I'm honored to be producing and hosting my fourth annual suicide prevention fundraiser, «The Pursuit of Happiness,» again at Elysium Austin.
All proceeds are donated to the Trevor Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources to LGBTQ+ teens in crisis, including a 24/7 Crisis hotline.
I produce this event in memory of my little brother Travis, who lost his battle with mental illness May 2, 2013. He was full of love & life, and «The Pursuit of Happiness» celebrates life, as well as memorializes those we've lost in this way.
We have a fantastic show planned with acts that celebrate life and individuality, and acts that will also pull at your heart.
PERFORMANCES DONATED BY…
Coco Lectric, Ginger Snaps,
Chola Magnolia, the Boiz of Austin,
Ruby Lamb, Channing Ate'Em,
Zoja Ulesoo, Dandy Velour,
the Toxic Twins, Alice Cooter,
Zenyth Gale, Justin Beaver,
Fawn D. Lightly, Stan Back,
Arthur Valverde, Drew Hart
