Join us and LGBT stars from Broadway, Orange is the New Black, The Voice, and more to celebrate the importance and impact of LGBT media representation and raise money to ensure that more diverse and underrepresented youth and independent content creators enter the media and performing arts. This year we’re spotlighting LGBT media with an actors’ panel & Q&A, keynote by Amelia from The Huffington Post, and musical performances. The event is a charity fundraiser commemorating BAYCAT's 10 Years Bold Anniversary and launching The Box Scene Project's Mirror Scholarship & Fellowship - a monetary award facilitating the entrance of diverse and underrepresented youth and independent content creators into the media arts. Get your tickets and come early for our pre-show reception and stay late for our post-show VIP celebration! You don’t want to miss this!

Pamela Daly portrays one of the most influential women
in American history - Margaret Sanger; the Founder of
