2014 Winner: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell At Great Scott

Every month, this sickening (that’s good) soiree thumbs its glitter-speckled nose at more mainstream gay nights dominated by neatly pressed polo shirts and pop-princess soundtracks. Here drag queens preen, artsy club kids strut in skin-flashing ensembles, experimental video art hypnotizes and musically curious DJs spin shimmering era- and genre-spanning anthems. A queer sensibility certainly pervades, but the creative culture and come-as-you-are ethos welcome anyone who lives loud and in color.
