Bounce With Us Inside Our 2019 Pride Party


You love to see it

Welcome to our third annual NYLON Pride party, which came in two parts: a panel, hosted at The Phluid Project, and a very big, very gay bash, which we threw at the Bowery Electric. It was easily the best Pride party of the year.

We started things off with a panel on intersectional queerness, hosted by our editor-in-chief Gabrielle Korn and moderated by our senior entertainment editor Sesali Bowen, where we heard from Kimberly Drew, Jari Jones, Ericka Hart, NNEKA, and Twiggy. After that, we hopped over to the Bowery Electric for a night of drag and dancing. It didn't hurt that our thirst was quenched by Bud Light, Smirnoff, Milagro Tequila, Ritas, and Nomadica, our drink sponsors for the night.

And don't even get us started on the entertainment! A surprise set from Big Freedia (!!!) and drag performances by Jan Sport, West Dakota, Serena Tea, and Charlene Incarnate were the highlights of the night. And, to make things even more hype, TomboyX outfitted The Dance Cartel in its Pride collection, which was nothing short of a gay masterpiece.

We talk to the stars and creator about the show's iconic first season

Veronica Mars is a show that's had more than nine lives over the course of its 15-year run. What began as a teen drama about a young girl-turned-private investigator digging into the mystery of her best friend's murder, has evolved into a universe filled with complex characters, twisting story lines, and a cult following more than happy to go along for the extended ride.

Winchester's Black students got jokes

"If everyone stayed exactly the same, life would be tedious and predictable... like the third season of a Netflix show." That's just one of the not-at-all-subtle winks to its network in the Dear White People Season 3 trailer.
