Memorial Day weekend is what most people consider to be the beginning of summer, and hence when we can wear white. Therefore it is no surprise that this weekend brings South Florida many white themed parties.
The 2009 White Fort Lauderdale has many events leading up to the main event on Sunday at Voodoo Lounge.
The first event is on Friday, May 22nd and is entitled Fuego Blanco at Noche Latina Fridays at Sea Monster. This is a White party geared specifically toward the Latin community with a show starring Alyssa Kartia, Champagne Bordeaux, and Justice Divine, DJ Billy Hallquist spinning the hottest Latin music, and a Hot in White Contest at 1:30 am, where the winner will receive $300 in cash and prizes. However, all entries receive prizes. This event is sponsored by UniK Wax and Fabscout Entertainment.
Saturday, May 23rd features Angels in White at Bill’s and stars recording artist Jeannie Tracy live at midnight singing her hits “Everybody UP,” “Cha-Cha Heels,” “Party People” and more. My buddy VJ/DJ Gary Nolan will be spinning all night long.
Also Saturday night White Fort Lauderdale features a womens event as Pandora events presents White Wonderland for women who love women at the Sea Monster. Doors open at 10pm and feature ½ price drinks from 10 pm to 11 pm.
On Sunday May 24th from 5 pm to 4 am Voodoo Lounge and Gary Santis Events join together to present the White wear T dance, followed by Voodoo Lounge’s 10th annual White Wear Party and the 2009 White Fort Lauderdale Event.

Miami features their own White Wear Party as Wendy Joe, Danny, Vegas and Milancita brings White Wear to Discotekka on Saturday, May 23rd. The night will feature opening music by resident DJ Jarell and spinning to the wee hours of the morning is DJ Tracy Young. They will also feature performances by Vegas Dion, TP Lords, Erika Norell, Victoria Sky’s and Gina D’Angelo. In addition that night will be a stop on the Manhunt Roadtrip and they will be giving away DVDs, gift baskets, and tickets to Gaydays events.
Now that you know there are 5 white wear party events any self respecting gay man or woman is thinking, “I have nothing to wear, where should I go shopping?” Well, I can’t help you women reading this but for the men I have many suggestions. Check out Bottoms & Tops, which now has 3 stores: the original and Icon are in the Georgie’s shopping center or the outlet, next door to Sidelines. In addition, keep your eyes open as John Anthony (owner) is opening some new stores in the near future. Other places to find fun White Wear are Zoo 14, Zoo Two, Ball, Gaymart, Ruff Riders and of course The Pride Factory.
