Annual ‘Black Party’ comes to Opera Sunday

Black Party

One of the biggest party weekends on the gay calendar culminates Sunday with the 10th annual “Black Party,” which takes place from 5 p.m. to midnight at Club Opera. More than 3,000 people will be donning their chicest black attire for the event, which is themed “Wicked.”

“It will be everything that wicked encompasses, whether it's wicked scary, wicked sexy, wicked temptation – it will all come to fruition,” says Warren Huntley, an event planner and member of 5FRIENDS4life, the group that hosts the Black Party and its summer counterpart, the White Party.

“People come in everything from very, very skimpy sexy outfits to cocktail dresses and suits, it really just depends on your interpretation of what dressing in all black is,” Huntley says.
