Circle of Friends

Our Hosts are at the core of the Circle of Friends tradition of our events and support of our beneficiaries: friends inspiring friends to gather in celebration to benefit community. Hosts provide the funding to produce the Grass Roots Gay Rights Foundation season of events so that 100 percent of the REAL BAD general admission ticket price is donated to our beneficiary nonprofit organizations. And they truly host our events as the primary source of tickets — creating, through their Circle of Friends, REAL BAD’s uniquely familiar, intimate and playful atmosphere.
