Photo Flash: David Mixner's OH HELL NO! Celebrates Opening in Los Angeles

Author, political strategist, civil rights activist and political firebrand David Mixner performed his theatrical tell-all, "OhHell No!," at Los Angeles El Rey Theatre last night (June 11) for LGBTQ Pride Month. Scroll down for photos from the opening night festivities!

The show gives an intimate, first-person account of his headline-grabbing life ranging from advising presidents and prime ministers to being arrested for acts of principled civil disobedience.

Joining David Mixner onstage were acclaimed musicians and performers Chris Bolan, Dave Koz, Rory O'Malley and Emily Swallow.

Proceeds from the performance benefit Point Foundation (Point), the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for LGBTQ students of merit. The Foundation promotes change through scholarship funding, mentorship, leadership development and community service training. Mixner and Point plan to bring "Oh Hell No!" to other American cities in the coming months (information at pointfoundation.org/mixnershow). Point will announce its 2015 Scholarship recipients later in June.
