Tony Award nominee Colman Domingo (The Scottsboro Boys) is set to perform at the annual Spirit of Pride event on June 20th at New York City’s Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in honor of the LGBT community.

The special event begins at 7pm and will include short plays by noteworthy people that focus on the persistent threat of bullying among the youth of the LGBT community.

Spirit of Pride, curated by Jack Doulin, is free and open to the public. The event will also includes performances from Jason Butler Harner (The Coast of Utopia trilogy) and Joanna Howard.

Adults established in the arts, media, education, government and business will also be on hand to show their encouragement for standing strong for personal dignity and equality.

James Lecesne (Off-Broadway’s “Word of Mouth”), co-founder of The Trevor Project, serves as this year’s keynote speaker and Michael Feingold will pay tribute to playwright and gay activist Doric Wilson, who died earlier this year. In addition, TOSOS, the theatre company co-founded by Wilson, will present a piece entitled “Street Theater.”

The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine is located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue. For more information, visit Spirit of Pride’s website.
