There’s no better time to strut your stuff in San Francisco than during LGBT Pride. So, The Trevor Project decided that for its very-special Pride party held at Twitter HQ, a runway was definitely in order.
About 500 San Franciscans walked down the runway at #ThisIsMe, The Trevor Project’s Pride fundraiser. The guests got to mingle and take selfies with local drag darlings like Donna Sachet, Bebe Sweetbriar, Honey Mahogany and Sister Roma while catching the last remnants of sunlight at the Twitter HQ rooftop.
Singer Misa Malone from Beach Blanket Babylon kicked off a night of performances as Glinda the Good Witch, welcoming the crowd to this colorful version of Oz. Then, Asia SF’s finest dancers and stars of the Transcendent TV show hit the stage with a dazzling pop act. Last but not least, New York’s legendary vogue performer Javier Ninja shut it down with a sickening performance.
Afterwards, the guest got to dance to DJ Christopher B’s house cuts while indulging in “spirited” treat from a Momenti ice cream truck, like Champagne Strawberry Sorbet and Vanilla Vodka Cookies and Cream. The celebration continued at Beatbox nightclub for an after-party featuring a performance from American Idol alum, Frenchie Davis.
#ThisIsMe raised over $30,000 to help The Trevor Project’s vital work running a suicide prevention hotline for LGBT youth. Check out some photos from the event below, taken by Scott Saraceno and courtesy of The San Francisco Ambassadors of The Trevor Project.
