From its earliest stages as a group of concerned citizens (2009) to the development of a board (2011) and the opening of administrative offices on East Mistletoe (2014), the nonprofit Pride Center San Antonio has dedicated itself to supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and ally community in Bexar County. As a means to further the center’s efforts to improve the quality of life for our LGBT community, some of San Antonio’s brightest burlesque and drag talents join forces for the Emerald Ball. Presented by San Antonio Current/Out In SA photographer Julián P. Ledezma’s JPL Productions and hosted by gender-bending glam-bear queen Foxxy Blue Orchid, the fifth annual “burlesque drag fundraiser” promises “show-stopping performances” by JD Hickock and Chola Magnolia (reigning King and Queen of San Antonio Burlesque), the Pastie Pops’ own Jasper St. James, Stars and Garters mainstays Squirrely Temple and Miss Lucky Strike and members of Austin’s Fat Bottom Cabaret. $10, 6-9pm, Heat Nightclub, 1500 N. Main Ave., (210) 227-2600, pridecentersa.org. — BR
