For several years, Lambda Legal has celebrated “the Lawrence Dinner,” named after the Lawrence v. Texas case that overturned gay sodomy laws. But this year, the political climate warranted a new name: The White Party.

With the victory (fingers crossed) in California declaring Prop 8 unconstitutional, what better way to celebrate in the heat of a Texas summer than with our very own White Party Gala, which takes place Saturday night at the W Victory Park Hotel.

The evening kicks off with a dinner (sorry — it’s already sold out) then turns into a dance party. The $30 cover includes all the champagne, wine and Absolut Vodka drinks you want (you’ve gotta pay for anything else) while  L.A. circuit DJ Casey Alva spins from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. Proceeds benefit Lambda Legal. 

And because it’s a White Party, attendees are asked to show up in the classiest white duds they can — this isn’t Palm Springs, after all.
