KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Featured performers Michael Ian Black, Carson Kressley, Fortune Feimster, Dana Goldberg, and special guest Ty Herndon will descend on the Folly Theater in Kansas City on Friday, Nov. 13, 2015 for the annual fundraiser of LIKEME Lighthouse, Kansas City’s LGBT Community Center.

Scheduled to be honored this year are the 2015 recipients of "The Shine A Light" awards - National Honoree, actor Wilson Cruz - and Kansas City Councilperson, Jolie Justus. This is the fourth LIKEME Lighthouse fundraiser. Previously Alan Cummings, Hal Sparks, Margaret Cho, Wanda Sykes, Chely Wright, and many other performers visited Kansas City to raise funds for the metro area’s LGBT center.

The mission of LIKEME Lighthouse is to provide a safe and welcoming space where LGBT individuals and their families, friends, and straight allies can come for education, resources, and to build a cohesive LGBT community in the Midwest.

The LIKEME® Organization was founded in March 2010 by country music star Chely Wright, who chose to publicly come out and to advocate for the LGBT community. The LIKEME® board of directors, composed of well-known public figures from across the country who support the LGBT movement, wanted to do more of a grassroots effort and voted to open an LGBT community center for the Midwest. The Kansas City area was chosen for the center, which was named the LIKEME® Lighthouse. It opened its doors in March 2012.

Tickets on sale now at follytheater.org. The LIKEME Lighthouse is at 3911 Main St., Kansas City, MO 64111, and the phone number is 816-753-7770.
