Ninth Annual Unofficial GAY DAYS AT DISNEYLAND
Announces Line-Up for This Year’s Event
at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.
AMERICAN IDOL’S JENNIFER HUDSON TO PERFORM
DJs RAY RHODES AND KIMBERLY S. TO SPIN, AND MUCH MORE ANNOUNCED FOR THE ANNUAL HAPPENING
Following last year's successful event which attracted nearly 30,000 gays and lesbians from California and all over the country, the Gay Days at Disneyland this year will be held Friday, October 6—Sunday, October 8.
Modeled after the gay days at Walt Disney World in Orlando, the Disneyland event is a "mix-in" with straight park-goers. Gays and lesbians are encouraged to wear red shirts to identify one another and show strong numbers. Official T-shirts are available at the official Gay Day at Disneyland Web site: www.GayDaysAnaheim.com.
Both days in the park will have gathering times for specific groups including gay youth (sponsored by The Trevor Project), families, women, singles, and, of course, bears. There will be scavenger hunts and a group photo inside the park. Schedules will be available at the Web site.
The weekend opens Friday, October 6 with Wonderland, a dance party with DJ Ray Rhodes (Tiger Heat, PopPlanet, KBIG 104.), hosted by Los Angeles drag diva Momma. Will Wikle (Big Brother, Logo’s Round Trip Ticket) and Honey Labrador (April’s Showers) will host the VIP room. The event, which benefits The Trevor Project, runs from 9:30pm–1am at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen located in Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort. Tickets are $15 at the door.
Saturday, October 7 will be Gay Day at Disneyland which culminates with KINGDOM, the weekend’s signature dance party with music from reknown DJ Kimberly S. American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson, star of the upcoming film of the musical Dreamgirls, will be performing. The event will be held at the House of Blues Anaheim in Downtown Disney from 9pm–1:30am. Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the door.
Sunday, October 8 will be Gay Day at Disney's California Adventure.
Discounted hotel rooms and park tickets are currently offered at www.GayDaysAnaheim.com.
