I just finished a walkthrough of the event space for The Purple Ball: from the Hate State to the Great State, and I've got to say - I'm so excited for Wednesday night.
In addition to celebrating our LGBTQ history, we have several musical and special guest appearances that you won't want to miss.
Musical Guest Performances:
♦ Melissa Etheridge, an Academy Award and Oscar Award winning singer-songwriter and gay rights activist
♦ Jake Shears, frontman for the band Scissor Sisters
♦ Norbeto "Beto" Mojardin
♦ Denver Gay Men's Chorus
♦ Governor Jared Polis and the First Gentleman Marlon Reis
♦ The Honorable Barney Frank, the first gay member of Congress to come out voluntarily
♦ David Mullins and Charlie Craig, the plaintiffs from the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission Supreme Court case
Tickets start at $50 for general admission, which will get you access to all the musical guest performances. Looking for something more? Join the Honorable Barney Frank for the Champagne Celebration or Melissa Etheridge for the Rainbow Reception.
