At 1 AM on Saturday night I am at home, drinking straight Jack Daniels by myself, and feeling equally excited and nervous. I was told by one of my more experienced friends to "absolutely not go before 2 AM." My only knowledge of what the Black Party would be like was Gawker's exit-poll video from last year.
We sent Rod Townsend and videographer Nick McGlynn out on Saturday night/Sunday morning to find out what really happens at the Black Party, the enormous annual S&M-themed gay circuit party that rocks the gays of our fine city at the end of every winter. The answers may be totally Not Safe For Work. Video cut by the estimable Richard Blakeley.
