JFB Celebrates PRIDE!

Jewish Federation of the Bluegrass is PROUD to announce our first ever event meant to highlight the LGBTQ+ community and show our support to every Jewish identity and beyond. The event will be held on June 11, 2022 at the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center from 8:00 to 10:30pm. Purchase tickets here!


Don’t miss out on an evening full of fun and entertainment!

You’ll get into the party mood with delicious specialty cocktails, beer, and wine from bartender Norma Smith. As you jam to fun tunes by DJ Christina Green, make your way to the snack table to enjoy delicious cupcakes from Laura Lou Patisserie, as well as a selection of tasty and colorful candies to satisfy your sweet tooth. While you snack, make sure you have some cash in hand because you’ll want to tip our incredible performers as they delight you with a spectacular show! We’ll have an incredible drag performance featuring Lexington’s own Uma Jewels and a few of her friends.

The party doesn’t stop there! Guests will also participate in a community art project which one lucky guest will get to take home at the end of the night!

Proceeds from the event benefit Arbor Youth Services, Inc., an organization working to end youth homelessness. As many LGBTQ+ youth find themselves experiencing homelessness, we want to do our part to put an end to the struggle and support Arbor Youth Services in their programs and services.


Tickets are only $36 per person.
