Actress Dominique Jackson made an appearance at Hydrate on Aug. 16. She told an early VIP audience how much she appreciated the support for Pose, the FX television show on which she plays Elektra Abundance, making history with the largest transgender cast ever for a scripted series.
A Mini Ball event followed with over $1,000 in cash prizes and a variety of categories, including Best Dress, Sex Siren and Up in Pumps. Commentators for the runway competition were Kentrele Mizrahi and Mz Ruff n Stuff with music provided by DJ Matty Aga and DJ Kid Riott.
