UP ALL NIGHT

DNA cover model, Frank Carter is also a jet-setting circuit party go-go dancer. Who better, then, to ask which parties will be the most fun and where to find the hottest boys in 2018.

WINTER PARTY, MIAMI

Some say Ibiza is the party capital but I think it’s Miami. The city has such a chilled vibe. Tourists from all over the world come to people-watch at South Beach (SoBe) and dine at Lincoln Road’s restaurants.

The Winter Party encourages gay men to escape the freezing temperatures elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. They can take in the sun, breathe the fresh Atlantic Ocean air and dance to loud beats. This year’s dates were 28 February to 6 March, so you might need to pencil it in for 2019! The Winter Party donates some of its profit to an LGBT charity every year. The circuit includes a Friday night party, normally at Space – a superclub with three dance floors. The Pool Party is a good excuse to put on tiny swimwear whether you plan to go in the water or not!

Lots of muscle guys work out all year to get ready for the Sunday T-dance on SoBe. The dress code is strictly no shirt and the smallest of shorts. Afterwards, people tend to go crazy on the last Sunday night party, getting dirty on the dancefloor. I had the best time with one of my buddies (and the hottest equipped guys we could find) at that party last year.

The Winter Party attracts the most popular gay DJs from across America, as well as Europe and Australia like Dan Slater, Cindel, Dani Toro, Nina Flowers, Lucas Flamefly, Hansell, Eddie Martinez, Paulo, Danny Verde, and Binomio. My favourite is DJ Kingstone Paris, who remixes popular classics into deep house music like you’ve never heard. Miami itself smells like the rich and famous.Stay at one of the many accommodation options on Collins Avenue to really experience SoBe. When you aren’t partying, take in an exhibition at the Sagamore Hotel (aka the Art Hotel) on Ocean Drive and shop on Lincoln Road. Crunch and Equinox are the popular gyms. Local gay bars include Palace and Twist and if you’re heading to the beach, look for the rainbow flags flying on 12th Street to signal the gay area.

About DNA Magazine

This month’s issue is all about where to find the best gay parties in the world in 2018. We reveal the best places to get your jam on and your rocks off! Our team of roving reporters file stories from Madrid and Barcelona, Malta and Mykonos, Reykjavik, Brighton and London, from Puerto Vallarta to Miami, Palm Springs and Toronto, Koh Samui, Hong Kong and Shibuya. And do we have sexy pics of hot party boys shaking their junk? Of course… including hunky Frank Carter’s Diary Of A Circuit Boy! Wanna know what goes down at Tropical Fruits, the legendary New Year party on the New South Wales central coast? Jack Ladd’s smutty story reveals everything! Wondering what to wear to Sydney’s Mardi Gras? Check out our less-is-more costume guide! Speaking of unusual outfits… we have Aussie comedian Rhys Nicholson in a painted-on bodysuit and wedged into a rubbish bin. The hilarious stand-up tells us all about his fascinating childhood and spills the beans on some fellow comics, including Joel Creasey! UK X-Factor star Peyton launches his first soul album and tells us all about his X-Factor issues! Meanwhile, rock star Phil Jamieson of Grinspoon tells us about his unexpected career swing into musical theatre in Green Day’s American Idiot. We all love the Oscars, but do they love us back? We take a look at when the Academy Awards rewards gay-themed films and gay actors and when they snub us. It’s a great retrospective story that suggests the first gay Hollywood screen kiss may have happened as early as 1928! Let’s talk art. In our feature, Cock And Awe we explore the photographic ethos of Venfield8, which is sexy and thought-provoking. Photographer Stas Vokman shoots former DNA cover model Vladimir Momotov in a beautiful Spanish-inspired story, Take A Bow. Plus, all our usual regular features including music, theatre and book reviews, Month In A Minute, Burnttoast and The Deplorables, and Dear Diva solves your big gay problems! Enjoy!
