Superman turns the ripe age of 75 this year, and that milestone is not lost on the Gay Geeks of New York. In celebration of the new Man of Steel flick, the LGBTQ group is planning something … super. They’re dedicating Saturday (June 15) to the comic book superhero with a movie outing and birthday bash at Rockbar on Christopher Street.

Dressing up as Superman is mightily encouraged for the activities, so dust off the spandex and red underpants.

Here’s more about the Gay Geeks of New York from their website:

Gay Geeks of New York is a community of LGBTQ and supportive geeks of all backgrounds and ages. Founded in August 2011 by Nick DelGiudice, GGNY began as a monthly Geek Trivia gathering, which remains the signature social gathering of the group. Since then, GGNY’s membership and calendar have expanded to include several events a month, including a bi-monthly Geek Pictionary gathering, sing-alongs, movie outings, lunch meet-and-greets, themed parties and gatherings, and charitable and LGBTQ Pride events!
