All Colors of the Rainbow

Used to be, the only place where black gay dudes got together in any quantity was the Coliseum, and a helluvalot of those guys were on the DL. It was more than a little tense: there were beautiful boys with whom you’d really, really like to dance, but who looked like they might punch you if you did anything overtly gay within ten feet of them. This is manifestly not the scene at the UnderWorld Hip-Hop Night at Club Purgatory: a black-ish but healthily mixed gathering of extremely hot and extremely friendly boys, coming together under the aegis of Blaq Boi entertainment and DJ Dimples.

Underworld goes down each Thursday night. Club Purgatory is located at 1000 State Rd. 84 in Fort Lauderdale. No cover ΄til 12; $5 thereafter. First drink’s on the house. For more info, call 954-937-2751, or visit myspace.com/blacqboi_ent.
