A prominent Washington, D.C., restaurant group beloved by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle is celebrating LGBTQ “Pride Month” with a weekend drag brunch steps from the White House.
The Hamilton Live & Clyde’s Restaurant Group will “celebrate the beauty of Pride Month” with an “Illusions Drag Brunch” at The Hamilton Live venue on June 11. Tickets to the event, which is 21+, go for $65, and $5 from each ticket will go to support the Capital Pride Alliance—an organization staffed by LGBTQ advocates linked to organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign.
The Human Rights Campaign pushes transgender surgical and hormonal interventions for minors and implements woke practices at corporations and medical institutions across the nation through its Healthcare Equality Index and Corporate Equality Index.
According to the Capitol Pride Alliance, the group welcomed more than 650,000 people to its Capital Pride celebrations last summer: “2023 marks the 48th anniversary of Pride in Washington, D.C., and we are planning our biggest yet.”
The Hamilton Live drag brunch will be “proudly showcasing the extraordinary talent of Shi Queeta Lee,” promising a “fabulous performance that will leave you spellbound.”
“Whether you’re a drag aficionado or new to the scene, Illusions Drag Brunch featuring Shi Queeta Lee promises an inclusive and joyous experience for all,” a Clyde’s Restaurant Group press release for the event says. “You don’t want to miss the opportunity to be part of a fabulous morning filled with one-of-a-kind entertainment, delicious food & drink, and an atmosphere that celebrates diversity, empowerment, and the power of individuality.”
Clyde’s Restaurant Group owns a variety of popular restaurants in the D.C. area., including Old Ebbitt Grill, widely considered a D.C. classic, as well as a number of Clyde’s: American Bar & Restaurant locations, The Tombs, 1789 Restaurant, and more.
“Clyde’s Restaurant Group (CRG) is one of the nation’s most successful and enduring restaurant companies,” the group says in a press release. “In 1963, the original Clyde’s opened in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The brand has expanded to include 12 properties in Northern Virginia, suburban Maryland, and the District of Columbia … .”
“CRG closely holds a commitment to its people and the region, proudly fostering an environment of inclusivity, respect, and exceptional hospitality,” the release emphasized.
The restaurant group did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
