On June 22, BLOWOFF—the  hurly-burly music-lovers dance party hosted and DJed by musicians Bob Mould and Richard Morel—will celebrate its 5 year NYC Pride anniversary at The Highline Ballroom.  While the parties have long had a rep for great music, men and muscle, the slap on the ass has always been those sexy BLOWOFF flyers floating around town the week before.

In honor of the big 5th anniversary, Bob and Rich are giving away five 11 x 17 very-suitable-for-framing, heavy stock, BLOWOFF mini-posters (first slide above). Just go to www.blowoff.us to find out how to win one.

NY Gay Couple Attacked Outside Local Bar!

IFWT_CautionTape

A gay couple in Newburgh, New York was allegedly attacked by a group of women as they were leaving a bar.

The couple – David Ludwig and John Delk – were getting drinks at a local bar when a patron seemingly noticed Ludwig’s hand on Delk’s wrist.  According to the Times Herald-Record, the patron approached the couple and told them that it wasn’t a gay bar and that they should leave.

The couple refused but left when they finished their drinks. On their way out, a group of women confronted them, calling out, “You’re gay!” according to Ludwig.  The women then closed in on the couple and pinned them against the car, throwing punches until Ludwig broke free and called the police.

Delk ran off in the other direction. Ludwig said that the police mocked him when he said that women had attacked him, and drove off when he had gone to look for Delk.

The police are now investigating the attack as a hate crime.
