Hundreds of people came together Sunday for a poolside brunch and cocktails in celebration of Outfest and the LGBTQ+ community at AT&T’s Big Queer Brunch. The event was held at the Mondrian Los Angeles and was part of the week-long Outfest Film Festival, where LGTBQ stories from around the world are showcased on screen.
Stars in attendance of the brunch included some of the most influential LGTBQ+ and ally names like singer-songwriter Daya, beauty guru Manny MUA, YouTuber Gigi Gorgeous, recording artist Parson James and many more. The AT&T Big Queer Brunch also had special performances by musical duo Cosmos & Creature as well as surprise drag performances by Mayhem Miller, Jasmine Maters and The Vixen. MUSE TV’s Christine Romero spoke to Manny MUA and Gigi Gorgeous.
Since 1975, AT&T has been a proud ally of the LGBTQ+ community. The company was one of the first American corporations to adopt a policy prohibiting discrimination against their employees based on sexual orientation. HBO is the presenting sponsor and AT&T is the grand sponsor of Outfest, which is the leading organization that promotes LGBTQ equality by creating, sharing and protecting queer cinema. Outfest was founded by UCLA students in 1982.
