WHAT: alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet hosted its fifth annual pride event this year with a "Camp Pride" theme. The night benefited the Ali Forney Center which is the largest LGBTQ community center helping LGBTQ homeless youth. In keeping with the theme, guests socialized in a bunk bed cabin room, a camp canteen filled with camp-themed snacks, t-shirts, hoodies, and other fun surprises. There was a bright pink log cabin that served as a photo booth, an oversized canoe filled with flowers, bars that looked like camp lifeguard stations, and camp-themed activations such as friendship bracelet making, tetherball, and cornhole. Guests enjoyed vegan sliders and fries from Neat Burger, drank Astral Tequila cocktails, and grabbed Juneshine and FLow water drinks out of Stace Face co-branded minnidip pool tubs. The live performance by Kenzie and DJ Ty Sunderland was on a giant rainbow stage while the dancers kept the crowd partying the rest of the night.

ABOUT ALI FORNEY CENTER

The Ali Forney Center mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youth from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. In 2002, Carl Siciliano founded the Ali Forney Center (AFC) in memory of, and after, a gender-nonconforming youth who was tragically murdered in 1997. The organization has grown to become the largest agency dedicated to LGBTQ+ homeless youths in the country— assisting nearly 2,000 youth per year through a 24-hour Drop-In Center which provides over 70,000 meals annually, medical and mental health services through an on-site clinic, and a scattered site housing program.
