Saddle up friends! The Gay Polo League’s annual tournament is happening this weekend. The event is making its grand socially distant comeback this year in Palm Beach.

With changes made to ensure Covid-19 safety is considered including socially distance social events and mask requirements, the event will feature a weekend of fun with plenty of polo for all. On Friday, the Gay Polo League, a member of the Sports Diversity Council, kicks off the “A MASK-querade” party which will include dinner, drinks and the world famous Randy Roberts providing entertainment. Robert’s show will include tributes to legendary performers including Cher, Bette Midler, Joan Crawford, Mae West, Carol Channing, Ann Miller and Phyllis Diller. The MASK-querade party will also raise funds for SAGE USA which provides advocacy and support for LGBTQ+ elders. Saturday, April 27th the Polo tournament kicks off! General admission tickets are available and on Sunday, April 7th the event concludes with a fabulous Sunday brunch.

The Gay Polo League definitely knows how to host a party and is looking forward to seeing you this weekend! Find more information at https://gaypolo.com/#event
