Rainbow Lullaby Album Launch Event

By Charlotte Robinson, June 09, 2022

 

The Ali Forney Center & Broadway Records are hosting The Rainbow Lullaby’s album launch at Hush in NYC with a benefit for the Ali Forney Center on Monday June 13th from 6P to 9P. The event will feature LGBTQ Broadway stars performing numbers from the album with all proceeds going to The Ali Forney Center. Sutton Lee Seymour & Brita Filter will emcee with performances by Madge Dietrich (Kinky Boots), Ernie Pruneda (Sister Act), Richie Leone (PROJECT LEONE), Jonathan D. Burke (HARLEM), Jamie Cepero (SMASH) & album creators Ryan Bauer-Walsh & Fred Sauter. Queer activist speaker Jason Rosenberg will also be addressing the crowd to rally the community to fight the over 200 pieces of anti-LGBTQ legislation filed nationally in the last 6 months. Bauer-Walsh stated, “238 anti-LGBTQ+ bills have been filed in less than three months of this year. It is crucial that we create visibility for queer families in the march towards equality as we fight this fascist legislation. This album is the first of its kind despite LGBTQ+ families having existed as long as lullabies. It is time to ensure the protection of LGBTQ+ citizens & families- it is time to rally once again as a community to protect our families!” Hush HK at 348 W 52nd Street in NYC has offered their space for the Rainbow themed benefit & will be donating 10% of the bar tab to The Ali Forney Center. Fred Sauter concluded, “The creation of queer cultural traditions is a part of arts activism & acts of protest through demonstrations of love, empathy & family are a crucial part of our way forward.” I talked to Ryan about the inspiration for creating “The Rainbow Lullaby” album in this exclusive chat.
