Boy George and DJs Evan Evolution and Mark Wedo headline the Gay Games 9 White Party at Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica on August 11. George, formerly of the 1980s pop group Culture Club, is on a nine-city tour promoting his first album in almost 20 years, This is What I Do. The White Party set sail with a dinner cruise aboard the Nautica Queen and ended with a packed sound and light dance extravagance. Hosted by Jacobs Pavilion, Liquid Night Club and Truevents to educate and celebrate the LGBT community, the event also raised funds for the LGBT Legacy Fund created by the Cleveland Foundation and in memory of Twist nightclub owner and LGBT activist John Katsaros, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.
