Written and hosted by Justin Elizabeth Sayre, Night of a Thousand Judys honors late entertainment icon Judy Garland with songs from her career as movie star, recording artist, and stage performer. Peter James Cook will direct the evening, with choreography by Jason Wise and music direction by Jeremy Robin Lyons.

At this year's concert, Tony nominee Justin Vivian Bond will be honored with the inaugural Judy Icon Award. The award recognizes the recipient's contributions to the LGBTQIA+ community, following in Garland's footsteps.

Through its 24/7 Drop-In Center, Ali’s Place, and a network of 13 emergency and transitional housing sites, the Ali Forney Center serves over 2,200 LGBTQIA+ young people. The Center also supports organizations to utilize its expertise to replicate its model of success around the world.
