Jubilant LGBTQ Protestors Throw Dance Party Outside Mike Pence’s House
Westgay , a frisky gay dance party in the West Village, ended last summer when the building was sold to condominium developers. PrettyUgly, a twink-filled dance party at the Diamond Horseshoe in Times Square, ended its run this year. New owners, new directions. And in February, Escuelita , a Latin-flavored gay dance club that throbbed for decades near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, shuttered its doors because of declining attendance.

A circuit party is a large dance event. It extends through the night and into the following day, almost always with a number of affiliated events in the days leading up to and following the main event. Proto-circuit parties in the late s, the precursors of what later became circuit parties, were called disco parties. They lasted only one evening and were held in various large venues in metropolitan areas with large gay populations. They came to resemble underground rave parties in some respects, but differ in that circuit parties are highly publicized and professionally produced, and tend to attract people from a wider age range and a broader geographic area.
