This fundraiser is going toward the "Queens United/ Reinas Unidas" benefit show for Puerto Rico.
Thanks to Flip Phone MSP the show will be held on November 6th 2017 in Minneapolis, venue to be announced soon. The show will include a super star cast of drag queens.
Confirmed Queens who will be in attendance include:
Phi Phi O'hara, Chad Michaels, Trinity Taylor, Naysha Lopez, Ongina, Mariah Paris Balenciaga, Acid Betty, Jiggly Caliente, Ginger Minj, Pandora Boxx, Cynthia Lee Fontaine, Mystique Summers, Madame LeQueer and many more on the way!
A lot of the queens are working hard to rearrange their schedules to be available. (Lineup subject to change)
All proceeds from Show tickets, Meet and Greets, and merchandise sales will go to the Somos Una Voz relief initiative. Somos Una Voz is a relief Initiative started by Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Somos Una Voz is rushing food, shelter, medicine, power, and communications to those in need from the effects of recent natural disasters in Puerto Rico.
As you may know Puerto Rico is in a humanitarian crisis and is not getting the support it needs. A few facts about what is going on:
- 80% of Puerto Rico's agriculture is destroyed.
- 18 have lost their lives and that number is expected to rise.
- 97% of the island is without electricity.
- 44% of the people do not have drinkable water.
This is a time to show Puerto Rico and they World that we see them and we want to help! When one "leader" can't/won't step up to the plate to help people in need, WE CAN and WE WILL. I (Phi Phi O'Hara) started this from a single tweet and it has already been such an amazing and overwhelmingly positive response, we as a world and especially as a community are going to be able to come together and to something unlike anything before and make a HUGE difference!
Flip Phone MSP is helping so much by contacting First Avenue for venue, the Queens are donating their time and forgoing all booking fees plus merchandise. We can all do a small part to make a big difference. Any and all donation are appreciated! If you want to donate beyond monetary or think you can help in any other way please contact me directly at [email protected]
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
