The series will be hosted by Zach Noe Towers and will feature comics: Jonathan Rowell, Brendan Scannell, Casey Ley, Julian Michael, Iren Tu, Jared Goldstein, Raneir Pollard, Kyle Shire, Jordan Peas, Chris Bryant, Eric Hahn, Daniel Webb, Joe Dosch, Gloria Bigelow, Anthony Desamito, Janine Brito, and A.B. Cassidy.LGBTQ humor, queer comedyTo watch the series you do need to have a subscription to Dekkoo but look for an introductory offer on their homepage for their free trial offer. Learn more here, dekkoo.com.

What to do this week: January 7 – 13

drink, bar, bartender, cocktailsWinter is here but don’t let the cold keep you at home when there are so many events, parties and more. This week I’d like to give a shout out to the Après Ski Winter Mixer on Wednesday (hosted by Out in Southie, OutRyders and DotOUT) at Bastille Kitchen and on a somewhat related note the Sugarloaf Together ski weekend that starts on Thursday to benefit Equality Maine. 

If skiing isn’t your thing perhaps you’d like to show your love and support by attending the Coronation XV: Vintage Hollywood the Golden Age of Glamour which will be a blast or you can join Sergio and me at the Lush Life: Jazz Standards show on Thursday at the Napoleon Room. 

On Sunday I’d like to give the Mass Bears and Cubs Sunday brunch at Trophy Room and the Gay Beer Club Sundays which meets later that evening (both are friendly, social groups that do a lot to dispel Boston’s cold reputation).

2019 North American gay ski week calendar

Each January I write about the various ski weeks and weekends that are organized here in New England and North America for those of you who love to take ski vacations. Below I’ve included a handful of such gay ski celebrations. If you enjoy skiing, I’d also like to use this as an opportunity to give a shout out to OutRyders – New England’s largest gay ski club.

Aspen Gay Ski Week: January 13 – 20, 2019
This week long celebration is the biggest and oldest of its kind starting back in 1977 and having grown significantly over the years.

Whistler Pride & Ski Festival: January 20 – 27, 2019
This annual tradition which started in 1992 offers plenty to do and if you are coming from the US at a nice price break with the favorable exchange rate.

Winter Rendezvous at Stowe, VT: January 23 – 27, 2019
This is New England’s largest (and longest running) gay ski week. This year will mark Winter Rendezvous 35th anniversary. Boston’s  gay ski club, OutRyders helps their members organize logistics if you’re interested in this event.

WOW weekend at Sunday River, ME: February 8 – 10, 2019
The Welcoming Committee has created a mini-takeover of the Sunday River Resort for the past six years, even organizing transportation from Boston to make it as easy / convenient as possible for everyone.

Elevation Utah Gay Ski Week at Park City: February 21 – 24, 2019
While Utah isn’t exactly known as the most gay friendly place in America, this will be the 9th anniversary and continues to grow in popularity.

Elevation Mammoth Gay Ski Week: March 13 – 17, 2019
The Elevation Ski Week brand started here at Mammoth Mountain sixteen years ago and attracts mostly a west coast crowd.

Big Gay Jay Weekend at Jay’s Peak, VT: March 22 – 24, 2019 
This weekend trip to southern Vermont is organized for and by New England’s gay ski club The OutRyders.
