Ali Forney Center Drags Event

By Charlotte Robinson, August 22, 2017
Sasha Velour winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 & 30 iconic drag queens & kings will perform at a show benefiting the homeless LGBTQ youths of the Ali Forney Center on September 7th at Highline Ballroom in NYC at 6P. The evening’s goal is to raise $50,000 to support the Ali Forney Center’s (AFC) housing & supportive services for homeless LGBTQ youth. AFC addresses over 1,400 homeless youth each year is the nation’s largest & most comprehensive organization dedicated serving this population. This benefit performance also serves as the official launch of DRAGS, a coffee table book featuring portraits of NYC drag legends photographed by veteran photographer & director Gregory Kramer. Kramer has committed 100% of the proceeds of the book sales to benefit the young people who come to AFC for help. Carl Siciliano, AFC’s Executive Director stated, “I am humbled by the love & care Gregory & every person involved with this very special project has offered us. The young people we see at our shelters & Drop-in Center have experienced hate & rejection from the people who are supposed to love them unconditionally, it means so much to us that so many are lending their time, resources & talent to do something to show them they are valued and loved.” Tickets are available at all levels including Meet & Greet, VIP & General Admission & all ticket levels include an open vodka bar provided by Chopin Vodka.
