JOR­DAN AT GAY SKI WEEK

The Gay Chef gets ex­cited about the fun times at Gay Ski Week, Queenstown – and the pies!

DNA Magazine - - CONTENT #209 -

THIS ISN’T some­thing I say of­ten, but… Gay Ski Week Queenstown was the best week of my life. And be­lieve me, the last few years have been a whirl­wind of in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ences since my beau­ti­ful Mama and I en­tered My

Kitchen Rules, but noth­ing has come close to the bril­liance of GSWQT and here’s why…

1. IT’S LIKE YEAR 10 CAMP BUT FOR GAY ADULTS

You bond with so many peo­ple. It has night­time par­ties that you can cover your­self in glit­ter for, and count­less day­time events be­yond just ski­ing. If you go, I prom­ise you will leave with count­less new friends.

2. IF QUEENSTOWN WAS A GIRL, I’D TURN STRAIGHT

Queenstown, lit­er­ally, has it all. The most pic­turesque views, ski­ing, jet boat­ing, hik­ing, shop­ping, winer­ies for days, friendly lo­cals and more I didn’t even get to ex­plore. I know it’s called “Gay Ski Week QT” but if you’re like me you’ll find plenty of other things to do… #MulledWine

3. THE COM­MU­NITY FAC­TOR

Queenstown is un­be­liev­ably LGBTI friendly and the whole town gets be­hind the fes­ti­val. Ev­ery ma­jor shop in the town chucks their sup­port be­hind the lo­cal les­bians, Sally and Mandy, who run the event; they even have an app called Rain­bow Pages that lets you know all the gay friendly venues to ex­plore.

4. MY MAMA IS QUEEN

Gay Ski Week is in­clu­sive and at­tracts peo­ple of all ages, gen­ders, and back­grounds for this one week. My Mama at­tended ev­ery event (be­cause she is a to­tal queen and knows how to slay) and out-stayed ev­ery ho­mo­sex­ual there. My point: ev­ery­one is wel­come at GSWQT.

5. THE PIES!!!

They’re so good I al­most made this my first point. The pies at the Ferg­burger bak­ery in the mid­dle of Queenstown are on my Top 5 Food Ex­pe­ri­ences list! I’m sure they could’ve won my sea­son of MKR. Af­ter con­sum­ing six­teen in six days (usu­ally drunk), my only re­gret was not pack­ing a few more in. I’m hon­estly count­ing down the days un­til we are re­united.

TAKE YOUR MAMA OUT JOR­DAN BRUNO AND MUM ANNA AT GSWQT, MEET­ING LO­CALS AND HANG­ING WITH THE BOYS.
