Photo Gallery: Autostraddle NYC Rodeo Disco 2 Pride Party Photos

Hi everyone! How were your respective Pride celebrations?! We’re still recovering from ours. It was a fun weekend and it seems like it’s time to reminisce. So let’s do it with photographs!

As you may have heard, we held our 2nd Annual Rodeo Disco at Mason Dixon in NYC this past Sunday and man, you guys did not disappoint! Thanks for all who showed up and got down, and of course thanks to everyone there in spirit ’cause I know there are quite a few of you out there (wherever you are not in New York City).

So what happened? Well from what we can remember, this:

DJ Carlytron and DJ Saratonin made the dance floor hot with sweet beats:Rodeo Disco

The best dance group ever, The Spangles, sent a few dancers (out of their many)
to our party to perform for the crowd:Rodeo Disco

Rachael Hip-Flores kisses Nicole Pacent IRL too!

Many of our fierce attendees took on the mechanical bull all damn night, like future Autostraddler Gaby:Rodeo Disco

and GO! Mag correspondent, Sarah. You may also remember her as Miss April:

and without us even planning or anything, Kahlen from Top Model Cycle 4 was our bartender along with two other lovelies who bought our new t-shirts and sported them all night! Rodeo Disco

There’s more to be seen in our epic photo gallery including Rachel Robinson emceeing and the Pride/Dyke March — look how cute you all are! I love lesbians!

  1. Awww! You girls look great!

    Except I don’t see any of the AutoStraddle Staff on the bull…

    • I TOTALLY WENT ON THE BULL WHAT THE EFF. I don’t have any pictures but I do remember camera flashes so… What gives you guys? I’m still walking funny.

  2. this is like that one time in high school where everyone took off to the beach and i stayed home like a dumbassloserface and then afterwards they had all these photos and they even saw a beached jellyfish and i told them how i watched mythbusters. this is just like that but worse.

  3. That looks like it was a great party, I’m jealous :)

    And please, tell me we can buy those Auto-straddle t-shirts! I want one very badly!

  4. Hello from South Africa! The RD looks like an amazing time! So sorry I missed it, grrls!

  5. I was there in spirit, but I wish I could have been there drinking spirits instead. Next yeeeear.

    PS – Where there any bull riding wardrobe malfunctions? Boobies!

    PPS – “Bull riding wardrobe malfunctions” is like that “chicken eating dog” statement. I spit in the face of grammar.

    • I probably was just a living wardrobe malfunction on the bull, but thankfully there are no pictures! (so far?)


    can we make a time machine now? b/c i’d like to go back to all of these moments.

    • like the way they made LI ice teas so sexy i wanted one even though they knock me on my ass?

      those ladies made the autostraddle tshirts look so damn good…

  7. I have so many feelings about the power of the clam group pic right now.

    Wish I were moving to NYC a couple of months earlier/had a time machine….

  8. Lovely pics! If I wasn’t so pooped from marching, I would’ve been there.

    PS- The girl w/the cropped blonde hair (in the 7th row, 2nd from left)…Is that Aneesa from RW Chicago?

  9. I really really really wish we could have been at this amazing party, not least of all because it’s almost certain none of our skanktastic exes would have followed us there!


  10. Looks like you had an amazing time! NYC is full of hotties!! Lovin the shots of all the lovely Autostraddle ladies-you’re all adorably cute/hot/cool/ok, now I’m just embarrassing myself.

    Even though I don’t *know* you guys IRL, these photos make me feel really happy and lucky to be part of the online Autostraddle community. You have created something really special here.

    Oh and Laneia, can I hop a lift in your time machine too? Ta.

  11. I missed this–so when is the next Autostraddle party? The answer to that should not be next year…
