Jeffrey Sanker has been called the “father of the modern gay event party,” but don’t call him daddy!
“Ha! Ha!” Sanker said, laughing at the little joke. “I like ‘high priest of gay parties’ better! It sounds just a bit more youthful!”
The Miami Herald is credited with anointing Sanker with both of those titles.
Here it is 26 years since Sanker produced his first White Party in Palm Springs, and he insists that he had no clue it would become the premier party for gay men across the globe.
