The event helps commemorate Judy’s 100th Birthday & the 20th Anniversary of The Ali Forney Center. Justin Elizabeth Sayre stated, “Ten years is a milestone & lining up with Judy’s one hundredth seems like a kind of magic. It’s been an honor to present and be a part of this show for so long & to create a community around it, to work with so many wonderful performers & to celebrate Judy. But more so than this, it’s an honor to continually commit to queer kids. Being in a small way part of the work of the Ali Forney Center is the honor of a lifetime.” The event will feature performances by Tony winner Frances Ruffelle, Grammy winner Nathan Lee Graham, Grammy winner & Tony nominee Kathryn Gallagher, Lortel winner Bonnie Milligan, jazz vocalist Hilary Kole & singer/songwriter Eleri Ward with more to be announced.
