The Purple Party Returns to Dallas in May

Published Date Author: , April 28th, 2014

Dallas Purple PartyOne man’s dream of a party that would bring Dallas’ gay community together has blossomed into the Purple Party, one of the Southeast’s major dance events – and one of the largest non-profit, all-volunteer dance fundraisers in the entire country. Since 2001, the Purple Foundation has taken over the Big D for a spring danceathon that brings revelers from all over the country. This is Texas, y’all, so everything is bigger here: The parties, the venues and the smiles on the dance floor. Dallasites are proud of their big event, and they relish being able to show off their out-and-proud gay community.

“It’s not like any of the other big parties you go to,” foundation president Blake Baker told noiZe. “Everybody has a very down-home, very welcoming feeling. We really enjoy all of the people who come from different parts of the country!”

The fun begins on Friday night, May 9, when Ignite sets the town on fire, with one of the most popular DJs on the Circuit. Taking place in one of Dallas’ biggest megaclubs, Ignite has grown exponentially from a cocktail party into a Texas-sized dance party, with more than 1,500 attendees. All those (need we say it?) big men dancing to a state-of-the-art sound and light system need a lot of room – and a lot of time. This party starts early and goes late into the wee hours, so rest up before you head for the man-corral to lasso some stallion of your own.
