San Diego CA— On Sunday, July 14, the Little Italy Association will honor and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a brand-new, sanctioned San Diego PRIDE event, OUT in Little Italy: Pride Brunch in Little Italy’s Piazza della Famiglia from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The intimate mimosa brunch will feature eclectic food offerings from participating eateries at the Little Italy Food Hall, bottomless mimosas, live drag performances, fresh PRIDE/House music, and more! The heart of Little Italy will come alive with colorful rainbow décor and exciting festivities to take place during the mid-morning event, including DJ Jinx Mirage spinning tracks and drag performances by the winner of XTina Draguilera on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens Live, Kickxy Vixen-Styles and Glitz Glam. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the programs of San Diego PRIDE.
“We are thrilled to bring the LGBTQ+ community another way to partake in the joyous San Diego PRIDE celebrations this year!” said Chris Gomez, Little Italy Association’s district manager. “We always aim to provide a welcoming environment that promotes unity, inclusivity and diversity. At OUT in Little Italy: Pride Brunch, guests can expect to spend the magical morning eating decadent food, sipping on bubbly mimosas and enjoying live musical talents before heading to the San Diego Sunday PRIDE Festival.”
Guests will be entertained the whole morning by all three talents. Not only is Kickxy Vixen-Styles the winner of XTina Draguilera on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens Live, but she’s the queen of many faces and specializes in cosplay drag.
