Kristen Bell, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Our Lady J to headline United FORlando Benefit Concert
If I wasn’t already committed to Outfest, there’s no way I would miss this event.
It’s United FORlando, an evening concert and conversation on Saturday (July 16) in memory and support of the victims of the recent tragedy at Pulse nightclub on Orlando.
The event is presented by the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and the Los Angeles LGBT Center and will include a sing- along performance of Broadway For Orlando’s What the World Needs Now is Love.
Special guests leading the sing-along include actress Kristen Bell (Frozen), actress Marissa Jaret Winokur (Hairspray) and singer/musician Our Lady J.
The evening concert begins at 8:00 p.m. in the Bram Goldsmith Theater at The Wallis and includes special musical performances by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the cast of the acclaimed play Hit The Wall by Ike Holter.
Actor, writer and director Tajamika Paxton will join Kate Kendell of the National Center for Lesbian Rights and Darrel Cummings of the Los Angeles LGBT Center for the conversation “After Orlando: Reflections and Where We Go From Here,” moderated by actor and activist Wilson Cruz.
Single tickets are now available for purchase for $25 – $45 with net proceeds from the concert benefiting the GLBT Community Center of Central Florida (The Center). Any additional donations secured will also be donated in their entirety to The GLBT Community Center of Central Florida.
