Gay Days At Disneyland

Gay DaysThe annual “Gay Days” at the Disney theme parks in Anaheim, Calif., will kick off Friday, October 6, with a party at Downtown Disney. The event continues Saturday, October 7, with an unofficial “Gay Day” in the Disneyland theme park and a party that night at the House of Blues featuring Dreamgirls star Jennifer Hudson. Sunday, October 8, will be the unofficial “Gay Day” at Disney’s California Adventure theme park.
“Gay Days at Disneyland is our chance to relive our childhood without all the shitty parts!” said actor and Advocate columnist Alec Mapa, who is cohosting the Saturday night party, called “Kingdom,” with Wilson Cruz. Hudson will perform at Kingdom at 10 p.m., organizers said.
The Trevor Project—a nonprofit organization that runs a 24-hour suicide hot line for queer teens—will sponsor all of the youth activities planned for the weekend, which include on October 7 a scavenger hunt, lunch, and “dinner and movie”—all free for youth 21 and under who sign up at TheTrevorProject.org. The screening will be of the campy flick Psycho Beach Party, and director Bob King will be there to answer questions from the youth after the screening, which will be held in the Gay Days Entertainment Center inside the Disneyland Hotel.
Gay Days Anaheim typically attracts more than 10,000 LGBT park-hoppers to the Disney theme parks, most of them wearing red shirts to be visible among other park guests. Both the Saturday gathering in Disneyland and the Sunday gathering in Disney’s California Adventure are privately organized and not endorsed by the Disney company.
