Mousetrap Pride Party

'

Editorial Review

Even the Black Cat is getting into the spirit of Capital Pride, as it hosts a special quasi-Pride edition of Mousetrap. No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. Michael and Zack of happening local blog The New Gay are joining resident DJ Mark Zimin at what they're calling "a co-ed, straight-friendly, alternaqueer Pride event." Even better: They're taking requests on TheNewGay.net. The crowd will probably still be mostly straight -- this is still D.C.'s biggest and longest-running Britpop night -- but it's a welcome alternative for those not interested in the house music offered at most other Pride parties.
