Christina Bianco Headlines PRIDE Benefit For The Ali Forney Center
Come celebrate PRIDE with Christopher Metzger-Timson's hit show, "The Beltress Power Hour!" We're getting the party started early this month with "The Ladies Who Brunch." Christina Bianco will be serving up impressions of your favorite divas while The Green Room 42 serves up "Build Your Own Bubble" mimosa kits. The classic college drinking game comes to life as NYC's fiercest divas get one minute to belt into the rafters! When the time is up, the divas switch, and we drink!
In honor of WORLD PRIDE 2019, all proceeds are being donated to The Ali Forney Center- the nation's largest and most comprehensive agency dedicated to LGBTQ homeless youths. "Aren't they a gem? Let's all drink to them!"
