Desert Tea 2011 Photos
It was snowing on the way into Palm Springs this weekend. No joke. White Party weekend and Palm Springs was getting hit with a cold front.
This made all of us nervous about the outdoor parties, especially Desert Tea by the Pool. Last year was an insane amount of fun, but would the boys turn out if the weather turned south?
Never fear, because just as the clock hit noon a Pink song came on and the clouds parted, bringing with it bright rays and sexy boys. There were porn stars aplenty—from Lucky Daniels to one of the Jarics (we can't tell them apart since the divorce)— as well as a mix of guys you can't find anywhere else during this weekend: young twinks mingling with muscle bears, hairy studs in speedos with vicious queens working the dance area like it was their own personal runway. Spirits were high, the food and drink at The Ace Hotel was delicious and potent, and a great time was had by all.
Even the guys who showed up wearing the same bathing suits, which could have resulted in a Dynasty-style cat fight in other circumstances, didn't seem flustered by the coincidence.
Yes, The Roylty Group—Justin David, Rob Dorman, Jeffrey Kurt Thompson, and Pancho Mabante— did a great job. Here's hoping they have some more parties planned for the summer!
The phenomenal Miguel Angel Reyes was on hand, mingling about and taking plenty of photos. He was kind enough to share them with us on Gay.com. Check them out below, then become his friend on Facebook.
