FLICK: The Pevensie siblings are back in another installment of C. S. Lewis fantasy series with The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian on Friday, May 16. With two pretty young things at the helm of this PG grandiose thriller, the 26 year-old title character, Ben Barnes, (above, left) and the eldest and handsomest Pevensie brother, Peter, played by 21 year-old William Moseley, (right) theres no shame in planting yourself amongst 12 year-olds reading The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe at your local theater. Its like Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings in this big budget fantastical voyage to childhood. Watch the trailer here.
WET BOYS: This is no place to sit in your red velvet seat and nod off during the second act. In fact, there are no seats, and you will probably get wet, so dont wear that fancy suit, and you might be encouraged to reach out and touch the performers from the mylar pool lowered to within reach. From the creators of De La Guarda comes the high-energy performance piece that brings together music, visual effects and acid-trippy choreography with Fuerzabruta. And this time gays get an extra special treat. Friday, May 16 is the first in a monthly installment of Boys Night -- hot men dancing and falling around you, wet. Yes, please. Check out the trailer here and buy your tickets here.
PHILANTHROPIC FASHION: If youve been missing your Project Runway, this is your chance to see some outrageous (yet fabulous) fashion with unconventional materials get judged hard. On Thursday, May 15, you can catch Tulips & Panses: The Headdress Affair (above) and it supports a good cause; Village Care of New York, which provides essential healthcare for people living with HIV/AIDS. Hosted by Full Frontal Fashions James Aguiar, honors of Most Beautiful and Most Outrageous will be bestowed on the creations of a long list of It designers including Betsey Johnson, Alvin Alley and many more paired up with New Yorks finest floral gurus. Get your tickets here.
PAGES: May brings us some delights for the heart, eyes and brain. First, we cant wait to be challenged on how gay we really are with Joel Derfners Swish: My Quest to Become The Gayest Person Ever (May 13). When Joel was a little six year-old at summer camp and denied his due right to explore needlework and flower arranging classes, he made becoming the gayest person on Earth his personal mission: gay like aerobics instructor, go-go boy and musical theater professional gay. Send your friends a gay haiku, courtesy of Joel, here. For our more cerebral reads we turn to Arsenal Pulp Press for Peter Flinsch: The Body In Question (May 1) for the amazing biography and works of a German Nazi who was jailed for kissing a boy but survived to become one of the bravest queer artists in history. Check out a gallery of his work here. And Terry Goldie delivers QueerSexLife, (May 1) an autobiographical exploration of every queer theory in the book.
