Never before in the history of Evening Under the Stars have we had the variety of talent and hit music makers than will take the stage this year. These ladies are synonymous with one of the most unforgettable periods in American music, and we know our guests will be wowed by an unforgettable performance.
Gala festivities will include cocktails served by an abundance of bartenders, fabulous live and silent auctions, inspiring honorees, delectable cuisine, divine entertainment, and dancing.

The theme of the 21st annual gala performance is inspired by celebrated author and speaker James Arena’s book First Ladies of Disco: 32 Stars Discuss the Era and Their Singing Careers. In this collection of original interviews, 32 of these women tell their stories, explaining how they view their music, careers, connection to gay audiences, and their places in dance music history.
