The Chicago Red Stars will kick off pride month in Chicago by teaming with local businesses and talent for a virtual Pride Party presented by Illinois Bone and Joint Institute on Thursday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m.

A portion of all ticket sales will benefit Howard Brown Health.

The event will consist of both free and paid portions so everyone can participate in some capacity. The free portion will be live-streamed on the Chicago Red Stars YouTube channel and features a performance from Lyric Opera's Desiree Hassler and drag queen Em Merle of The Back Door. The team has also partnered with Women Unite!, a Chicago-based nonprofit, for an "Allyship 101" training session teaching participants how to be an ally to the LGBTQ community in the time of a pandemic.

Fans who purchase the $40 ticket will receive a Chicago Red Stars pride T-shirt and pronoun pin as well as access to additional entertainment on Zoom. There will be three rounds of Drag Bingo hosted by Em Merle, featuring Red Stars swag packs for the winners. Performances include Kit Kat Lounge Divas Madam X and Shantell DeMarco; a virtual dance party hosted by DJ Sandra Suave; and more.

The Kit Kat lounge is supporting the event with two custom cocktail kits available for pickup or delivery statewide. Patrons can place their orders for the Red Stars Party in a Box or Disco Party In a Box via phone ( 773-525-1111 ) or email ( contact@kitkatchicago.com ).

Fans can purchase tickets to the entire Pride Party event at https://groupmatics.events/event/CRSVirtualPride .
