The pop of a Champagne cork might sound the same no matter where you are doing New Years Eve but not all destinations are created equal. Here are Elsewhere's top three LGBT-friendly picks for celebrating the arrival of 2012:
- New York City -- Time Square is synonymous with New Year's Eve. The first Ball Lowering celebration occurred in 1907, and the tradition is now a universal symbol of welcoming the New Year. Helping to bid farewell to 2011 and ring in 2012 at this year's celebration will be Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Hot Chelle Rae and Lady Gaga.
- Key West -- The Big Apple may have its uber expensive 12' Waterford crystal ball but Key West has Sushi -- and she is priceless. For more than a decade, one of Key West's most famous drag queens Sushi has been decending from the second story of Bourbon Street Pub seated in a giant red shoe.
- Las Vegas -- Your head might explode trying to decide what New Year's event to attend in Sin City. John Legend, Bruno Mars, David Copperfield, Wil.I.Am, Celine Dion and Holly Madison are just a few of the celebrities performing or hosting parties.
