What do you think of the "Black Party" in NYC? Do you like to dance? What about the scourge of meth? What do you think of curcuit parties?

    I went to the black party in nyc and had the time of my life. Dancing is very enjoyable and important to me. But lots of these guys do a lot of drugs. The party started Saturday night at 11:30pm, and ended at 3pm in the afternoon the next day. I went to sleep Sat night, woke up at 7am, and got to the club well rested 8am.

    im interested in this topic myself. i quite like to dance and enjoy taking pills for special occasions. however, it seems like at a gay party the focus would be way more on the guys and sex and all that shit, rather than just dancing and having fun. what are your experiences?

    My God! That's a lot of questions to answer:

    Black Party: I enjoyed this event in the context of a relationship [twice]. We had a great time. Music was great, exhibitions super interesting, and the back room...well, I got about 10 feet in and realized it was not for me...

    Dance: I love to dance. Was there something more to this question?

    Meth: Awful drug and really is doing a number on our gay community. This was the drug that put many of my friends [and myself] through recovery. I promised myself I wouldn't do meth again until I was 85 years old...which at that age, most of the negative impact will be mitigated!

    Circuit Parties: Had their time and place for me in my 20's. I still enjoy going to a club now and then, but honestly, the most serious drug I partake in is about 3 drinks or a cup of coffee...and I am WAY OK with it...

    Good topic. icon_wink.gif

    Back in my day it was called the Black Panther Party and it was a whole lot more fun.

    I used to go to the circuit parties in New York a billion years ago--the White Party, the party on the Intrepid--and had a great time. But I'd feel silly going now. Not just that I'm older, but it's a whole scene that I am long out of.

    What exactly is a circuit party?? What's the difference between a circuit party and a regular club event? Why do gay people have to seek out drugs for entertainment enhancement?
