Sunday's drag queen-filled New York bash will benefit OutRight International.

While you party yourself into exhaustion closing out another Pride Month and Pride Week in New York city, why not take the time to give back to the very community you're celebrating?

Though the annual Pride march commemorating the Stonewall riots has evolved from a protest into a celebration of life, expression, and inclusion, it's nearly impossible to escape some of the darker situations LGBTQ individuals face around the world, even when you're bare chest to bare chest with sweaty men.

This Pride Sunday, dozens of drag queens, leaders from the LGBTQ community, and gay celebrities and allies are coming together for "Love on Top," a fundraising party on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, presented by New York queen Monica Blewinsky. It will raise money for the global LGBT advocacy work of the United Nations liaison, Outright Action International.

Though American citizens were awarded marriage equality after a hard-fought battle, other members of the global LGBTQ community don't share that luxury, and more still live without protection from the state in places like Chechnya, and even here at home. Outright collaborates closely with the United Nations developing social strategies to help lessen the violence and discrimination the community faces on a global scale.

Gay nightlife mainstays and drag royalty will headline the "Love on Top" fundraiser, with Bianca Del Rio, Shangela, and Pearl of RuPaul's Drag Racefame making special appearances alongside a gaggle of other queens and recognizable faces including New York City favorites Marti Gould Cummings, Vinny Vega, and Shequida. DJs 2Face, Horrorchata, and Nandi will supply the beats throughout the evening and make sure 2017 Pride is closed out properly.

The "Love on Top" fundraiser takes place Sunday, June 25 at Dream Midtown (210 West 55th St at Broadway) from 4-10pm. Tickets are available for purchase here.
