RED... AND GREEN?

R

ed is always the color of the day when it comes to the first Saturday of June at the Magic Kingdom and the multitude of events that surround it. But to us, 2013’s Big Gay Gathering in Orlando is shaping up to be very Green.

REDUCED: Events have been streamlined. Gone are movie screenings, book club readings and anything at Universal Orlando— including Hard Rock Live. The venue once presented celebrity comedians, and for many years was home to a popular Sunday evening circuit party. That event has gone AWOL. Also missing are the upstarts. One promoter who offered a second menu of circuit crowd options cancelled before last year’s weekend ever began, while a third bear group declined to return after last year’s low bookings. We’re most curious about the disappearance of sober “We Are Not Saints” activities, but since their members are anonymous we don’t know who to ask. REUSED: Thanks to a “tried-and-true” formula

you won’t be able to swim in any host hotel’s pool without hearing a DJ lay down some mad beats…which will be indistinguishable from the ones before. Or after. And just when you thought the zealots had given up protesting Gay Day, here comes perpetual defeatists A Million Moms! The Moms say the event is “planned with the intent to desensitize children.” Frankly, with the amount of social lubricants that flow throughout the weekend, it’s not the kids getting desensitized. RECYCLED: After a brief hiatus, Johnny Chisholm and his One Mighty Weekend are back. So, too, is Arabian Nights as a venue for the after-hour circuit parties that were once relegated to a hotel basement ballroom.

A big Saturday night theme park party has also returned—albeit to Epcot’s World Showcase—and promoters promise a “new and improved formula,” which apparently means that there wont be any rides open. RELOCATED: Several groups have moved to new host hotels—Girls in Wonderland to the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort; Tidal Wave Weekend to the Holiday Inn Lake Buena Vista Downtown; and Orlando Black Pride to the Lake Buena Vista Resort Hotel Best Western. Also keeping the weekend environmentally green, an increase in the number of shuttles offered. Participants can save gas, and the risk of driving under the influence, by taking chartered busses from the host hotels to the promoter’s biggest events. Even the Parliament House will offer shuttles from the GayDayS host hotel to the landmark resort. But at the heart of it all, what remains completely the same is that on the first Saturday of June this year—June 1, to be exact— thousands of LGBTs will visit Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom en masse. It’ll be the 23rd consecutive time it’s happened, and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop—or be stopped— anytime soon. —Kirk Hartlage, Editor

EXPOS 2013 Popular each year are the numerous Expos hosted by the various promoters at their host hotels. Sure, there’s shopping for stuff : T’s, tanks, and trunks with an endless supply of pithy catchphrases and innuendos; skin-care, hair-care and mouth-care products that you never knew you cared about; and rainbow-festooned…well, everything. But there’s also shopping for the soul. You can learn about the latest challenges facing the LGBT community’s fight for equality, get introduced to political action committees and candidates supporting LGBT causes, and discover a nonprofit organization that will benefit from your support. Think of it all as a minimall for merchandise… and for the mind!

GD2013 WATERMARK’S COMPLETE GUIDE TO ORLANDO’S BIG GAY WEEKEND


Q&A Superpower you’d like to have? I’d like to crinkle my nose like Samantha Stevens and displace myself anywhere I imagine instantly. I love to go to new places, but I don’t like the travel of getting there.

BEV MCCLELLAN

Performs at Boogie Girls in Wonderland, House of Blues, Saturday, June 1, 9 p.m. & Indie Rock with Bev McClellan, Kitty O’Sheas, Sunday, June 2, 6 p.m. Your celebrity crush? Halle Berry. She’s breathtakingly gorgeous and talented. Favorite snack? Peanut butter filled pretzels! Last book you read? The Hobbit.

Favorite theme park attraction, ride or show? Dollywood, because it reminds me of home and, of course, my admiration for the incomparable Dolly Parton. Favorite ice cream/ frozen yogurt flavor? Favorite ice cream is Heavenly Hash or anything chocolate riddled!

Favorite TV show/ Guiltiest TV pleasure? My favorite TV show was Weeds; I’ve loved Mary Louise Parker since Fried Green Tomatoes. There’s nothing Nancy Botwin couldn’t battle. Am I guilty to admit I love Trailer Park Boys?  Not enough! The characters are so dumb and so loveable for it. Something about you people are always surprised to learn? People often seem really surprised that I don’t drink alcohol. I’m Irish and I’m a musician. Fallback karaoke track? “Shining Star.” The song reminds me of my Mom.

POOL PARTIES The first weekend of June is not only Orlando’s big gay gathering, it also marks the start of summer. No surprise then that some of the most popular activities of each year’s Gay Days week is the plethora of pool parties. Each of the party promoters host splash bashes at their host hotel, all with DJsupplied music, and some with the occasional special guest.

Some promoters, but not all, allow their hotel’s guests to attend pool parties for free. Prices listed are for tickets purchased at-the-door and are subject to change. In many cases advance-purchase discounts are available, including multi-event passes.

GAY DAY!

The original mass gathering of LGBTs in a theme park, Gay Day at the Magic Kingdom, has spawned similar outings at amusement parks across the globe. And nearly all of them also encourage the wearing of red T-shirts! Though there’s little “official” about this very unofficial outing, there are some traditions that have carried on year after year:

11 a.m. // LGBT Youth Fantasyland Entrance behind Cinderella’s Castle

Gay and lesbian youth groups have been known to meet here.

12 p.m. // Pre-parade Cocktail Break Outer Rim Lounge, Contemporary Resort

Sometimes you need a coolingoff cocktail, and since none can be had inside the Magic Kingdom, this is the place to go.

1 p.m. // Lesbian Express Town Square

Show up early at the Main Street Railroad station for a full round-trip view of the park.

1 p.m. // Annual Bear Gathering Country Bear Jamboree

The ursine set traditionally meets at the Frontier Land show..

1 p.m. // Leather Pirates of the Caribbean

A group ride for leather lovers.

3 p.m. // Parade Cinderella’s Castle, Magic Kingdom

It’s as close to a Pride parade as you’ll ever get in a theme park. Though the route will be lined with red shirts, the deepest concentration of LGBTs will be in front of Cinderella’s Castle and on Main Street.

GD2013 WATERMARK’S COMPLETE GUIDE TO ORLANDO’S BIG GAY WEEKEND


Q&A Guiltiest TV pleasure? Scandal. I’m addicted.  Who should play you in your bio-pic? I’ve been told I look like Keanu Reeves. Maybe him. Something about you people are surprised to learn? That I’m not as tall as people think I am in pictures.

JOE GAUTHREAUX

DJs One Mighty Weekend’s Magic Journeys party at Arabian Nights, Friday, May 31, Midnight-8 a.m.

A typical night’s sleep for you lasts how long? I’m a very light sleeper, so if I get a solid five or six hours, then I consider that a win.

Your celebrity crush? Oprah. Who doesn’t love her?

Last book you read? The Perks of Being A Wallflower

Fallback karaoke track? “I Knew You Were Trouble,” by Taylor Swift.

Favorite snack? Pretzels

Favorite ice cream/ frozen yogurt flavor? Strawberry.

Competition reality show, real or imaginary, you’d certainly win? Maybe The Amazing Race because I’ve been all over the world so there’s that advantage.

Favorite theme park attraction, ride or show? I’m a total roller coaster person. Nothing is too scary for me.

Superpower you’d like to have? I’d want to hear conversations across the room; that would satisfy the paranoid side of me.
