Just when you think Southern California couldn’t get any hotter, thousands of sexy gay men flocked to the desert city of Palm Springs for the annual White Party weekend.
This isn’t just any weekend. This is one of the world’s biggest gay circuit parties. There are an incredible 12 events packed into three days! There are pool parties, outdoor concert festivals, white carpet events, and more. Each one jam-packed with gay men ready to party.
The weekend kicked off with a casual Friday afternoon pool party at the Renaissance Hotel, which was a free event, open to anyone who wanted to get a glimpse at what the weekend events were about to entail.
The party really got started at the Friday night underwear party. Guys showed up in droves, sporting their sexiest underwear. From leather harnesses to silver body glitter, showing off as much skin as possible was the name of the game at this event. Australia’s DJ Kitty Glitter did an amazing job at keeping the dance floor hopping all night long.
On Saturday morning guys were stripping down to their speedos and board shorts at the Wet N Wild Waterpark for the Splash Pool Party. It was a full-day event with guys hanging out in cabanas, hitting the water slides and relaxing on the lazy river ride. The music was pumping all throughout the water park. Best of all, there were plenty of bars and places to eat with no line-ups. Even with a few clouds lingering around, threatening to dampen the mood of the party, the power of the gays kept the sun shining.
The signature event of the weekend was the White Party. Guest, completely dressed in over-the-top, all white costumes, arrived to stroll across a pure white carpet lined with photographers, snapping pictures of the who’s who of the gay community who showed up for the biggest social event of the weekend.
The highlight of the night was a surprise performance by American Idol superstar, Jordin Sparks. Jordin put on a fierce performance, which left everyone in an amazing mood, ready to hit the final event of Saturday night, the Saturday Climax After Hours, held at the Renaissance Hotel.
After a casual Sunday morning brunch with the boys, it was back to the Renaissance Hotel pool deck for another spectacular pool party. The Perry Twins has the beats rocking all afternoon long as the drinks flowed and people relaxed in deck chairs and cabanas.
The big event on Sunday was the Circus T-Dance, held right next to the Renaissance Hotel. The massive outdoor venue featured a giant T-shaped stage, raised platform VIP area, two massive bars, and washroom facilities as far as the eye could see.
Towering over the festival grounds was a giant Ferris wheel, giving incredible views from high above the event. While there was fantastic music and live performances all afternoon and into the evening.
Following the T-Dance most of the crowd headed back across the street to the ballroom at the Renaissance Hotel for the Closing Party. It was here that DJ Abel celebrated his 20th anniversary performing at White Party.
White Party Palm Springs is one of the most incredible circuit party weekends. The event is an incredible opportunity to meet new friends and party with the biggest names in the gay community, all together, under one roof.
It’s hot. It’s fun. It’s sexy. It’s over-the-top!
