Baton Rouge Pride and Red Cake Events Announce Their Newest Collaboration, the “Badass BR Drag Brunch”
Baton Rouge, LA – Baton Rouge Pride and Red Cake Events are pleased to announce their latest partnership in the production of the “Badass BR Drag Brunch." The drag brunch is set to take place on June 6th at Gallery14, beginning at 11:00 AM. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Baton Rouge Pride in order to help fund Louisiana’s largest family-friendly pride festival slated to take place in June 2022 as well as their other monthly community initiatives like “Queer Conversations” and “Business After Hours.”
Red Cake Events has been a supporter, sponsor, volunteer, and friend of the LGBTQ+ community since its inception. Beginning in the early 1990s, Red Cake’s founder, Heather Sewell Day, has volunteered and assisted with the production of events for organizations like Friends For Life and the HIV Alliance for Region Two, also known as HAART or more recently Open Health, to support the local and regional LGBTQIA+ community.
“This year has hit the whole entertainment industry hard from entertainers and event planners to venues and caterers. Not knowing when we could gather or share all the creativity with the world again was both devastating and stressful,” says Ms. Day. “When Red Cake took over Gallery14 in March of 2021, I was giddy with ideas of all of the events I wanted to host when the world opened up again. Having the Badass Drag Brunch was absolutely at the top of my list! I’m levitated and elated with excitement to raise a glass with all of the Glamazons, celebrate Pride week, and most of all raise money and support Baton Rouge Pride!”
“Both I and the BRPride committee were saddened to have to cancel not only one, but two of our major pride fest events,” said Baton Rouge Pride Chair Chris Bradford. “When Heather first approached me about planning a fundraiser for Baton Rouge Pride I was elated. Having the ability now to work with Heather has been a blessing especially to be able to give back to the community in at least some capacity during pride month. We look forward to the talents of Miranda Mann, London Manchester, Lady Danisha Andrews, Connie Hung, Laveau Contraire, and special guest Quiana Lynell.”
