The Empire State Pride Agenda joins forces with the women in our community for the 10th year to celebrate Winter Heat, the hottest event of this season. We look forward to another rousing celebration as we take over one of Hell’s Kitchen’s premier nightclubs.

Our always sold-out event brings together women and allies representing all members of our community. This year we're thrilled to be joined by Lea DeLaria, Kristen Ellis-Henderson, Heather Matarazzo, Our Lady J, Rosie Pierri and Jane Velez-Mitchell. If you have any questions, please contact Special Events Manager Roger Calderon at (917) 522-3403 or via email at rcalderon@prideagenda.org. We look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!

**Advance ticket sales have now closed. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $100. A limited number of $30 under 30 tickets can be purchased at the door for guests under 30 years of age with valid ID.
