If I’m Googling correctly, Love Ball I and II were in 1989 and 1991, respectively, blending “high fashion and celebrities with the ballroom community from Paris Dupreeā€™s drag houses in Harlem,” and raised money for HIV/AIDS charities. This was its first year back, this time benefiting the CFDA-Vogue Initiative/New York City AIDS Fund of The New York Community Trust. Thank you, informative CFDA Page.

Billy Porter emceed the evening, and he CAME TO PLAY.
