By: Neal Broverman

Visitors to Las Vegas can sometimes feel like they're in an adult and very straight-oriented playground. Billboards and fliers of busty ladies adorn the city, and there's certainly no shortage of aggressive testosterone marching up and down the never-ending Strip.

But look further and you'll discover that Sin City is gayer than ever — just ask readers of our sister site OutTraveler — with many casinos hosting LGBT-specific events that go beyond the typical gay-friendly lip service. Pool parties, drag bingo, and insane dance spectacles are all there for your enjoyment. And of course, there's always Britney.

"Exposure" at LIGHT nightclub in Mandalay Bay, an LGBT party featuring Cirque du Soleil performers swinging over revelers, debuts January 19. In fitting with the club's name, an elaborate light show is planned, with giant video screens providing even more visual distraction. The gorgeous Cirque performers will be dressed in high fashion attire while "visual performances will be projected on the bodies of performers, creating a symphonic experience that will captivate the show-goers," according to LIGHT's PR folks.
