|Taking the stage to host Las Vegas Pride Festival 2016|
I had an awesome time this past weekend at Las Vegas Pride. With a huge turnout at Sunset Park over two days of PRIDE Festival, there was definitely something for everyone.
I was honored to host the mainstage with the glamorous Shannel, of RuPauls' Drag Race and the new star and host of 53X at the Chateau Showroom at Paris Las Vegas.
From afternoon to evening, we chatted up the crowd and introduced folks like the Chippendales, comedian and Pride Parade Marshal Alec Mapa, current U.S. Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto, stars from Frank Marino's DIVAS and more.
This year's festival also included two additional stages, one for more intimate performances and one for dance music, plus a special PRIDE pet park with pet costume contest!
