"Out In The Park Celebration of Diversity" will return for the fifth year to Six Flags Great America with YouTube sensation Todrick Hall performing. This private diversity fundraising event will be held on Saturday, September 10, to benefit TPAN's "Ride for Aids", among other charities, and feature unlimited riding on ALL of Six Flags' THRILL rides (with much shorter lines than usual)!
"One of the best elements of this event is that it is closed to the general public and, this year, will piggy-back a daytime corporate buyout so guests will be entering an EMPTY PARK!" explains Michael Snell, co-owner of BestGayChicago.com. "The LGBTQ community, their family, friends and supporters can enjoy the park with short lines and without homophobic hassles from anyone. It’s like a Fall Gay Pride Celebration with even MORE amusement and entertainment!"
All night long, attendees can "follow the bass" to the Hometown Square dance area where hostess Khloe from The DJ’s of SCARLET Bar Chicago/Honolulu will keep the party jumping. At 8 pm, Todrick will kick off the evening with a couple of live numbers following a meet-and-greet with fans.
Todrick is a singer, actor, dancer, director, choreographer and wildly famous YouTuber with over 2 million subscribers. His videos of note include a flash mob thrown for Ariana Grande, a reinvention of the Wizard of Oz starring Pentatonix and a Beyonce-themed flash mob performed in the middle of a Target store that went viral. Beyonce publicly congratulated Hall on this performance. Hall heads to Broadway for "Kinky Boots" November 1.
Attendees get FREE parking for this special event presented by MINI Cooper and Fireball! Advance tickets are $41 and can be purchased here NOW! On September 5th, the price goes up to $46. ($51 at the gate) Tickets will be capped at 5,000 to ensure lines stay short. This is an all-ages event with drinks available for 21 and over.
