If you’re looking for way to ring in 2017, you’ll find no better celebration than Pride Center San Antonio’s second annual New Year’s Eve Kiki on December 31, at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio Hotel.

The event will be headlined by RuPaul Drag Race All Star Yara Sofia. Music for the Kiki will be provided DJ Stevie G.

According to Wikipedia, “a ‘kiki’ is a term which grew out of Black and Latino social culture – loosely defined as an expression of laughter or onomatopoeia for laughing, which extended to mean a gathering of friends for the purpose of gossiping and chit-chat, and later made more widely known in the song Let’s Have a Kiki by the Scissor Sisters.”

The Pride Center’s New Year’s Eve Kiki will be held on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Palacio del Rio Hotel in a banquet room with panoramic views of downtown San Antonio and the Hemisfair midnight fireworks display. Admission includes two drink tickets, party favors, delicious bites, a DJ spinning dance tunes and a champagne toast.

In a letter sent to prospective event sponsors, the Pride Center hopes to raise $10,000 which would be used to support the organization’s programs and services. “As a volunteer organization, every dollar that we raise through fundraisers like our annual New Year’s Kiki not only allows us to continue our work with Pride Families or SafeZone Training, but also will allow us to continue on our quest for a permanent physical space for expanded community programming and fellowship,” the letter states.

New Year’s Eve Kiki sponsors include Capital One Bank, Male B-Wear, Ray Lopez Entertainment, Love Shack Boutique, the San Antonio Current, Out In SA Magazine, Cute Smiles 4 Kids and ABH Hospitality Management.
