The Stonewall Alliance Center in Chico is hosting the 5th annual MasQueerade Ball from 7 - 11 p.m. at the Chico Women's Center, 592 E. 3rd Street.
It's a benefit for the Center, intended to unite and empower the geneder and sexual minority community. All proceeds go toward the Stonewall Alliance's continued mission to provide services to the LBGTQI+ community that include support groups, advocacy programs and free HIV and Hep C testing.
The MasQureerade Ball features dancing, live performances by dancers and drag royalty, fashion art by Chikoko and music by local producer and DJ Confido. Guests are encouraged to attend in "outrageous bourgeois attire" (high fashion of the bizarre and frivolous" and create their own unique, bejeweled masterpiece at the Mask Design Table during the event. There will be a no host bar for those who are 21 and older.
This year Stonewall is also offering a free makeup and styling pre-party from 5-7 p.m. at Tender Loving Coffee. RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (530) 893-3336.
