Shake your groove thing!

The Bay Ridge lawmaker may have voted no on same-sex marriage last month — making himself the only Brooklyn state senator to do so — but for one night this summer, he’ll have us moving to music that’s the stuff of gay anthems.

That’s right. Golden’s annual free outdoor concert series, which will bring live acts to Marine Park and Bay Ridge this July and August, will feature a night of disco, when Disco Unlimited brings the best of ’70s disco to Marine Park on July 13.

Thanks to acts like the Village People and anthems like Diana Ross’s “I’m Coming Out,” the genre is intrinsically linked to gay culture of the late 1960s and early ’70s. And whether you identify or not, it makes for a fun night out.

“I host these events so to give us a local opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy fun filled evenings of entertainment,” said Golden in a statement. “So bring your chair and your blanket and head to the park — it’s show time.”

Here’s hoping they play Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family.”

Disco Unlimited at Marine Park [Fillmore Avenue], July 13 at 7 pm. Free. For info, call (718) 236-7547 or (718) 238-6044.
