JORDAN AT GAY SKI WEEK
The Gay Chef gets excited about the fun times at Gay Ski Week, Queenstown – and the pies!
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.
