horrible place. Miami deserves a decent sauna. Waht a pity.

It all begins Thanksgiving Week. As Miami recovers from not one but two Madonna MDNA concerts, White Party Week tradition continues to its 28th year fighting HIV and AIDS. The White Party “crown jewel” event explodes on Saturday, November 24th inside the Soho Studio at the Wynwood convention center in Miami’s transformational design district with 2,500 men dressed -- partially at least – dancing in white to DJs Danny Verde and Paulo. Suddenly, the D.J. stops the music, and the curtain on the stage rises to reveal 50 white android male models. A silver-dominatrix-drag queen princess in a 12-foot headdress lashes out at the crowd with long fingers made of lasers. Reset, reboot, recharge and let the White Party begin!
Nearly 12,000 people will converge on Miami Beach for the 28th annual White Party Week. Every November this beach city erupts in a weekend of round-the-clock beach parties, fashion shows, club events, elaborate performances and after-hours celebrations. But not only is The White Party Week seven days of dancing and entertainment, it is also a fundraising event for Care Resource to service LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) in the community with HIV/AIDS support services. South Florida’s nonprofit health organization, Care Resource, takes the funds raised from White Party Week and gives it back to Miami-Dade and Broward in the form of community health services. From medical services, dental care, STD and HIV testing, food bank services and much more, Care Resource plays a vital role in helping Miami-Dade and Broward, two of the hardest hit areas for new HIV infections in the entire country, improve health and well being.
With past performances by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, this year’s White Party will be no exception; well-known 'circuit’ D.J.'s will be spinning at various events all week including Los Angeles’ DJ Paulo, Milan’s DJ Danny Verde and Madonna’s “It Girl” Tracy Young.
“After a busy, crazy and hectic year, we all need times to reset, recharge, and reboot,’’ says one excited supporter. “It's an annual Thanksgiving tradition” and “I love running into friends from all over the world” are all common refrains heard throughout White Party Week.
