All you straight singles have had plenty of chances to get hooked up — now it’s time for Brooklyn gays and lesbians to party down.

The freak-nasty “BK Hookup” party in Gowanus is back, and this time it’s all about pairing up same-sex singles at the “Big Gay Meatup: Spring Break Edition” at The Bell House on April 29.

“It’s going to be fun — we have a lot of singles signed up already,” said Erica Reitman, co-founder of the party series and editor of the F—ked in Park Slope blog. “We’ve had enough straight events, so we thought we’d have a gay-focused one with a spring theme since the weather’s getting warmer.”

And if it’s anything like the last bash — when even our columnist hooked up! — the house will be coming down. Droves of sexy singles, cheap drinks and the hottest dance party this side of the East River await those who are looking for that special someone (without all those awkward barriers at the average bar scene).

For the main event, random advanced ticketholders ($8) will be selected to take part in a hilarious, old-school dating game hosted by some killer comedians. There’s also an option to fill out a personal ad to assist in the shackin’ up!

Spring attire is optional, but Reitman said a photographer will be on hand to capture all of those spring fling moments, so “plan accordingly.” Dust off those oh-so-chic Hawaiian shirts and get ready for a party that promises to please.

Big Gay Meatup at the Bell House [149 Seventh St. between Second and Third avenues in Gowanus (718) 643-6510], April 29, 7 pm–2 am. Tickets are $8. For info, visit
