North Shore Beach Club: “We Are Not to Blame for LGBT Pool Party Cancellation”

This week, Philly LGBT party producer Josh Schonewolf (Songbird, Mr. Everything) announced on Facebook that his weekly LGBT swim party at North Shore Beach Club, Drink or Swim, had been canceled. The post generated a lot of comments from disappointed swimmers and some who called North Shore homophobic.

PHOTOS: Boys of Summer Pool Party at North Shore Beach Club

I’ve got photos of the pool party below.

Schonewolf says the parties will happen every Monday throughout the summer — or until it gets cold — and feature surprise performances (drag queens! songbirds!), a revolving selection of local DJs, and your chance to see your Man Crush Monday and Woman Crush Wednesdays in the skimpiest getup imaginable.
