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!”

Late Sunday afternoon, thousands will converge under the desert sky for the “Big Top Circus” T-Dance. Hot dancing bodies and cool breezes will fill the festival grounds as DJs Ben Bakson (Germany) and Dan Slater (Australia), spin the latest music, and the most spectacular acts of the season hit the stage. As the sun sets, a heart-warming tribute to Jeffrey Sanker will fill the sky. 

The weekend wraps up with “Afterlife”, the Sunday night closing party. DJs Joe Gauthreaux and Mauro Mozart provide the sonic fuel you’ll need for the journey.

    There’s so much to love about White Party but my favorite part is meeting new people and seeing old friends. The events there are always something to look forward to.

    1. John-Michael Scurio

      Life is artistically amazing when you really think about it. I find myself consistently in awe of something and that is likely because I’ve always enjoyed observing people and people make art and are art. Nowadays, and with all the social sites out there, everyone acts like they’re on stage and that’s because the human race has evolved into a stronger awareness that we are all here contributing something and that is because actually – WE ALL ARE HERE CONTRIBUTING SOMETHING! Art comes from “people.” What I love most about White Party Palm Springs is that it brilliantly and artistically brings people together from all over the world to celebrate our existence and our contributions. It’s become a huge symbol to the world and it is an incredible way to show ALL people that we are here.

      I truly love White Party Palm Springs because it is an exceptional, symbolic, event to celebrate our beautiful existence here on Earth.

    White Party is the best way to kickstart your summer! Everyone is there to let their hair down and have a fun time which makes it easy to meet new friends and gather with old ones from all over. Production is amazing and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for WP 2022!! See you homos there

    1. Devin Dominguez

      White party is special because it’s a chance for our community to let loose from all the pressures of existing in our various political landscapes. It’s a chance for us to come together and recognize eachother for the struggle of living, and to enjoy lifes splendors as one.

    It’s my first time attending White Party Palm Springs and so far what I like about it is that a lot of my friends are attending as well. Friends that I haven’t seen in a while from different parts of the country. I like that this event is so we’ll know that people literally make a “pilgrimage” to here. I’m excited about the new people I’ll meet and overall excited to dress up and dress down! The line up looks amazing and the commentary I’ve heard online and offline speaks volumes. Can’t wait!
