How do you top one of last year’s most successful New Year’s Eve bashes devoted exclusively to a gay clientele?
By making it bigger this year.
That’s the plan by organizers of Evolve Vegas NYE, a first-time event last year that drew about 1,100 guests from six continents.
Mya Reyes, president of the Las Vegas Gay Visitors Bureau, thought attendance could hit about 800 partyers when she organized last year’s event.
After the event, publications with primarily gay readerships gave Evolve Vegas rave reviews. Readers of gay travel magazine OutTraveler voted the event among the top six New Year’s Eve gatherings worldwide and the Two Bad Tourists blog posted the Las Vegas event as the top New Year’s Eve party in North America alongside events in Bangkok in Asia and Madrid in Europe.
