From gay nightlife listings to party pics, the gay social networking app Hornet has all the information you need whether you're a local gay New Yorker or a visitor to the Big Apple. Brandon Voss, Ladyfag, Brian Rafferty, Vincent Cooper and Daniel Nardicio are some of our favorite promoters who keep gay New York City nightlife alive and well. There are also lots of great gay bars in New York City, especially in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. These watering holes include Boxers NYC, Therapy, Industry Bar, Rise and Flaming Saddles. In Chelsea, you'll be able to imbibe at Barracuda Bar, The Eagle, Gym Sportsbar and REBAR. Or you can head downtown to the Village where you'll find gay New York City landmarks like Julius, The Monster and, of course, the Stonewall Inn where the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for gay and lesbian rights in the United States began. There's also lots of important gay New York City community organizations that contribute to the well-being of the city's LGBT community, including the Ali Forney Center, the LGBT Community Center, the Hetrick-Martin Institute Inc and the Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC). A bunch of fabulous annual happenings take place all year long on the gay New York City calendar such as NYC Gay Pride, Black Party, RuPaul's DragCon and NewFest, New York City's LGBT film festival.
