Their Most Imperial and Sovereign Majesties, Emperor XXI Ritz Kraka and Empress XXVI Witti Repartee, are excited to invite you to join them at the 27th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns,
held this year on April 6, 2013 at the Hilton New York!
Join the entire Imperial Court of New York for a glittering and joyous celebration as we raise funds for GLAAD and GMHC, are entertained by Broadway Favorite Karen Mason (Mamma Mia, Sunset Boulevard, Wonderland), RuPaul's All Star Drag Diva Chad Michaels (with more yet to be announced!) and attend the midnight coronation of Imperial Crown Prince Royal Wen-D Bouvier Pinkhouse and Imperial Crown Princess Royale Gracie Steeles.
Personalities and entertainers abound! Last year, audiences were dazzled by comedienne Lisa Lampanelli, Olympic Skater and Reality star Johnny Weir, Amra Faye-Wright and the cast of Chicago, drag sensation Ebonee Excell and many others!
Who will show up for this year's fabulous ball? Come and find out!
The Imperial Court of New York is excited to announce that the 2013 Imperial Diamond Award will be presented that night to Elvis Duran, one of last year's Honorary Chars, and award winning host of the nationally syndicated Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, heard locally on Z100.
The Imperial Diamond Award is ICNY's most prestigious way of recognizing a member of the greater community whose service to LGBT and HIV related causes is exemplary. Previous winners include Political Author and Activist David Mixner, Speaker of the New York City Council Christine Quinn and Celebrity Photographer Mike Ruiz.
We look forward to announcing more special guests as we get closer and closer to this fabulous evening, but don't miss out on your chance to get the best seats in the house this year: And as an added feature this year, you get to pick your own seats!
