the white party

This Weekend, Palm Springs Will Be Overtaken By Gay Men Wearing White (Like Every Other Weekend)

“We’ve been booked for five months,” says Art DellaVedova, the manager of Palm Springs’ clothing-optional resort on Warm Sands Drive. “We have probably turned away 30 to 40 people.” The only difference between this weekend, when thousands of gays will descend upon Palm Springs for Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party, and other weekends? It’s going to be easier than ever to find an anonymous roommate who will let you crash out in his bed. [photo via]

      Shannon is such an ignorant prick that its sad. I went one year and sure its a big party, but its also a big hug. Thousands of thousands of gay people who know each other having lunch dancing at the pool and just having a great time. Shannon probably spends the nights popping ass pimples and is jealous.

      Shannon probably hasn’t finished 5th grade yet, so I doubt she’s aware of the drunken debauchery called “Spring Break” where hetero college students go wild, too.

      God, not another WPPS hating post by Queerty. Seriously, your request for comp passes was never received and there are no comp passes in the mail. Get over it. Try again next year.

      Might I suggest you drop a flinstone vitamin, drive over to your local HomoDepot, head for the lighting department, plug in your ipod earplugs and have a blast!

      Actually, most “bears” are disgusting (effeminate overeating lazy guys who think the “bear” title explains and excuses why they’re fatties).. But those guys aren’t too bad : not too fat and just a little bit hairy.

      It isn’t the beards or hairiness that turns me off, AT ALL – in fact, it’s almost mandatory for a guy to have a beard, for me to want to boing them.

      It’s just that these guys’ bodies are not too attractive. Their heads don’t fit on their over-worked out bods and the guy on the right is obviously one who abuses steroids.

      My only critique is why Palm Springs? After what that city put gay people through over the last year, uncovering a serious case of institutionalized homophobia, why spend our tourist dollars there?

      West Hollywood is a Lady Gaga-listening road trip away.

      I like the body hair. I think one of them even has a cute face once you get passed the body type. Do not like the body shape. I don’t like them skinny, but I don’t like them this over developed hulking either. I agree that this look along with other looks like “I’m a Twink!” seem like overcompensation. Its like their bodies are uniform that all look the same. BUt, then I dont like conformity so that’s likely what turns me off the most about the image.

      No Adonis, you are just into your own gay stereotype. Its like the modern version of the Village People- a Drag Queen, A Twink, A Bear, etc. Stereotypes all. Not an ounce of originally amongst them.

      Yes, it is a well known fact that if you do not find someone attractive or question the conformity of trying to fit into niches that means you are “abusive” in the same way as people who are trying to murder gays or deny us our rights. Thanks for calling us out.

      Who gives a Fuck?! If you don’t like these types of events, stay home or go some place else. It’s no’t my kind party but far be it for me to try and make someone feel shitty for attending. There are biggerisses in the world to worry about.

      Wow, what hate! These two guys are acquaintances from Gold’s Gym in Hollywood… neither is bald, as if having male pattern baldness from an excess of testosterone were somehow bad, both are strong manly guys and neither has had a bad word to say about the skinny hairless estrogen enriched ‘men’ here who have such nasty horrible things to say about them.

      Comments like above are cliches of effeminate homosexual bitterness. Maybe, I’m thinking there is some truth to the cliche after all.

      @Truthful: Your incredible power that allows you to detect steroid use through nothing more than a photograph is sorely needed by the Olympics, Major League Baseball, and just about every athletic enterprise in the world. You could be the world’s first trillionaire.

      A couple of decades ago, I had a boyfriend who resembled the one on the right. He was nearly 7 feet tall and weighed around 265 pounds of mostly muscle. It was just who he was. His brothers were of similar build as were a couple of his mother’s brothers. He was undoubtedly the strongest man I ever knew. He did not belong to a gym, but had worked outdoors since he was old enough to drive a tractor. He was also one the gentlest men ever, perhaps, because he was too big for all but the most stupid to challenge. He also liked to draw and was very good. In the five years we were boyfriends, I will guarantee that he never used steroids.

      The guy on the right of the photo does not look worked out. He simply looks big.

      @AL:

      Why do you simply assume it’s bitchy effeminate men who take issue with this?

      Maybe the real issue is the same rampant phoniness that so many gay men subscribe to. It’s not enough to like a particular activity, or to wear particular clothes, you have to fashion an entire identity out of a label.

      And maybe it’s an issue because it’s exactly what we’ve been fighting against the past fifty years. We’re supposed to be more complex than these vacuous parodies of masculinity or femininity. For God’s sake, it’s 2011 – stop dressing up your insecurity with an empty stereotype. Or don’t. Your choice.

      Seems that the ‘White Parties’ are still the Alisters dissing the rest of us. Actually partner and I look pretty much this way, not so much gym lately as working an organic farm start up and no steroids.

      If memory serves weren’t the White parties supposed to be a charity benefit for hiv services?

      I’m so sorry to say that when they started and I was going to several funerals a week, I was afraid they would turn out to be just booze and anonymous sex..which I don’t really have a problem with.. its the shallow bickering of a bunch of small minded queens grow up children. please.
