There is often too much pressure on us to travel across the country in packed planes to celebrate Thanksgiving with our biological family. The truth is that so many gay people would much rather be with our chosen family (or as Armistead Maupin terms it ‘our logical family‘). It’s even more galling when your parents expect you to slip back into the closet so as not to upset some uptight elderly aunt. Or worse still, the neighbors.
Over the years more and more LGBTQ+ parties have popped up to give us real alternative ways to actually celebrate the Holiday with those we love unconditionally. Not only that, many encourage us to get down and dirty.
Here’s a selection of a few choices on how to open next Weekend including a Women-Only Event and even one in the UK although they are only celebrating the fact that this is the day they parted ways with the US.

CLAW LOS ANGELES 2022
Claw is the leading leather party and includes more than 250 events and exhibitors and hosts parties in several cities across the USA. The Claw Los Angeles gay event has now become a Thanksgiving tradition, returning for another year. There is a packed five-day program (23rd – 27rg Nov) of events that range from Fat Cigar Smoker After Dinner Cigar Party, Afternoon Hercules BDSM Play Party for Men, Strip Bingo and Damn Daddy DILF Tea Dance
What caught our attention was the different versions of Speed Dating they hold: one for BDSM, another for Ass Play.
This is a queer fetish event for men who enjoy a bit of debauchery and kink. Evidently ‘all men are pigs,’ so this allows people from all different segments of our population to have a space to explore their inner pig. All men have fantasies or fetishes, and most have been scared, or have not known how to indulge in them. Pig Week lets all men, whether they are leather men, twinks, jocks, bears, or any other man explore the kinkier side of their sexuality.
WHITE PARTY PV THANKSGIVING is an event started by the late Jeffrey Sanker who was the man behind so many White Parties around the globe. Now that the main Miami White Party is on hold for another year, then the best place for a great queer Thanksgiving in the sun is now Puerto Vallarta,
Here are some of their highlights :
⚡️ Thursday Night Nov 24: DJ Alex Ramos @djalexramos
⚡️ Friday Night Nov 25: DJ Las Bibas (11pm to 4am at Industry) @lasbibasmusic
