I’m Tom. I’m a writer in New York City. I’ve lived here for five years. When I first arrived and was looking for work, I made a deal with myself that I would spend the second half of every day exploring the city. I did this for six months and barely scratched the surface. In 2008, my good friend Abi and I started Gayletter, a weekly guide to fun stuff happening in the city. For the BUTT Fag Map, I selected my favorite bars, parties, and places to visit in NYC. It covers a lot, but of course not everything, this grimy city of ours is most fun when you get out there and discover a few things on your own. Enjoy!

    I’ve been living in this crazy city for two years, and I haven’t been out on the scene in almost half that. Now that Spring is here, maybe I’ll be more motivated to get sexy. Metropolitan is the best on this list. There are tons of new Gay Bars popping up in my neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. Gays are staging an all-out take over here and I am NOT complaining. Anyone know how these new spots are?

    DAMIAN  ·  7 years ago  · 

    Thanks for mentioning Buddies, Adam. Of course, as the host/DJ, I am biased, but I think Tuesdays are better than Mondays at Nowhere, if for no other reason than you can actually get laid at Buddies. For free. Well, maybe you’ll have to pay for a few drinks, or the cabfare back to his place, but not for the sex.

    ANTOINE  ·  8 years ago  · 

    As many of the BUTTs are artists, i think it would really be helpful to list on this page some underground/indie/awkward music, and art places to be absolutely seen.
    After all, the gay life is not the only one that can be done in NY !
