Rainbows & Roses Soirée

The first formal fundraiser of the LGBTQ+ Community Coalition, Rainbows & Roses was held May 4 in Butchertown across two venues. The VIP portion of the evening at Lola above Butchertown Grocery saw guests enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as well as performances by Acting Against Cancer and LouisVogue. Later in the night, a crowd gathered at PLAY Louisville for more drinks, snacks provided by members of the Fair Event Vendors Alliance and spectacular performances by Suspend and Latrice Royale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.”
