The annual fundraiser to support HIV/AIDS related groups is returning to Kings Dominion next month and you can pick up your tickets now. It all happens Saturday, September 5th and the organizers are proud to say the event has, in a way, come full circle.
Organized by the folks at Brother Help Thyself, who give all of the proceeds from the event to GLBT and HIV/AIDS related groups from Baltimore to RVA, said the early days of Kings Dominion Gay Days were meager, but the event has grown exponentially to become a day-long celebration for the first time this year since their early days.
“In the early days, we had Gay Day and co-mingled in the park with the general population wearing red shirts,” said the event organizers on their website. “Then we had Gay & Lesbian Night, and had the park to ourselves all night. Well this year, we have all kinds of good stuff to announce. First, we’ll be in the park all day with the general population.”
Tickets for the event are only $37 (a big savings from their regular rate) and they get you access to the park all day long, from 10:30am until the end of our event at midnight.
New this year, because our event occurs before Labor Day, organizers have arranged for attendees to have sole early access to the water park from 10:30am until 12 Noon!
The night-time dance party is a little different this year, and will take place from 8pm until midnight in the picnic grove near the amphitheater.
Most of all, your attendance helps support BHT’s grantmaking efforts and our ability to help the LGBTQ communities in DC, Baltimore and points in between..
