The evening is raising funds for the Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest organization working on behalf of runaway and homeless LGBTQ youth; the AFC had a vital drop-in center destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in late October.

The night kicks off with a cocktail party from 7-8 PM, where photographer Victor Haim's art will be showcased and sold. Fifty percent of the proceeds will go to the AFC, on top of all proceeds from ticket sales.

Acclaimed comedy duo The Haus of Mimosa hosts the concert, which features the talents of Natalie Hall, Condola Rashad, Ari Shapiro, Thomas Lauderdale, Olivia Vantuno, Santino Fontana, Ryann Redmond, Ariana DeBose, Gregory Haney, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Donna Vivino, Andy Mientus, Max Von Essen, Ali Stroker, Randy Harrison and Christina DeCicco.

XL Nightclub is located at 512 W. 42nd St. Tickets are available by clicking here.
