    Rachel Wenman’s LGBT Awards

    Editor’s note: Las Vegas native Rachel Wenman is an established nightlife-industry influencer. The senior manager of brand marketing for 9Group at the Palms is also an asset to the Las Vegas LGBT community. At the forefront of the city’s gay and lesbian club scene, Wenman introduced the lesbian-focused monthly event Down at Ghostbar, and continues to concentrate on her philanthropic efforts on St. Baldrick’s Foundation and on Cabanas for a Cause Mondays every week during the summer at the Palms.

    It’s a Girl Thing

    Before Las Vegas native Lisa Pittman earned her dual titles as “Best Gay DJ” and best promoter of lesbian parties (Vegas Seven’s Nightlife issue, Dec. 22, 2010), before she spun at nearly every major gay event or held residencies with Tao Group and at the Palms, the staunch advocate was volunteering at Pride Week and dipping her feet into Vegas’ LGBT scene. In the years since, Pittman has fully immersed herself in both the gay and mainstream nightlife scenes. And her cred is actually about to get bigger.

    By Xania V. Woodman

    There is no doubt about it—this one’s for the ladies. On the heels of Vegas’ LGBT Pride festival’s rescheduling from May to September, a new homegrown event will bring thousands of women to Rumor resort for the inaugural Shedonism party weekend, Sept. 15-19. “Generally the Pride [event] season is in the summer—June, July or August,” says Shedonism’s co-creator Lisa Pittman. “But September in Vegas is perfect.” Perfect for four days and nights of parties for ladies enjoying Rumor’s 150 rooms and resort amenities.
