Party-Goers Flock to Palm Springs to #ExpressLove at Pride Event!
Everybody say "LOVE!"
was the place to be over the weekend for the #ExpressLove Pride
party, alongside Paper magazine. #ExpressLove (which was
created by American Express -- get it?) first kicked off their
Pride events at NYC’s Pride, where Christian
Siriano, Lance Bass, and Lea
DeLaria came out to celebrate. It seemed appropriate to
end the fiestas in Palm Springs, which is home to one of the most
vibrant LGBT communities in Southern California. The event featured
playful cocktails, delectable snacks, and a performance by none
other than Shangela of “RuPaul’s Drag
Race”. She brought the house down with her own rendition of
“Uptown Funk” -- rearranged as “Uptown
Fish” -- as well as one of her signature death drops. She
made all of us yell "halleloo"!
American Express paired with The Center, a local community organization designed to provide wellness, education, and support for Palm Springs residents.
I was quite honored to attend this event, as it was a pleasure to share in and celebrate Pride. It is crucial that now more than ever we cherish one another and embrace who we are. We must remember that love is love, and now is the time to celebrate and fight for what makes us different -- as that is what makes our country great.
