 Registration is closed for this event
The 10th Annual LGBTQ+ Purim Ball! Presented by JQY, Eighteen:22, and JCC Manhattan In support of the JQY Teen Drop-in Center for LGBTQ Jewish Youth

Let’s face it, nobody does fabulous like WE do!


Purim is the Jewish holiday where we get so wild that we no longer can tell the difference between Queen Esther and her Uncle Mordechai...sounds pretty queer to me!  So what better place to celebrate the holiday than at the LGBTQ+ Purim Ball – celebrating 10 years!


Want to bring your straight friends or not LGBTQ yourself? Not to worry, we are STRAIGHT FRIENDLY, so come down and party with us!


Come as yourself, come as someone else, everybody is welcome so bring all of your friends.

ALL AGES welcome (18+)

Costumes optional but recommended.


Did we mention that there is an OPEN BAR, Drag DJ and endless supply of Hamantaschen?
