The Lesbian Side of the Winter Party Festival

The Winter Party Festival (WPF) in Miami has an unofficial emblem—the shirtless gay male.

That’s why lesbian, bisexual and transgender women may seem absurdly out of place at the event, lost in a bevy of men without shirts.

However, Her Winter Party 2013, which features women’s events at WPF, directly deals with that entrenched image in their tagline:  “Think Winter Party is all about boys dancing shirtless?  Think again.”

“Whether you want to dance, purchase art, practice your salsa spins, or toast with friends with a mimosa in hand, we have an event for you,” said Marivi Iglesias, Director of Women’s Programming at WPF.

From March 6-11, Winter Party Festival marks its twentieth edition in Miami.  More than 10,500 attendees are expected at the LGBT festival, a six-day celebration that donates much of its proceeds to local nonprofits.
