Kitty Glitter and fresh snow for Gay Ski Week

Mon 18 Aug 2008 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

The international guest DJs are confirmed, and fresh snow has been dumped on Queenstown – with much more expected in coming days – so it's all looking good for Gay Ski Week 2008, says organiser Mike Sanford. Snow angel: Kitty Glitter "The conditions are fantastic for skiing with fresh snow being dumped over the last few days, giving Coronet Peak and the Remarkables more snow than they know what to do with," Sanford tells As well as overseas people who come from Australia, the UK and America, there are a lot more New Zealanders signed up for 2008's Gay Ski Week, which begins with a Welcome Party on Saturday 30 August, Sanford reveals. "We have quite a few people just coming for the closing weekend for the White Out Party too." Two DJ guests from Sydney for the White Out Party on Friday 5 September have been confirmed – Mardi Gras and Hero disc-spinner Dan Murphy returns, plus Mardi Gras and Sleaze Ball drag DJ Kitty Glitter will make her first appearance in New Zealand. The White Out Party will be held in Bezu bar, located next to the waterfall on Brecon Street. "We have a late liquor license so we can party till daylight, plus we are shipping lasers and lighting in from Sydney – so White Out will bring the week to a close with a bang," says Sanford. Bezu's capacity is a little smaller than previous years, so secure your tickets to the party in advance, he advises. Kitty Glitter is also hosting this year's QUEENStown's Got Talent karokee contest at Sky City Casino on Thursday 4 September. Further details and bookings for 2008's Gay Ski Week are available on the event's official website, linked below.
