Fancy a walk on the wild side? Pig Week is coming to Fort Lauderdale from Nov 26th – Dec 5th, 2021. This should be the largest Pig Week yet as many participants from 2020’s postponed event have been automatically registered for this year’s festivities. 

As its name suggests, this is a queer fetish event for men who enjoy a bit of debauchery and kink.

What’s a “pig”?

Chad Bush, organizer of Pig Week, comments:

“Pig Week Fort Lauderdale got its start after I went to some of the more sex-centric events in Europe and realized that there was nothing like it here in the United States,” he tells GayCities. “The ones that we do have are more genre-specific.  

“I try to remain true to my tagline ‘All men are pigs,’ allowing people from all different segments of our population to have a space to explore their inner pig.

Bush does not use his “all men are pigs” line to presume all men are interested in the kinky life—just the men who want to come to his parties.

“When I started out throwing bear events years ago, I had so many people that said they wanted to come to the parties but did not identify as a bear,” says Bush. “Conversely, when I started throwing leather events I was told by many that they did not come to the parties because they didn’t identify with being a leatherman.  So creating the “pig” genre opened up the demographic to a more inclusive group that embraced absolutely everyone.  Hence, ‘All Men Are Pigs’. All men have fantasies or fetishes, and most have been scared, or have not known how to indulge in them. Pig Week lets all men, whether they are leather men, twinks, jocks, bears, or any other man explore their kinkier side of their sexuality.”

He stresses that Pig Week attendees don’t need a particular fetish to join the fun.

“Men are finding that they are able to learn, participate and experience their fantasies in a safe, no judgment arena. We get a very large number of repeat attendees because of this.”
