Gay Days 2012 - The Official Unofficial Thread ;)

Now that I have some time to sit down and actually write something out... LOL

It's that time of the year. Time to start thinking about NEXT YEAR!


I am going to partially steal from the 2011 thread. Thanks to TagsMissy for maintaining that thread, btw.


MOST of the events are now being posted on our Facebook group. If you're interested in joining, PM myself or jackskellingtonsgirl for the link.

We aren't sure we are going next year - we are considering either a spring trip (for the Epcot Flower and Garden Show) or a fall trip (for the Food and Wine Festival) instead.

Not to worry, there's always the following year! It's always the first weekend in June and the days leading up to it, so no excuse not to plan now for them.

Pics won't be in THIS thread, since this is a planning thread only, but there will be plenty of trip reports posted.

Hi all - glad I found this forum!
Ok, disclaimer- I am not gay ( actually married -straight relationship)
That being said - we have many friends that are, and probably members of every supportive group known (we are both educators, belong to GLSEN, Give a Damn, etc etc.)
If we are in the parks during Gay Days - I know the color worn is red - is there anything that we can wear that basically shows support? I think this is a wonderful event and saw some footage of the parties - (jealous!)
The most I have is a wonderful button I bought at our state fair booth - "straight but not narrow"
So if we are there - hope to see lots of people having a great time! Hugs to all!

We just wore red t-shirts to show our support.

I'm coming for my first time ever

I'll be down for my first ever visit to Gay Days.

Staying at Beach Club from May 28-June 6th. I'm at BLT for the 27th but hoping my wait list for BC opens up.
