Our longtime friend and collaborator Michael Bullock recently published his first book, Roman Catholic Jacuzzi, to much acclaim. Michael is the American publisher of BUTT Magazine — a community resource for international homosexuals — as well as features editor for Apartamento, contributor and publisher for PIN-UP, and works on the publishing side of Fantastic Man and The Gentlewoman.
Style Guy Glenn O’Brien deems Roman Catholic Jacuzzi “a must read for Catholics and those who love one,” and Bruce Benderson, author of Catching Salinger, calls it “the first honest look at sexuality in the Catholic Church.” The book’s publisher Karma hosts a book launch this evening in New York at Artists Space's new TriBeCa bookstore with music by Honey Dijon and a special performance by the Harlem-based gay and lesbian gospel choir Lavender Light, tonight from 7 to 9pm at 55 Walker Street.

Our friend and comrade Michael Bullock, a contributing editor and head of special projects at BUTT Magazine, has released a new book with Karma, one of our favorite haunts in New York State. If you’re not sure what the book is about, you can get a sliver of light from Francesco Vezzoli’s assessment that “it reminded me why to this day I still don’t regret having refused holy communion when I was six years old.” Nab a copy on Karma’s shop.

Summer doesn’t have to be over. Join us in the desert for five days of amazing bands, DJs and performers at HANDS ON, our queer music & arts festival at Ace Hotel & Swim Club during Palm Springs Pride, November 2-7, brought to you by Heineken. Rooms are 15% off and we’ve got a handful of Feel Good Spa specials ranging from the mystical to the practical, using everything from crystals to sugar. It’s going to be about 85, so you can have a second summer vacation in November.
BUTT Magazine hosts a pop-up shop and Jeremy Kost previews new photographs in the Clubhouse and signs his book It’s Always Darkest Before Dawn, hosted by Mr. Black LA. Light Asylum swoops in from New York with their soul-spinning, operatic drama, in collaboration with CockFight, an underground warehouse party hailing from Los Angeles and Beyondadoubt, just back from a European tour with Beth Ditto. Stay Gold brings their dance-cum-art party from San Francisco to duels on the decks with DJs from LA’s Mustache Mondays. Mr. Black plays another poolside afternoon party, and Blok and Myles Cooper play live sets in the Amigo Room. We’re also screening two films — The Strange History of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and Paris is Burning — at the Commune pool, on Thursday and Friday night, respectively.
See you there, with bells on. Stay tuned here for interviews, videos and more, and see the full schedule on our calendar.
