Hello, friends! How is everyone’s week starting off? We hope it’s nothing short of fabulous and that you’ve fully fought off that Monday feeling. We recently had the pleasure of being guests at Step-Up, Inc.’s Afterparty, hosted via Zoom, for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5! We had such a good time and were so honored to be invited to support a great cause.
Step-Up, Inc. is a non-profit agency based in Indianapolis that provides HIV/STD prevention services, education, and care and wellness programs to newly diagnosed HIV patients. They partner with local medical facility, Eskenazi Health, to provide onsite care at Step-Up to patients who require higher levels of care and attention. Very cool. I (Jamal) have been tested at various Step-Up locations in the past. Every visit was pleasant, informative, and the staff was uber helpful.
Getting to pop up at Step-Up’s All Stars 5 Afterparty was such a pleasant way to kick off the weekend. Any chance we get to support and build our queer community, we’re definitely taking it! We had a blast answering questions, interacting with the other attendees, and were super pumped to be helping raise money for the organization. The whole hour was like a Drag Race, post-show tea party, and we feel so lucky to have been invited.
Thanks so much for having us, Step-Up! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing us at the next, and future afterparties.
