Yesterday Father Tony and I attended the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force Winter Party’s Under One Sun pool event at Miami Beach’s Surfcomber Hotel. This is the 19th annual Winter Party and I think I’ve only missed handful since 1993. Hit the play button for lots of happy people raising money for South Florida LGBT and AIDS causes. The Winter Party is volunteer-produced and staffed and 100% of the proceeds stay local. Amazing. Full-screen photos here.
After the pool event we attended a cocktail party for some of the big Task Force donors, then we headed north for the annual official Winter Party satellite event in Fort Lauderdale, which this year was held at Wilton Manor’s sprawling bear bar, Bill’s Filling Station. Which mean’s I’ve gotten to hear DJ Herbie James for three nights in a row. Crazy fun there and a sound system that really did justice to Herbie’s deep trance sound.
Today: the official and main beach event. I’m pre-exhausted!
