And we are telling you—you’ll want to be going to this special soiree honoring the anniversary of the North Shore Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth (nAGLY). Not only does the awesome organization do great work on behalf of the region’s queer youth, but they’ve brought in a special guest to help celebrate: original “Dreamgirls” star Jennifer Holliday. Earlier this year, the Tony- and Grammy-winning artist pulled out of performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration and cited her LGBT fans for inspiring her to reconsider. She’s clearly working hard to reaffirm her support for the community, and will be joined at this musical benefit by “Glee” star Alex Newell (a North Shore native), New England cabaret legend John O’Neil and noir neo-soul band What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? fronted by queer singer 3rian King.
