“Spring break is a yearly tradition for college students around the world,”  said Ian Whitney, chairman of New Events for the KWBG and one of Gay Spring Break’s organizers, “and Key West has long been rated as the top gay spring  break destination.  This year, gay business leaders decided to take spring break to the next level by featuring a series of events geared towards young gay men and women and their friends that will make this one of the nation’s hottest gay parties.”

Gay Spring Break will feature six weeks of beach parties, dance parties, boat parties, drag shows, men-only and women-only events, meet-and-greet receptions, contests, and several recreational opportunities on the island and
on the surrounding barrier reef.  Organizers expect that Gay Spring Break will have over 150 events geared toward gay and lesbian spring breakers.  Because Gay Spring Break is expected to draw many gay student leaders, there will also be activities that allow for networking and leadership development.
