Last night (“Giving Tuesday”), we came together with our friends at The Ally Coalition to host our second annual Talent Show to benefit New Alternatives and their work in assisting homeless LGBTQ youth. An incredible group of extremely talented people came together to make a spectacular & unforgettable night of musical, comedic, and motivational performances, and we’ve got all the pics to prove it.
