Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A coffee-table style book showcasing 230 flyers from NYC queer clubs from the 1990s, with commentary from nightlife luminaries of the era such as Michael Musto, Lady Bunny, DJ Larry Tee, Susan Morabito, Goldy Loxxx, and more.

The 1990s in New York City was a heady time for club goers. Massive dance clubs like the Roxy, Palladium, Limelight, and Tunnel drew fiercely passionate crowds. But the plucky smaller venues like Splash, Crowbar, Pyramid, and Sound Factory Bar were just as vital.

David Kennerly ventured into these now-legendary clubs. And when it was time to leave, promoters handed out flyers for the next week's parties. Most people tossed them on the sidewalk, David saved each and every one.

GETTING IN spotlights over 230 of the most eye-popping, culturally resonant examples from his collection. The invites are not only visually stunning –– depicting flamboyant Club Kids, shirtless hunks, and sassy drag queens –– but tell a story of a unique moment in history when the LGBTQ community was reeling from the AIDS crisis and nightspots provided a refuge. GETTING IN is the first book to showcase queer nightclub invites from this era.
