One of the biggest nights on the circuit party scene descended onto New York City. Welcome to the Black Party.

Produced by The Saint at Large, nearly 3000 party lovers descended on the New York Expo Center in the Bronx on Saturday (6 April). This year’s theme was Caligula: The Last Party, emulating the sexual depravity and parties of that infamous Roman emperor.

Gay porn star Matthias Von Fistenberg took the title role.

Black Party: Rites XL is known as the daddy of all gay circuit parties and delivers an intense and immersive experience. The night spreads through 90,000 sq ft of space, with multiple stages, a dance floor, lounges, and a Minotaur’s Maze space for cruising.

Male performers flood the arena, DJs bring spectacular music and light displays illuminate it all.

The highlight of the party – which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019 – are the Strange Live Acts. These performers are clad in elaborate costumes such as loin cloths and Roman soldier outfits, while other performers are bound to crosses.

They perform throughout the night, following a storyline akin to an opera (though a lot more kinky).

40 years of dirty fun

At 8am, DJ Mike Servito played the iconic In the Name of Love by Sharon Redd. She last performed at the Black Party in 1988. She passed away in 1992 from an AIDS related illness. However, they commemorated her memory as a disco ball ascended and the song filled the airways.

Also, proceeds from the event are going towards The Saint Foundation. This non-profit acquires and preserves artifacts of New York City LGBTI nightlife from the post-Stonewall era.

This is to preserve the socio-economic, political and cultural history of the New York LGBTQ community for years to come.
