This is an Official Statement of Puerto Vallarta Gay Pride 2020 Organizing Committee. On Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 at 2PM CST, Brian Kent Productions in association with Vallarta Pride present “PV STRONG”, a Live-Streamed YouTube and Facebook Event to benefit the Puerto Vallarta Nightlife Relief Fund hosted by Billboard Recording Artist, Brian Kent and Drag Cabaret Sensation, Sutton Lee Seymour.
The event will feature performances and appearances by several local and international LGBTQ celebrities including Shangela, Eliad Cohen, Ross Matthews, Brook Lynn Heights, Debby Holiday, Beth Sachs, Sherry Vine, David Hernandez, Effie Passero, Kim Kuzma, Nina Flowers, Valentina, Amy Armstrong, Miss Conception, Mama Tits, Chi Chi Rones, David Malocco as Liberace, Lady Zen, Mark Hartman and many more.
As with so many events this year, the current pandemic has caused the cancellation of the Official 2020 Vallarta Pride Week celebrations scheduled to take place beginning Thursday, May 21st, 2020. With so many in the Vallarta LGBTQ nightlife community experiencing financial hardships because of bar and nightclub closures in light of the COVID19 pandemic, we’re taking Vallarta Pride into your living rooms to raise money for over 150 nightlife workers in need.
“PV STRONG” is the only Official Vallarta Pride event happening in lieu of originally planned 2020 events that have been cancelled. With nightlife being central to the Puerto Vallarta LGBTQ culture in the Romantic Zone, the purpose of the Puerto Vallarta Nightlife Relief Fund (PVNRF) is to provide financial relief to workers in the nightlife industry for as long as the current crisis continues. For more information on the fund or to make a donation, please visit PVNRF.ORG. The event is produced by Brian Kent Productions and specific event details will be made available on their website and all social media platforms on Tuesday, May 13, 2020.
