PHOTOS: Newest Gay Pool Party Hits Vegas
By OUTTraveler Editors
Muscle boys, drag queens, hipsters, and lesbians all filed into the pool at The New Tropicana Las Vegas Resort and Casino on Saturday to cut the ribbon on Xposed!, Vegas’s first Saturday pool party for LGBTs (there’s already a gay pool party on Sundays at the Luxor resort and casino).
Even with with the sun sometimes peeking behind the clouds, the event’s turnout was impressive, with RuPaul’s Drag Race stars like Milk and Coco Montrese popping in, as well as one-time Andrew Christian model Colby Melvin. Lots of day drinking happened around the impeccable white pool and cabanas; thankfully the crowd was flirty and friendly, not snooty or snappy. Besides the swimming, posing, and drinking, a sand volleyball court lured the athletic types. Xposed! now happens every Saturday through the summer, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Tropicana beach club. The Tropicana, fresh off a renovation that makes it feel like an upscale Palm Beach resort, was filled with gay men, lesbians, and plenty of straight folks all living in harmony (spotted: a pocket gay in sparkly Uggs playing craps with a bunch of “bro” types).
