Gay West '08 Update

Old Tucson Studios will again proudly serve as “party central” for Southern Arizona’s largest Gay Pride event, Gay West 2008. Gay West is a western-themed fundraising event that benefits Wingspan, Southern Arizona's non-profit, charitable organization and community Center.

Headlining this year’s event is none other than Disco Diva and Grammy Winner Thelma Houston, a huge favorite among the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community. Ms, Houston’s personal anthem, “Don’t Leave Me This Way” is sure to bring down the house at Old Tucson Studios which has hosted the event for nine years.

Houston will be presented with the 2nd Annual Gay West Humanitarian Award for her work in the fight against AIDS. Throughout her career, Ms. Houston has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of people with HIV/Aids, donating her talents to organizations such as AIDS Project Los Angeles and the Minority AIDS Project.

The event also includes a one-of-a-kind drag show, dancing to the hottest music, great food, stunt shows with flair, and much, much more!

The event kicks-off at 6pm and runs until 12 Midnight.

Tickets are $16 in advance (before 6/18/08) or $19 at the gate. VIP ticket ($100) includes exclusive meet and greet with Ms Houston, VIP seating for the concert and special gifts to mark the occasion. Reduced price $75 VIP tickets may be purchased at Tucson’s Woody’s Bar.
