In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Jeffrey Sanker, the premier producer of gay extravaganzas, about his event the White Party 3D Experience that takes place April 6th through the 9th in Palm Springs, California. This year’s headliner is Gammy Winning Superstar Mary J. Blige. White Party Palm Springs is the largest gay dance music festival in North America. This year White Party Palm Springs expands into a whole new dimension as music-lovers, party-goers, DJs and performers from every corner of the globe converge for the ultimate Spring escape set against sun-drenched mountain vistas and spectacular desert skies. Building on his reputation for the best cutting-edge and breakthrough talent that has included performances from Lady Gaga, Ke$ha and Jennifer Lopez, White Party founder and producer Sanker has set his sights on raising the bar even higher. “White Party 2012 is going to be a 3D experience,” said Sanker. “Bigger and bolder LED and visual displays and immense stage and platform structures designed to stretch the limits of your imagination, the only lenses needed are your shades.”
When asked what his personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights, Sanker stated, “As a gay man I believe in civil rights for everybody. It’s kind of a hot topic right now and I personally support HRC (the Human Rights Campaign) in every way I can. You know financially, physically, I attend their dinners and all their functions. I go to all the Prop 8 rallies and gather signatures and sign petitions myself.” Jeffrey lives in California so when asked what his reaction was to the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit finding Prop 8 unconstitutional, he added, “Well I’m so happy they found it unconstitutional because it is. I think the struggle for equal rights for all of us in our community has gone on for so long, for over fifty years. I was excited to finally see this opinion to be stated so eloquently. I was really very pleased.”
