miamiwhitepartyOur correspondent David DiGiacomo has big plans to attend the 30h anniversary of White Party Week in Miami.

Come the end of November, White Party Week — the Care Resource HIV/AIDS fundraising extravaganza and the largest of its kind — hits its “Diamond Jubilee” landmark with a big bash at the new Perez Art Museum in Miami. From November 26 through December 1, more than 20,000 people from all over the world are expected to attend. The museum’s Biscayne Bay and skyline views are tremendous, and the hosts are anticipating the most glamourous white party yet with performances from DJ David Knapp and the White Party Symphony.

Our very own ManAboutWorld Correspondent (and circuit party aficionado) David DiGiacomo provides the lay of the land for Matinee Las Vegas, scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend along with his top tips for maximizing your enjoyment.

Matinee Las Vegas will take place over Memorial Day weekend (May 23-26). The party brand Matinee was launched over 15 years ago in Ibiza. It has evolved internationally with lavish events including Circuit Festival Barcelona (August 6-17). Upon expanding the brand to North America, the founders asked Patrick Crough and Jake Resnicow to oversee and produce all parties in the USA and Canada.

The first Matinee event was held during Pride NYC on Governors Island. Matinee Las Vegas debuted in 2011. The weekend will feature eight events over four days and nights. The party starts out Friday 9 pm-5 am at Share nightclub. Friday event DJs are Taito Tikaro, Nina Flowers and Felipe Lira.

ManAboutWorld correspondent David DiGiacomo has been to the White Party Palm Springs several times and brings us his top tips for enjoying this desert event celebrating its 25th anniversary.

This year’s White Party Palm Springs marks the 25th-anniversary since this legendary party began. This year it takes place April 25-28 2014. White Party Palm Springs was founded and is produced by Jeffrey Sanker who’s been dubbed “the high priest of gay parties.” The White Party started out with only 300 attendees in its first year and now anticipates hosting over 30,000 revelers from all over the world. Each year Sanker tries to introduce new and upcoming talent to perform at his events throughout the weekend. Such stars as Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, and Icona Pop have all performed at the White Party. I attended two years ago and decided it was time to revisit White Party Palm Springs this year. I have a few tips for those planning to attend the event.

  1. Eat at LULU 200 South Palm Danyon Dr. The food is excellent for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s also a great place to have a drink before heading out.
  2. East Arenas Rd hosts a slew of gay bars all within all within a few hundred feet of each other.
