Once a year the New York LGBT community comes together for a unique gala fund raiser--one that rises above all others for over-the-top glamour and fun. That event is The Imperial Court of New York’s Night of a Thousand Gowns, a black tie dinner dance and coronation ball. This year, in our twenty-eighth outing, the beneficiaries will be Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund and God’s Love We Deliver. Join us and celebrate the Reign of Emperor XXII Wen-D Bouvier Pinkhouse & Empress XXVII Gracie Steeles.
At Midnight the heirs to the throne, Emperor-Elect Tony Monteleone & Imperial Crown Princess Royale Twinkle Montgomery are crowned!
