Main Street Bar & Cabaret hosts fundraiser to benefit OC Pride’s charity work on Saturday

Main Street Bar is holding a special fundraising event in conjunction with Jordan Brodee (Mr. OC Pride), Ms. Whisper Sixx, and Laken Moreno (Ms. OC Pride) on Saturday, Jan 4 from 7 - 9 p.m. Following the show, House DJ TRAKQUEEN will start her set at 9 p.m. The bar closes at 2 a.m.

It’s bound to be a fun-filled two hours followed by DJ TRAKQUEEN for dancing and nightclub cocktails. There’s no cover, but a $10 donation is requested, all of which benefits Mr. OC Pride’s chosen charities, which include OC Pride and OC Imperial Court (OCIC) – they provide scholarships and burial services and are an old nonprofit in the county – and the OC Chapter of HRC. 

And it’s a Rock The Vote event (so they’ll be encouraging people to sign up to vote with the organization Head Count).

Wendy Nelson, co-owner of Main Street Bar, says, “Main Street Bar is not affiliated with any political party or organization. We welcome all who are kind and positive. Rock The Vote! Make a stand. Come enjoy a fun event.”

DJ TRAKQUEEN 

DJ TRAKQUEEN graduated top of her class at LA’s Scratch Academy’s Accelerated Program (2018) and is currently studying the art of turntabalism with MRCHOC and DJBABU at the Beat Junkie’s Institute of Sound in Glendale. She has been the resident DJ at Main Street Bar & Cabaret for over two years, has produced weekly and monthly dance parties across the OC for over three years, and was the featured DJ for OC Pride 2018 and 2019. 

OC Pride is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit LGBTQ+ Pride Festival and parade. OC Pride’s Mission is to strengthen the identity of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community within Orange County. “We Unite LGBTQ+ people, empower them to live openly with pride, and promote respect for all. Part of that is celebrating their vibrant culture, traditions, and enduring spirit. We also help provide opportunities to foster tolerance, awareness, safety, and support in the LGBTQ+ community while forging alliances with the Orange County public at large.”

Nelson says, “One of our Drag Show hostesses will be an MC at the event as well. Whisper Sixx, drag personality, actor, recording artist. Rather accomplished.”

Drag Show Hostess and Event MC, Miss Whisper Sixx

Whisper is one of the reasons MSBC won Best Drag Shows in the OC from OC Weekly. Nelson says, “We appreciate positives and kindness, solid performers, and some rather over the top personalities.”

More fun at Main Street – the bar is hosting its Annual New Year’s Eve Party tonight, December 31. The cover starts at 10 p.m., so attendees should come early for snacks and party favors. DJ TRAKQUEEN will be spinning.

On January 1, New Year’s Day, Main Street will have an old favorite DJ Homolone spinning for the bar’s New Year’s Recovery Event.

Main Street Bar & Cabaret is located at 1460 S Coast Hwy between Mountain and Calliope.
