Airport concessionaire OTG and United Airlines will host the first airport DJ Drag Brunch at Newark Liberty International (EWR) on June 20 in order in order to celebrate Pride Month and The Trevor Project.
The brunch, produced by Jake Resnicow and hosted by Harmonica Sunbeam, will feature DJ Steve-Sidewalk and performances by Jahlissa A. Ross, Pattaya Hart, Fifi Dubois, Caracol Richards, Daesha Richards and Kennedy Davenport, star of the TV show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
“This was a tremendous opportunity for us to celebrate our LGBTQ+ community and benefit The Trevor Project,” Eric Brinker, OTG VP of experience says in a statement. “With United’s partnership, we’ve been able to provide our guests a truly unique airport experience.”
Jill Kaplan, United’s president for New York and New Jersey, adds, “We are extremely proud to host the inaugural drag brunch in partnership with OTG at Newark Airport in celebration of pride, but equally as enthusiastic to support organizations like The Trevor Project who provide assistance for LGBTQ+ youth.”
The Drag Brunch will be held at Novella in Terminal C and after the brunch, entertainers will travel throughout Terminal C allowing opportunities for passengers to engage in the festivities. Proceeds and every MileagePlus mile redeemed from the brunch benefit The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people.
