The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami- Dade County is proud to invite the entire South Florida community to close out National Pride Month on June 25 at the fifth annual CommuniTea Dance, the Center’s FREE LGBTQ+ Pride celebration.
Hosted on the Center’s Thomson Plaza of the Arts, CommuniTea Dance, is an all-ages event honoring South Florida’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community. From 5 to 8 pm, guests will enjoy exploring the event’s Pride Marketplace which spotlights local LGBTQ+ organizations, artisans, creatives and small businesses. The event also features a stellar lineup of LGBTQ+ artists including Miami’s own DJ Hottpants, who will get everyone on the dance floor, as well as a special performance by celebrity drag queen and advocate Miz Cracker from “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Happy-hour food and drink specials will be available throughout the event.
Miz Cracker is a New York City drag queen—and a writer, foodie and comedienne. She launched her drag career in 2011 while participating in marches for marriage equality in Times Square. She went on to compete in “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season Ten, landing a spot in the top five and becoming a fan favorite. She later appeared in “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season Five, landing a spot in the top 3. Today, she tours the world with her one woman shows; delights fans on her YouTube channel; lectures on drag at top universities; writes for publications like Slate, ArtForum, Vice and GQ; engages nearly 1.5 million followers across social media; and tells the stories of incredible women through her interview podcast, “She’s a Woman.” Cracker describes herself as a “woman’s lifestyle brand,” and is a vocal advocate for women’s rights.
DJ Hottpants was born and bred in Miami and has brought guilty pleasure pop to his hometown since 2003. DJing the best and worst of his favorite music, Hottpants has spun at special events from Anchorage to Key West, and currently plays at a variety of restaurants and bars across South Florida.
