Rosie O'Donnell, Lea DeLaria, Kate Clinton, Billie Jean King, Cameron Esposito, and special musical guest BETTY are headlining Levity & Justice for All on June 16th in New York City. Joining them are comics Judy Gold, Rhea Butcher, Marsha Warfield, Karen Williams, Marga Gomez, and Jes Tom. Alison Bechdel, MacArthur Genius winner and author of Fun Home, designed the original poster for the event. The event, hosted by Kate Clinton, is a first-of-its-kind comedy benefit for LPAC, the nation's only lesbian super PAC. Billie Jean King, long-time LPAC supporter, is honorary co-chair, alongside benefit chairs Karen Dixon (Washington, DC), Laura Ricketts (Chicago, IL), Joy Tomchin (New York, NY), and Urvashi Vaid (New York, NY). Levity & Justice for All will provide a stage for the political humor and sharp wit of the comics - at the expense of anti-LGBTQ politicians, including the Republican presidential candidates.

"Watching the news and seeing what some candidates like Donald Trump are saying, you'd think that the entire 2016 election cycle is a bad sitcom," said LPAC Executive Director, Beth Shipp. "The sad truth is that the 2016 is no joke. We face candidates across the country, including those running for president, who have no respect for women or our LGBTQ community. Levity & Justice for All will celebrate the political voices, humor, and activism of LGBTQ women, inspiring and motivating those in attendance to actively participate in the 2016 election."

"Levity & Justice for All" will take place at The Town Hall (123 W 43rd St, New York, NY 10036)

in New York City, on June 16, 2016, amidst LGBT Pride Month and shortly prior to the 2016 national political conventions. Funds raised will be used for political education, organizing, and mobilization efforts to support LPAC endorsed candidates. Tickets are available at www.teamlpac.com/levity.
