Winter Party 2009

This past weekend was 2009's Winter Party in Miami. IGLTA is a sponsor of the event so I went in support of the festival and of the organizers, the US' National Gay & Lesbian Task Force. The event seemed to be a huge success and I had a great time. Throughout the weekend there were events and parties at venues all across the city and everybody seemed to come alive with the festive vibe in the air.

By far, the ultimate experience is the Beach Party that happens each year on Sunday. Thousands of gay men (and a few lesbians) get together to just dance the day away on the sands of Miami Beach. A few friends joined me along with my friends from the IGLTA Board, Cordey Lash and George Carrancho of American Airlines. Parties come and go throughout the year, but we all agreed that Winter Party was one of the top events.

I'm looking forward to having IGLTA Sponsor the event again next year. Until then, Miami Beach's beach will just look a little bare.
