The Wet Party

The White Party in Palm Springs is traditionally one of the hottest weekends on the party calendar. This year, with unexpectedly grey skies, it was still raining men in the desert resort city. Story and photography by Marc Andrews.

EVERY YEAR the Californian desert town of Palm Springs plays host to one of the biggest circuit events on the US gay calendar – the White Party.

Somehow 2016’s White Party weather didn’t get that memo. Gloomy skies, cold gusts of wind and the occasional heavy downpour meant that most attendees had to seriously think twice about stripping down to their skimpywear.
