Every year, La Ti Do celebrates LGBTQIA+ and specifically highlights Trans artists during Pride Month in Washington, DC.

Curated and hosted by Don Michael Mendoza and Regie Cabico, La-Ti-Do made its debut to a full house in Washington, DC on January 23, 2012 at The Black Fox Lounge in Dupont Circle. Since then, La-Ti-Do became DC's premiere musical theatre cabaret and spoken word series to serve the artistic community on a weekly basis. On June 9, 2013, the show then opened a touring chapter in New York City and continues to do so on a select basis and made a special appearance at Feinstein's/54 Below.
In 2016, La-Ti-Do became a program of a parent company: Winters Lane Productions under the direction of Founder/Artistic Director Anya Randall Nebel. Currently, the DC chapter remains in Dupont Circle housed at the Bistro Bistro restaurant and the NYC chapter at the Dramatists Guild Fund, Inc.
Past musical performers include Helen Hayes Award nominees and recipients: Priscilla Cuellar, Nicholas Rodriguez, Diana Huey, Nova Y. Payton, Erin Driscoll, Matt Conner, Chris Sizemore, Will Gartshore, and Joshua Morgan alongside international spoken word artists: Gail Danley, Sonya Renee Taylor, Sophia Walker and Vijai Nathan.
