All proceeds for this event will got to the innocent victims and their families of the Orlando shootings.
A powerhouse of talent is coming to Rich’s on Friday to benefit the victims of the Pulse nightclub tragedy.
Cast members of drag shows DIVAS, Lips, Sinful Dames and much more are taking the stage in one of the biggest collections of talent ever to descend upon the popular nightclub.
Producer Robert Rodriguez says that this benefit is not only meant to take your mind off of the recent tragedy in Orlando, but also a time to fight against homophobia and bigotry.
“The Attack in Orlando was not just an attack on them but an attack on all of us, all of the LGBTQ Community,” he said.
Rodriguez says that there are people like the gunman who will try and dim the lights of the LGBTQ, but that beam will shine even brighter now, “Our fight for our rights is not over by far.”
The long list of performers at the “We Are Orlando” event will include Kickxy Vixen-Styles, Jasmine Masters, Landa Plenty, Vanity Jones, Erica Foxx, and many more.
Rodriguez says this night of unity and support will strengthen the human spirit, giving all proceeds to the innocent Orlando victims and their families.
“This fundraiser shows how strong our community is,” he said. “We are strong, loud, and proud, and we won’t let anyone silence us, or push us back into the closet, not now, not ever!”
Special guests will include Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and kickball team Big Ballers.
The “We Are Orlando” fundraiser is on Friday, June 17, doors open at 7 pm at Rich’s nightclub. Show starts promptly at 8 pm.
Rich’s is located at 1051 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92103. (619) 295-2195
