Jeffrey Sanker’s Incredible Legacy
White Party was founded by LA-based legendary event creator and producer Jeffrey Sanker. For over three decades he produced the longest-running gay events around the world, including White Party Palm Springs, New Year’s Eve celebrations in Los Angeles, Miami, Rio de Janiero, One Mighty Party at Gay Day’s Orlando, and White Party Puerto Vallarta.
In addition to establishing a line-up of memorable, signature events designed for the gay community, Jeffrey Sanker played an important role in transforming Palm Springs from a quiet, desert resort town into a bustling gay mecca known for its inclusion, community building, and decadence.
Sadly, Jeffrey Sanker passed away in May 2021; however, his legacy will live on through the continuation of the new White Party Global event series.
“It is an honour to continue White Party Palm Springs for my dear friend Jeffrey,” said White Party Global Executive Producer Chris Diamond. “As we move forward with his vision of inclusion, diversity, and decadence, we are truly excited to once again showcase new dance music trends, global DJs, recording artists, state-of-the-art sound & visuals – and most importantly, our returning guests… beautiful men from all over the world!”
