XYZ PRESENTS: 92NY PRIDE EVENT: YOU’RE THAT BITCH & OTHER CUTE LESSONS ABOUT BEING UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOURSELF - BRETMAN ROCK IN CONVERSATION 

Wed, June 21, 7:30 pm ET, from $15

YOU’RE THAT BITCH & Other Cute Lessons About Being Unapologetically Yourself, (announced exclusively by Cosmopolitan ) where he serves up an appropriately riotous yet profoundly earnest and personal memoir. Throughout the book, he does not hold back in exploring his upbringing, mental health, race and colorism, and his burgeoning career in Hollywood and the influencer industry, composing a much deeper portrait of the Gen Z trailblazer.  From his childhood in the Philippines watching his grandmother put on make-up to his high school years in Hawaii and beyond, Bretman has proudly owned his identity as an openly gay Filipino immigrant with a fabulous, genderbending sense of style.  As he welcomes fans into his world with unfiltered honesty, he shares his singular reality, recalling how not long ago he went from living under one roof with 25 family members to balancing a rise to fame while still trying to make honor roll.  Many revelations are deliciously Bretman—like losing his virginity at Disneyland—but the essays are also filled with the pain and pathos of growing up a queer POC in America.  As Asian Americans and Asian immigrants are increasingly facing hate and violence, Bretman is passionate about creating more positive visibility and representation, especially for brown Asians, in entertainment and the media today.

Thu, June 22, 7:30 pm ET, from $20

Join world renowned drag queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Sasha Velour with New York Times-bestselling author and astrologer Chani Nicholas on fashioning identity in the 21st century — and Velour’s brilliant new illustrated manifesto of drag, The Big Reveal . What do drag and astrology have in common? Each provides a lens through which we can better understand our gifts, contributions, desires, and even our personal histories. Hear Velour and Nicholas discuss this beautiful confluence — exploring how gender fluidity and queerness can open our understanding of ourselves, the ways in which we can intentionally forge our own identities, and how we can radically accept the parts of ourselves that are written in the stars.

CABARET CONVERSATIONS: Steve Ross 

Mon, June 26, 7 pm ET, from $20  

Award-winning cabaret performer and member of the 92NY School of Music Faculty Michael Kirk Lane curates a series of conversations about the art form of cabaret in New York City. Welcoming performers, directors, and journalists, these conversations will delve into the history and current state of this unique performance style. Each conversation will also include a Q&A session for the participants. In this edition, Michael talks with Steve Ross, a fixture of the cabaret community in Manhattan for over forty years. He was born “forty-five minutes from Broadway” in New Rochelle, NY, and was raised in Washington, DC with an opera-loving father and a mother who played on the piano the songs of Gershwin, Porter and Irving Berlin. His first major job in New York was as a successful singer/pianist at the now famous piano bar Ted Hook’s Backstage. In 1981 he re-opened the legendary Oak Room at Manhattan’s famed Hotel Algonquin where he held forth, off and on, for more than fifteen years. He has appeared on Broadway in Noel Coward’s Present Laughter and off-Broadway in his tribute to Fred Astaire entitled I Won’t Dance . Internationally, he has performed in London, Paris, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Melbourne and Sydney as well as cabarets and theatres across America and on the high seas. He’s hosted programs on the BBC and American public radio and was on the lecture/performance roster at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for eight years. His last show at the sadly departed Oak Room at the Hotel Algonquin in New York City, Puttin’ on the Ritz – the Songs of Fred Astaire, prompted Stephen Holden of the New York Times to describe Steve as “the personification of the bygone dream world that his music summons.” He continues to tour and has presented, in the last few years, many well-attended shows at Birdland Jazz Club in Manhattan. He enjoys coaching and teaching the International Songbook.
