New LGBT Beach Party At Tropicana Resort Las Vegas

Produced by Charlotte Robinson

In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Fred Harmon, Chief Marketing Officer of The New Tropicana Resort in Las Vegas about Xposed! the LGBT Beach Party that’s happening every Saturday 11A to 6P throughout the summer at the all-new Tropicana Beach Club. This sizzling event is produced in association with LA-based event producer Paul Nicholls who runs a multitude of successful weekly events including the popular Stripper Circus franchise with weekly parties in LA, Vegas and San Diego. Partiers attending Xposed! throughout the season will enjoy festivities such as sun-kissed go-go dancers, live entertainment and the hottest DJs spinning all the latest hits while surrounded by the breathtaking waterfalls, palm trees and luxury daybeds and cabanas of the beach club. We talked to Fred about the resort’s LGBT initiatives and his spin on our LGBT issues.

When asked what his personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights Harmon stated, “I believe that LGBT rights are really just human rights because I’m also part of the LGBT community and pretty passionate about the LGBT movement. I think it’s more about not wanting us to be treated special but just wanting us to be treated with the same respect and privileges as everyone else. I guess you could say my personal commitment is just that it’s very personal. I’m a huge supporter of the efforts for equal treatment of all individuals but especially LGBTQ individuals.” On Las Vegas being a gay destination Harmon added, “I think that there’s a misconception about Las Vegas. I think there was a time in our history that people thought Las Vegas was LGBT-friendly just because of the amount of entertainment that was here. Quite honestly that’s not true. We’ve come a long way. You know I’m excited about Xposed! to be able to bring a mainstream venue to the LGBT community on the strip but it’s sad to me that that’s actually news. We’re in 2014 and we’re still working towards the Las Vegas market embracing the LGBT community and the great thing is we’ve taken a lot of strides. There’s a lot to offer the LGBT community to come out and visit us. I think people who have visited in the past would be pleasantly surprised to know the steps that we’ve taken and how much more welcoming the city has become to the LGBT community.”

The New Tropicana Las Vegas recently went through a $200 million transformation. The property has a new and fresh South Beach vibe and recently unveiled their breathtaking Sky Villa Suites. In addition, the Broadway hit MAMMA MIA! is coming to the Tropicana Theater in May and now with Xposed! these are fabulous reasons to make The New Tropicana Las Vegas your next LGBT destination.

I loved the old Tropicana, but this sound FABULOUS! I'm taken aback at Fred's remark about Las Vegas not embracing the LGBTQ community as LV appears to enjoy and embrace all the colorations and diversity that is the human condition. I thought it would be a frontrunner for equality for all. Bravo to The Tropicana...Fred is a great spokesperson and it was an enlightening interview.
