Time To Celebrate
Welcome to Gay Days Orlando, the theme of our 19th Anniversary
is Sun & Buns so remember your sunscreen. Plan a visit to the
Magic Kingdom on Saturday, June 6th as being a highlight of your
vacation. That is the tradition from when Gay Days started back in
1991 and is a must do event of any Gay Days vacation.

This year in the Places To Play section on pages 17-18, we highlight


some of the other great local attractions and shows to see during
your Gay Days vacation. We know you will love these other
magical places whatever the park.

Gay Days continues to be one of the top vacation events in the


world with 150,000+ attendees traveling from all fifty states and
many foreign countries. A walk through our host hotel reminds you
of WDW ‘s It’s A Small World. This year, we’re proud to have been
voted one of the top 7 events in Orange County and one of the top
100 events in Florida in BizBash Magazine..

Before you head home, be sure to stop by the Gay Days Expo,
enjoy one of the many pool events, or one of the other 50+ events
happening around town during Gay Days. Check out the official
Gay Days calendar in the middle of the magazine.

Most of you will wear one of the official Gay Days red-shirts
(available at Gay Days Central- see pg. 5), but whatever style
you go for make sure this 19th Anniversary is an experience
to remember.

GayDayS.com/Gay Days, Inc. is proud you are part of the


Gay Days growth. Check us out throughout the year for
any of your vacation/cruise needs. Next time you are
planning a visit to Orlando or Florida check out our
sister sites GayOrlando.com and GayFlorida.com.

To our Gay Days 2009 visitors, we’re glad you’re


here! Please vacation responsibly and start making
plans for Gay Days 2010, which is the 20th
anniversary of this event. Our theme for 2010 is
Heroes; the dates are June 1-7, 2010. Remember,
you can book your 2010 hotel room while you’re
here to get the best rooms.

SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 2009 • 1:00PM
This exciting first feature from David Oliveras begins where it ends... in an art gallery,
where Danny has made a promise never to paint his childhood obsession again. Quite
an obsession, indeed. Gorgeous swimmer Carter enjoys being rebellious and open.
His penchant for swimming in the nude doesn’t disappear just because he’s staying in
young Danny’s home. Beautiful sequences and gritty acting make this a film a depress-
ing delight to watch, and the swimming sequences are not to be missed.

BREAKFAST WITH SCOT


SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 2009 • 3:00PM
Eric (Tom Cavanagh) lives for all things hockey. Now in his thirties, he’s managed to turn
his stint as an ex- Toronto Maple Leaf into a full-time gig as commentator for sports TV.
He’s living the dream! He and his partner Sam (Ben Shenkman), a lawyer, live discreetly
on a tree-lined street in Toronto. Enter Scot, budding queen of an 11 year old, who is Eric’s
mirror opposite. Dressed in vibrant colors, his mother’s charm bracelet and with a pen-
chant for musicals and Christmas carols, he’s not quite the ‘boy’ they expected.

IN HER LINE OF FIRE


SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 2009 • 10:00PM*
When the Vice President’s plane goes down near a remote South American island, he
is kidnapped by rebel forces and held for ransom. It is up to his female Secret Service
agent and a press secretary to infiltrate the camp and save him.

MULLIGANS
SUNDAY, JUNE 7, 2009 • 1:00PM
Tyler Davidson invites his college buddy Chase home for the summer holidays and a
secret is revealed that threatens to tear his perfect family apart. When Tyler’s mother,
Stacey discovers her husband Nathan in an unspeakable affair, the Davidson family’s
world begins to collapse. The summer is ripe with adventure, revelations, and betrayal
as this family learns how to laugh, cry and love again.

WERE THE WORLD MINE


SUNDAY, JUNE 7, 2009 • 3:00PM
If High School Musical indulged in flights of homoerotic fancy, it might look some-
thing like Tom Gustafson’s Were the World Mine. But to truly capture the essence of
the writer-director’s spirited debut feature, we turn to an ever more timeless source:
Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When not suffering the wrath of his ho-
mophobic classmates, Timothy withdraws into his imagination, where macho rugby
players morph into dancing fairies decked out in go-go boy attire. Timothy first balks at
acting in the play but eventually embraces the role of Puck and, armed with a magical
pansy, turns nearly the whole town gay - with unexpected implications for his mother,
his two best friends and the hot star rugby player.

Film screenings will be held in the Harrington Ballroom at the Royal Plaza hotel, host hotel of GayDayS.
* In Her Line of Fire will be screened poolside at the Regal Sun Resort.
