The WE THE HEROES BALL returns to CT for a second year! This time we celebrated the turn of the decade! Brush off the dust of the 2010's and usher in the 2020's with some good ol' fashion queer performances! (TBH what's a better way to ring in the new year... AMIRITE?!)
The show was a bigger success than anyone expected at The State House in New Haven, CT, with us FILLING THE ROOM! Also we set a staggering new record of money raised for the New Haven Pride Center of $2,410! Everyone involved, from our sponsors, to the performers, to the audience, was a huge part in setting that new record.
The great lineup of nerdy acts this year was:
- Akira AK
- Kiki Lucia
- Giganta Smalls
- Sienna Rose
- Professor M
- Hazel Tart
For the first time ever! The "We The Heroes Ball" came to Connecticut on November 24th at the Lyric Hall Theater in New Haven! Local LGBT+ performers (as well as NYC's own Hazel Tart of the NYC shows) will descend on New Haven to raise money for the New Haven Pride Center. Performances from the below artists were inspired by various shows, video games, anime, and comic book characters. A packed house from all over the state came to see and support the good we were doing. In the end we raised $1,012 for the NHPC, our mission was a total success! The night's performers included:
Mia E Z'Lay
Robin Fierce (with special guest Hazel Berry)
For the first time ever, merch is available for purchase with the proceeds going towards the total donated to the New Haven Pride Center! This exclusive enamel pin created with Strange Ways of New Haven, CT is available for purchase while supplies last!
One of the most exciting things to come out of the show was our feature in the New Haven Arts Council blog! Check it out to see pics, videos, and a recap of all the geekery that we packed into Lyric Hall Theater.
