What started as a single beach party has transformed into the ALL-NEW multi-day event called "Big Gay Weekend!" Big Gay Weekend highlights the best of Sarasota's LGBTQ+ community by offering our community a Pride Booze Cruise - “Nightclub at Sea,” a Pride Pool Party with an LGBTQ+ Expo, a toga party, and the weekend closes with the infamous Big Gay Beach Party located on Sarasota’s historic North Lido gay beach. Make the most of Big Gay Weekend and stay at the newly remodeled retro Golden Host Resort - the location of the pool party.
