A Special Thanksgiving Day Message from your Co-Chairs (November 26, 2020)

2020 Annual Banquet & Holiday Party

Our 2020 Awards Banquet & Holiday Party will be held virtually on Thursday, December 17 starting at 7pm on Zoom (attend event here). The event will be hosted by local drag queen extraordinaire Audrey Phoenix. Everyone is also invited to perform for the team in an open virtual drag talent show, and you can sign up until Monday, December 7. If you are interested in putting on a performance, please fill out this drag talent show sign-up form.

We are still accepting nominations for the 2020 awards until Sunday, December 6. If you would like to nominate your teammates for a 2020 award, fill out our 2020 award nomination form (deadline is Sunday, December 6).

This is also a fundraiser for TNYA! We will be giving away prizes to the drag performers who receive the most virtual tips for TNYA during their performance. Invite your friends to watch you perform and donate. Losing a member of the TNYA community is never easy. This pandemic has added a layer of complication the mourning process, since the celebration of one life could result in endangering another. We want to celebrate these lives safely. The awards banquet will include special remembrance for the TNYAs who we have lost this year, including Matt Clark and Robby Browne. We also plan on showing continued love and support for CA Hutton who has recently entered hospice for pancreatic cancer. We hope you can make it!

Other Upcoming Events (2020-2021 Annual Full Membership Meeting, 2020 Fiscal Year Closeout, 2021 Board Elections, etc.)

We are currently working on scheduling our next Annual Full Membership Meeting, which will include our annual financial closeout for the 2020 fiscal year and 2021 board elections. Our Annual Meeting is usually a physical in-person gathering held in January, but we are exploring options to hold the meeting virtually. If you are interested in running for the 2021 board, or helping us plan the meeting, reach out to us at: mail@tnya.org
