Sand Blast the Largest Mid-Atlantic Gay Summer Beach Party

Moves to Atlantic City July 18-20

Sand Blast producer Brad Hurtado announced today he is moving Sand Blast, the largest mid-Atlantic summer gay and lesbian beach party, to Atlantic City, New Jersey Friday, July 18 to Sunday, July 20, 2014.

Sand Blast Atlantic City’s lineup includes Friday’s LOST AT SEA Kickoff Party at the Chelsea Host Hotel to welcome guests, Saturday’s 7-hour SAND BLAST BEACH PARTY with popular DJ Joe Gauthreaux presiding over the dance floor alongside the ocean at the Bungalow Beach Bar. The weekend long event continues with a gay beach volleyball tournament and live stage performance on Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel’s theater followed by DEEP BLUE, an all-night dance party helmed by DJ Phil Romano from Barcelona, Spain.

Sand Blast originated in 2002 when a small group of New York City’s gay and lesbian weekend homeowners in Asbury Park, NJ, decided to create a summer beach weekend so they could invite friends to the once thriving destination, with the goal of increasing its popularity. Twelve years later, Sand Blast has grown into the largest mid-Atlantic summer gay and lesbian beach party. The event’s impact on Asbury Park created a thriving historic downtown, a boardwalk lined with shops, beaches packed with visitors and a vibrant and involved gay and lesbian community of over 600 households & thousands of LGBT visitors.

“The popularity of our weekend of events has caused us to outgrow Asbury Park which has been our beloved home since 2002. Atlantic City with its many hotels, attractions, and party venues was a natural choice, and this move allows us to continue our original mission to introduce our LGBT friends from cities along the east coast to the wonders of the Jersey Shore. Atlantic City’s airport opens the weekend event to an entirely new audience from New England to Florida.” says Hurtado.

Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian said “We in Atlantic City are excited to host Sand Blast this year,” said Mayor Don Guardian. “This is a great opportunity for the LGBT community to enjoy our beautiful City, free beaches and amazing hotels.”

OUT IN AC Present Miss’d America Pageant Jan 21-22

What sounds like some saucy entertainment will unfold in
Atlantic City at Harrah’s Resort and at Boardwalk Hall the weekend
of Jan. 21 and 22.

This will be the fourth consecutive year that Caesars
Entertainment Corp., parent company of the Harrah’s, Bally’s,
Caesars and Showboat casinos, has hosted the gay-friendly “Out in
AC” weekend of partying.

Caesars Entertainment has moved up the timing of “Out in AC”
this year to have it coincide with the annual Miss’d America
Pageant, a campy, drag-queen spoof of the straight-laced Miss
America Pageant that made its home in Atlantic City for 84 years
before sashaying off to Las Vegas in 2005.

“Every year, these uniquely tailored events bring in new guests
ready to experience Atlantic City in a whole new open light,” said
Jennifer Weissman, regional vice president of marketing for Caesars
Entertainment. “‘Out in AC’ weekend is all about diversity, pride
and, of course, having a little fun.”

“I absolutely believe that we’re growing our reputation as a
gay-friendly town,” Weissman said.

Other Atlantic City casinos have also staged gay-themed special
events or opened attractions catering to the LGBT market. Trump Taj
Mahal Casino Resort once held gay bingo nights. More recently,
Resorts Casino Hotel hired the Atlantic City gaming industry’s
first LGBT marketing director and also opened the first gay
nightclub inside a casino.

Out in AC Returns To Atlantic City for Halloween Weekend

Harrah’s Entertainment Atlantic City turns Halloween into HalloQueen this year, hosting OUT in AC, a weekend of LGBT-themed parties and events, October 29th through 31st.   A bevy of gay royalty will be on hand to celebrate the Fall Carnival including “The Queen of All Media” Perez Hilton, Queens of Comedy Margaret Cho and Sandra Bernhard, in addition to Whitney Cummings, Jersey Shore’s

Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Richie Rich and more.

 

The weekend begins Friday night with Perez Hilton’s popular “One Night In” concert series at Showboat’s House of Blues.  Perez Hilton’s past “One Night In” events in London, Toronto and Los Angeles have featured celebrity performances by Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Katy Perry.  Perez promises a pageant to remember at his Jersey show, replete with marquee talent and special surprises to be announced.

 

“I am thrilled and very anxious to be hosting my first-ever ‘One Night In… New Jersey,’” says celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. “I’m looking forward to bringing to Atlantic City some of my favorite musical acts and special surprises, and since its Halloween weekend, some over-the-top costumes! With two hosting gigs at Harrah’s Atlantic City that weekend, I’ll have to have some tricks up my sleeve! Double the pressure! Double the fun! I can’t wait!”

 

 

 

“We look forward to hosting the second annual OUT in AC weekend at Caesars Atlantic City, Harrah’s Resort, Showboat and Bally’s. Atlantic City is an entertainment-driven destination and at Harrah’s Entertainment it is our mission to provide diverse entertainment to be enjoyed by our customers,” said Jennifer Weissman, Regional Vice President of Harrah’s Entertainment.  “OUT in AC is a great example of the unique programming we offer and we’re looking forward to celebrating Halloween weekend in Atlantic City with this great event.”

 

The celebration continues with a charity event at sultry Club Worship at Showboat with DJ Larry Tee spinning for Charity Monster. Proceeds will benefit the GLSEN Hi Tops, a local charity that provides a safe zone for youth facing difficulties at home or school because they are gay. Later on, the party at Atlantic City’s premiere nightlife venue, The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort, will be hosted by everyone’s favorite side-kick, the nugget of all nuggets, Chuy Bravo from Chelsea Lately.

 

Saturday’s festivities kick off early, as famed designer Richie Rich presents a Poolside extravaganza featuring boys in Speedos and DJ Lina on the decks at The Loft at The Pool. Meanwhile, The Pier Shops at Caesars will host Shopping’s Night Out, offering discounts at select luxury brand retailers throughout the day.  At 8pm, Margaret Cho and Sandra Bernhard take the stage for The Queens of Comedy show at Caesars Maximus Theatre. Afterward, celebrity DJ Mia Moretti will spin at the official Queens of Comedy afterparty at Mia Restaurant at Caesars.

 

Immediately following the show will be a cocktail reception at The Pool at Harrah’s Resort again hosted by the notorious Perez Hilton.  Then, the all-night revelry continues as celebrity DJ Tracy Young ignites the dance floor at Showboat’s Club Worship, with a special performance by Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak.  The Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley, will be hosting her version of a night OUT in AC, headlining an all-night fist pumping dance extravaganza at ultra hotpsot, Dusk nightclub at Caesars.

 

Halloween Sunday begins with The Hallo-Queen brunch, an all-you-can-eat buffet-style brunch at Caesars Forum Lounge, featuring legendary drag queen Joey Arias, followed by a Tea Dance at Dusk, where DJ Lina returns to help guests end the weekend right.

 

Tickets to most OUT in AC events will be available for purchase beginning today while remaining ticketed events will be on sale later in the week.  Tickets for all events are available at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-736-1420.  A discounted weekend pass, offering entrance to all events, is also available.
