Gay West - June 21

Yee-haw! Slap on your spurs and saddle up for Gay West '08 on June 21 from 6 to 11 pm at Old Tucson Studios. Hold on to your hat because this year's event features an exclusive Old Tucson Studios performance by Grammy legend Thelma Houston performing her #1 Dance/Pop hit Don't Leave Me This Way and songs from her newest CD A Woman's Touch.

Known as a humanitarian for her ongoing support for a variety of charitable causes and most specifically for her tireless efforts in the battle against AIDS, the dynamic disco diva will be presented with the 2008 Gay West Humanitarian Award. 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.

Gay West is a western-themed festive fundraising event that benefits Wingspan, Southern Arizona's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center. General Admission Tickets: $16 online before June 18. Special VIP Tickets $100 - includes an all-access pass to the event activities, transportation to and from Woody’s Bar, entry to a special meet-and-greet party with Thelma Houston and VIP seating at the concert!
