What to do this weekend

There is plenty happening in and around Boston this weekend. For those of you heading to Ptown for the  6th Annual Mr. New England Leather Weekend have fun and for those of you slapping on your tuxedo to attend the 37th Annual HRC dinner on Saturday night have a lot of fun.

For the rest of us, here are some eventss that I think you may enjoy. If you’re looking for fun outside of a bar check out Find Your Tribe: Short Film Program hosted by Wicked Queer & Boston Jewish Film Festivals on Saturday at the MFA in Boston on Friday. Alternatively if you need a good laugh head over to Penny 4 Ya Thoughts?  at Jacques for some painfully funny dating stories.

There are a ridiculous number of dance parties (check’em out below), but as a child of the 80s I have to give a shout out to dbar’s Decades Dance Party featuring music of the 1980s on Saturday. On Sunday go check out Destiny at Carrrie Nation Cocktail Lounge for their Drag Me To Brunch party.

Boston Gay Men’s book club is reading Kens

Boston Book Festival, BBFHeterosexuality is so last season in Raziel Reid’s book, Kens, which was published this past September.

The book has been described as a gay Heathers meets Mean Girls. Kens is a about the three Kens of Willows High who rule the school and Tommy Rawlins who so desperately wants to be accepted by the Kens. This is a funny and provocative story about identity and acceptance.
