It’s a mouthful to say and an eyeful to see: GAYLAPALOOZA is here! The 12th annual benefit serving the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ+ Community Center—hosted by queen Elsa Touché—presents a rainbow of entertainment for those seeking further revelry to ring in 2022. The Rainbow Women’s Chorus, Opera San José and the Gay & Lesbian Freedom Band all make appearances, as well as the incomparable opera-singer-drag-queen Dusty Pörn fronting a string quartet. Higher-priced ticket tiers include raffle entry (ooh, prizes!), and of course it’s not too late to Auld Lang Syne a big check in support of queer community resources in the South Bay.
