What a weird, weird Pride Month this has been. Yet it’s still hard to believe the Big Rainbow Celebration ends tomorrow. Luckily, the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF) has scheduled an event to send June out on a high note.
Tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m., the organization joins forces with The Dallas Wings to present Rise Together. Hosted by Del Shores (Sordid Lives, Southern Baptist Sissies), the virtual fundraising event features an interactive chat with Shores, prizes, a silent auction, performances by various MetroBall artists and plenty of surprises.
Plus, you can order up a special Pride Merch Box complete with a Rise Together T-shirt in the Pride colors of your choice: Rainbow, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Pansexual, Nonbinary and Philly. The kit includes a MetroBall slap koozie, Pride flag, rainbow string bag, glasses, wristbands, stickers and a light-up rainbow flag pin.
Or you can opt to purchase the T-shirt on its own.
Whatever you purchase or bid on before, after or during the event, all funds benefit the great work of the GDMAF.
And that’s something to be proud of year-round.
