Cabaret Corner invited ground-breaking members of the entertainment community of Manhattan and the LGBTQIA+ to join in for a discussion about Pride, what it means to them, and how Pride and their artistry inform their work and their lives.

For this special panel of artists who lead, BWW Cabaret editor Stephen Mosher invited Trans activist and creator of the blistering and brilliant show MANIFEST PUSSY, Shakina Nayfack, Middle Eastern badass Shani Hadjian, who works as actor, singer, and photographer, Fairy Godfairy Benjamin Rauhala of the phenomenon The Broadway Princess Party, Mexican role model and leading man Mauricio Martinez, and Broadway star/proud papa Raymond J. Lee.

Together, this panel of unique talents and valuable voices share ideas and philosophies about the fight for justice and the future of cabaret, a conversation that is definitely in keeping with the mission statement of Cabaret Corner, "a series devoted to having meaningful conversations with change-making cabaret artists."
