As I’m sure you read in my Tony fashion recap, (or you can now read it here) I’m obsessed with the theater! I love broadway and musicals! I love being an audience member and performing in them, too! Being the self professed theater junkie that I am I am thrilled to share with you an amazing event that showcases the best of broadway while supporting the LGBT community, a community in which I support whole heartedly! This event is called “BROADWAY SINGS FOR PRIDE“! Everyone deserves to be treated equally no matter who they are and who they may choose to love! So, with that said what better way than to spread the word and love than in a room filled with the most electrifying voices of our generation singing their hearts out?! I don’t know! Here’s a little bit more about this glorious evening!!
BROADWAY SINGS FOR PRIDE will celebrate NYC Gay Pride by holding with their fourth annual Gay Pride benefit concert with over 15 Broadway shows represented and countless artists! The special one-night benefit entitled “ANTHEM” will feature songs that embody gay perseverance marked by an array of musical performers from the world of Broadway, pop and beyond! Audiences will join the celebration by hearing some of their favorite New York performers take on pop hits, mashups, and Broadway classics. The charity event will be held at Toshi’s Living Room & Penthouse, the best live music bar NYC and best rooftop bar NYC, at West 26th Street, between Broadway & 6th Ave on Monday, June 30, 2014 at 8pm. The event will benefit Hetrick-Martin Institute and Broadway Sings for Pride. Broadway Sings will also team up with Broadway Serves (http://www.broadwayserves.org) to promote their inspirational volunteer initiatives.
BROADWAY SINGS FOR PRIDE is a non-for-profit organization which brings together Broadway talent and celebrities to promote LGBT equality through song. Launched in June 2011, we have received support from from Carol Channing, Channing Tatum, Nathan Lane, Joy Behar, Wendy Williams and many others!
