DALLAS, TX - StraightOut Media & Marketing, producer of Telluride Gay Ski Week (TGSW), confirmed today that rumors are true that it is now the biggest gay ski week in America.

It's all in celebration of the ten year anniversary of Telluride Gay Ski Week, which will take place next year from Friday, February 22, 2013 to Sunday, March 3, 2013.

The extended week is just the tip of the ice berg of what is planned for next year's event. TGSW is pleased to announce that nationally renowned, drag comedian Miss Coco Peru will be appearing for special one-night engagement on Tuesday, February 26 as part of gay ski week.
