The fifth annual pride kick-off party Divas Take the Hill just a little over a week away, and our VIP seats are already sold out (updated just added the front row seats). It seems the guests can’t resist getting as close as possible to our stellar lineup of performers, including burlesque star and fashionista Jamie Von Stratton, Co-Hosts DonnaTella Howe and Miss Kitty Baby, and DJ Tony Burns. You won’t see such a full array of drag kings and queens, burlesque and go-go boys in one place anywhere else all month, and all of these entertainers are doing it for a great cause; all of the ticket and booze proceeds benefit the most vulnerable part of your GLBTQ community—at-risk youth and young adults.
We may have gay marriage in Washington State, but kids are still being forced from their homes for being gay. Local nonprofit PSKS (Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets) has created a new shelter program for youth and young adults, and Divas Take the Hill is proud to partner with PSKS to help fund this vital service.
Tickets are available online: $10 students, $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Ages 18+.

Why You Are Going:
Pride is a celebration of love and community. It is not the time to forget those who have been shunned and hurt by bigotry, but to remember them and support them, and this is one way to make a big difference in the lives of truly vulnerable, often invisible members of our community with even small donations. Don’t miss the fun and the opportunity to help youth in need.
