White Party Palm Springs took over the California desert again this year with lots of hot trade under the scorching desert sun. Luckily for us, Hornet contributing photographer WilsonModels was there all weekend to capture the goods.
Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party Palm Springs 2017 brought the desert valley and revelers innovative new parties all weekend long. Tens of thousands of the hottest men from around the world took over the entire city for the world’s premier gay dance festival — with three days of unforgettable parties.
Saturday’s main event, White Party Dress Whites, was an eight-hour military-themed party with jaw-dropping, state-of-the-art staging, music, lighting and effects. Headlining were DJs Suri, Dan Slater and DJ Aron.

“I think the circuit world has evolved into such a phenomenon that there is literally something for everyone,” Jeffery Sanker told The Hufifngton Post. “There are some amazing groups out there doing some amazing things, and I am thrilled in the direction and passion that goes into every production. What I think sets White Party apart from some of the other groups is that I have always held on to my initial mission: one that is to not only throw a great party, but to also make it all inclusive. I want our guests to feel free to be themselves, and for them to explore a side of themselves that they may never have had the opportunity to do before.”
Sanker continues, “We live in a climate that is ever-changing, but I know that many of our guests come from places where being gay is still not accepted.”
“I want them to understand that I accept them, we accept them, and the city of Palm Springs accepts them with open arms. It is OK to be yourself and let loose. Friendships and bonds are formed that last a lifetime, memories are made and stars are born. I pride myself on surprising guests year after year with new and innovative ways of doing this.”
