Co-founded in 1987, Golden Rainbow is a non-profit organization that provides housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada. The organization was established by members of the Las Vegas entertainment industry who saw the need to provide housing for people with AIDS when one of their fellow performers was forced to live and eventually die in his family’s garage.

EDIE, the Mistress of Sensuality from “Zumanity,” and Sean McAllister, from FOX 5’s MORE Show will return as hosts as they introduce talent from nearly every major show on the Strip. For over 30 years, Ribbon of Life has been an original talent showcase unlike any other in Las Vegas, featuring custom production numbers from the Strip’s best singers, dancers, and performers.

“The summer of Woodstock was filled with peace, love, and music,” said Golden Rainbow’s Executive Director Gary Costa. “We are excited to recreate this iconic celebration in history and hope to unite the community and bring the same compassion and equality the original festival did.”

Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early and receive 25% off by using code “SOL25.”  Offer available until May 1. Tickets start at $45 and can be purchased at goldenrainbow.org/ribbonoflife. Guests of all ages are welcome to attend the show.

Golden Rainbow is also accepting performance submissions from the Las Vegas entertainment community. For those interested in performing at this year’s event, please email [email protected].
