A report from Curve Magazine.
CHIC Punta Cana hosts landmark event with top entertainment including DJ Citizen Jane.
While not everywhere in the Caribbean is LGBTQ friendly, and some island nations are less than welcoming to lesbian travelers,some destinations are rolling out rainbow carpet hospitality and we honor them! We are pleased to announce that this September, 16 through 24, resort management company Blue Diamond Resorts will be hosting the inaugural Caribbean Pride Week at CHIC Punta Cana.
To the delight of our community, they’ve locked in Miami’s top LGBT DJ — DJ Citizen Jane, plus Female Delusionist, Miss Conception and New York DJ, Johnny Dynell—all set to perform select nights from September 16-24.
Having played multiple sold-out shows during New York Pride, DJ Citizen Jane—recently featured in Curve—is known globally as an LGBT DJ ambassador.
Miss Conception has sold out shows all over the world and is an international drag sensation known for her live singing, comedy, and startling costumes.
All the fun takes place in the Dominican Republic at Punta Cana’s sexiest and most luxurious all-inclusive resort. The week will consist of fun activities, exclusive excursions, and will set the standard for future Caribbean Pride Weeks.
Jordi Pelfort, Managing Director of CHIC, states: “It’s the perfect time for us to show the global LGBT community we’re standing alongside them, and we want to give everyone a welcoming and inclusive experience.”
Caribbean Pride 2017 is the first of its kind and aims to create a welcoming experience for members of the LGBTQ community, complete with luxurious first-class accommodations, premium drinks and gourmet dining.
CHIC Punta Cana was selected as the venue for the inaugural celebration based on its atmosphere and quality, on par with LGBTQ-friendly destinations such as South Beach and Las Vegas.
