World’s First Gay Island …Sort Of

Heading out on a gay cruise was already a bit yesterday when Aussie company AllGayCruises started up earlier this year, but now they’ve taken things to the next level. The company’s now creating Australia’s first gay island.

Strictly speaking, the island already exists–it’s Lindeman Island off the Queensland coast–and it will only be gay for a week. But it sounds like it’ll be a particularly colorful event. For six days immediately following the Sydney Mardi Gras in March 2008 (post Mardi Gras March 4- 9), AllGayCruises has basically rented out the whole of Lindeman Island for a massive gay party. –  690 hectares of World Heritage National Parkland, off the Great Barrier Reef!

Seven big dance parties, a swimwear model contest, comedy nights and even the Gaylimpics will make sure that the fun really doesn’t stop on Lindeman. You can already book accommodation, meal and party packages starting at A$1,299 per person ($1,150). Btw, the whole event is called Shipwrecked!, which we hope is not a bad sign of things to come.

“This special week of an All Gay, all inclusive Tropical Island resort for 6 days & 5 nights is designed to create the perfect tropical Island holiday in a welcoming gay & lesbian environment. Get ready for a week filled with world-class sports, endless activities, and exciting entertainment. Whether it’s water sports, bushwalking, or sipping cocktails by the pool, we’ve got it all!”
