Attend a White Party
White Parties are parties at which is the norm for party-goers to dress in all or almost all white. White Parties have taken place in Miami, New York City, Chicago, Illinois, Huntsville, Alabama, Fayetteville, Arkansas, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Palm Springs, California; Salt Lake City, Utah; Los Feliz, California; and Montreal, Quebec, although the events are independent of each other.
In the gay community, the White Party is what is known as a circuit party, and it is just one of a hundred such events that take place around the country (and hundreds more around the globe) all year-round. There is also the Black Party in New York, the Black & Blue Festival in Montreal, Mardi Gras in Sydney, the White Party and the Winter Party in Miami, or One Mighty Weekend / GayDayS in Orlando.
