“This was our most successful GlamHer to date. We are simply overwhelmed by the generosity of this community. The funds raised will go directly to programs that support survivors of domestic violence, including LGBTQ specific services and support groups and culturally responsive services for survivors in Black/African American/African communities through the Healing Roots Program,” said Jackie Yerby, Executive Director.

Drag legend, Poison Waters, guided the electric crowd through an entertaining evening with performances and her entourage of Queens. Organizers raised over $220,000 for survivors of domestic violence at the May 22nd event . The most spirited live auction item was a Drag Queen Makeover by Poison Waters and the rare chance to perform in Super!Drag at the Darcelle XV Showplace alongside legendary Queen Darcelle.
