Human Rights Campaign Aims for Blockbuster Ball
A group of gay rights groups led by the Human Rights Campaign is trying to put together a blockbuster inaugural get-together, reports The Sleuth:
The party, being organized by a large coalition of gay-rights groups led by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, promises to feature Cyndi Lauper, Rufus Wainwright, Melissa Etheridge, Thelma Houston and other artists. It will be held at the legendary landmark Mayflower hotel, which, need we even say, is one of the most primo locations in the capital city.
Tickets go on sale next week for the early bird, recession special price of $350, which, besides the entertainment, includes unlimited Obamatinis, equalitinis and as much Chicago- and Hawaiian-themed food as you'd like from the buffet. After Dec. 16, prices rise to $375. But it won't get you in the same ballroom as President-elect Barack Obama, since the more casual gala - attire is "festive or formal" - will be an unofficial one.
And if that's too expensive:
The coalition of sponsors is hosting a much more affordable separate party the same night called "Dance for Equality" at the gay nightclub Town Dancebotique. (Talent and ticket prices will be announced in mid-December, organizers say.)
