According to local sources and GPhilly magazine the details are sparse, since the newly elected gay mayor, Don Guardian, has not yet made the announcement.

Besides mention of the official “gay beach,” Guardian will also share details on three other events later this summer and fall: Sandblast Weekend (July 18-20), the 2014 Miss’d America Pageant (September 28th) and the Stand Out LGBT Expo (September 26-28.)
