“Raven & Pandora Boxx Headline LOL’s Biggest Show Ever!”
It’s the most highly anticipated event of the season in our community. Stepping Stone’s Living Out Loud is back! Join us Friday, October 14 at the Prado in Balboa Park for The Pink Gala.
As always, there will be great food, fantastic silent, and live auction items to bid on, and a chance to help the life-saving services of Stepping Stone.
This year, however, there is an incredible lineup of entertainment, featuring RuPaul Drag Race All-Stars Raven and Pandora Boxx, along with iconic San Diego performers for a show you don’t want to miss. See the full lineup announcement below.
Raven & Pandora Boxx Headline LOL’s Biggest Show Ever! Living Out Loud is always the event of the season in our community, but this year you will really be blue if you miss The Pink Gala. We have a star-studded lineup featuring two RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars and iconic local performers you know and love.
Glitz Glam, Transformation Artist Serving Gender Bending Raunchy Fierceness Since 1997, will be the MC from beginning to end. Autumn Leilani will be the DJ for the Gala. The super-talented Mariam T will be our auctioneer and Maya Glitterzone will be just about everywhere making sure the party never stops.
Who’s the headliner you ask? Well, the headline is THERE ARE TWO HEADLINERS! We are so excited that both RAVEN and PANDORA BOXX will be performing for us. Raven is famous for her quick wit, fashion sense and stunning makeup, while Pandora Box serves the deadly one-two punch of beauty and comedy. They are guaranteed to WERK the room into a frenzy of delight!
If you only attend one event this fall, The Pink Gala is the one you absolutely don’t want to miss.
