mermaid cocktail parties
cóctel de sirenas - fiesta de sirenos


Explanation:
https://es.oxforddictionaries.com/translate/english-spanish/...

Siguiendo lo que aporta Taña, aporto un par de ideas...

Ahora que la gramática se va a ver influida por los colectivos LGTB, con todos mis respetos, la RAE debería incluir el género masmenino y el feculino, y los números plugular y sinral.

Digo esto, para que el número no se sienta discriminado por el género... Y mucho menos la númera y la génera.

Espero que cuando menos lo que aporto sirva de ayuda, o por lo menos, de inspiración...

Mis disculpas si "sueno" un poquito sarcástico esta mañana, pero es que estoy sufriendo un fuerte ataque de subtitulitis aguda y compulsiva, con complicaciones de voiceoveritis espasmódica... ;-)

Saludos cordiales

Explanation:
Puede que la imagen del tritón se adapte mejor a una celebración gay porque no se identifica necesariamente con el género femenino como la sirena.
Over time, Triton's class and image came to be associated with a class of mermaid-like creatures, the Tritons (Τρίτωνες), which could be male or female, and usually formed the escort of marine divinities.

What does "mermaid cocktail parties" mean? 1) cocktail parties hosted around the Mermaid pool? or 2) parties hosted by persons dressed as mermaids? I am inclined to think it is the former.
