Even if youʼve never heard of the Naked Boys Reading before—you kind of get the idea. Itʼs literally naked boys, reading. What is a huge success in London and Brighton finally comes to Berlin on April 9, 2015. Founder Dr. Sharon Husbands will be your host together with the infamous Berlin drag queen Pansy. Sharon Husbands partner in crime, The Duchess of Pork, will be serving tunes before, in between, and after the readings. To everyoneʼs surprise, the theme for the evening will be “Berlin.” Hand-picked boys will read their favourite stories from and about the city wearing not more than a book. Support for this event has been provided by the Berlin publishing house Bruno Gmünder. After the literal meat inspection, the party will go on. New Yorkʼs finest queer performance party Pussy Faggot will be held in Berlin for the first time, bringing together “one of the coolest, most uniquely blended crowds around—pussies, faggots, dykes, trannies, you name it.“ (Time Out New York) Don’t miss this! A little preview after the jump.

Sometimes more simply IS more. That’s how it went at the 10th anniversary party of Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke on Monday. Despite many other special guests and performers, like Ziúr and ReveRso, the band Eat Lipstick quite rocked it – not only by celebrating birth(day), when Mad Kate came out naked underneath Anita Drink’s dress. If you didn’t wake up with glitter everywhere the next morning, you’ve cleary done something wrong. Enjoy the photos after the jump.
Last week the annual Sparkle Army party exploded for the fourth time at Monster Ronson’s. Femme fatal Jackee Word once again swung her barely covered ass around the dancing pole and Peaches made surprise appearance during the Sparkle outfit contest. Enjoy the photos and animations after the jump.

This week brings us the first set of Halloween-esque parties, a couple of interesting exhibition openings and another revolution by Dorkypark. This and more after the jump.
With the Berlin Music Week going on this week the schedule is brimming with amazing events and concerts. Of course the Berlin Festival is one of the highlights of the week-end and we are looking forward to it because we are involved in it this year. It’s still a surprise but we will reveal it in a couple of days. Exciting!!! Find out what else is going on this week in our weekly event guide after the jump.
This week is offering us the traditional Tanz in den Mai with many open air parties today and tomorrow. The Berlin Web Week is taking place at Station for all of those web nerds amongst you. And the Berghain is offering us some very strong music events on Wednesday and Thursday. Find out more after the jump.

Helloooo 2012. We were thinking a lot if we should do a 2011 recap or a 2012 forecast. But, frankly I’ve seen quite enough of these on the big wide interdolly and I want to spare you yet another. So let’s get 2012 rolling with our event of the first week. We have the usual mix of art, movies, parties and other opportunities for a fun night after the jump.
Rangleklods by Jeppe Svendsen
This week is the week of the returns. On Wednesday the Blind Date Swingers Club Mix CD Exchange Party is coming back with new rules and new venue after a longer break, also the Travelettes Christmas Market is back with a big charity tomobola, and finally Rangleklods who is one of my favorite upcoming electronic music acts has returned to Berlin for two live gigs this weekend. Check out all of these events and more after the jump.
Well, Claudio can complain as much as he likes about our colorful and silly outfit party photos here, but I will post yet another one of them, and again a heavily animated one! This time from the glitter bomb that was the third annual Sparkle Army party at Monster Ronson’s. The crazy Karaoke bar has glammed up big time for this with a new fabulous disco light floor, sparkeling wallpaper and blinking long drink glasses. Fun! Have a look at the explosion after the jump on 3 pages!

Most of the time we are used to taking. Take a photo, take some time, take a piss, take the cake, take that. How about this week we do a little giving. And what giving feels better than one that includes taking also? Take a piece of art, give money to charity for instance. Swell! Take this, as well as short films, concerts, gallery openings, workshops, parties and much more, as usual after the jump!
