BAM, that is nice booty

Celebrate Pride, see a show, and shake your groove thing at the Everybooty party, which crams a borough’s worth of everything queer and artsy into three floors of dance troupes, drag queens, DJs, and devilish art.

Hidden Marvels

Everyone loves “Avengers” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” but Marvel movies were once a lot more, well, quirky. This talk and video clip show from Den of Geek explores little-remembered “Marvel Oddities,” like the 1960s Captain America cartoon, or the totally ’80s version of “Daredevil.”

Keep on truckin’
