A makeup artist by day who performs as Drag Nation regular Ginger Douglas by night, Briceson Ducharme leads a fantastic double life. Both personalities come together tonight for Apocalyptic Ball 5: The Revolution, a signature fundraiser conceived a half-decade ago to raise money for AIDS Walk Colorado. The multi-faceted, high-energy show features drag, burlesque, fashion and more for an evening that celebrates life and supports the HIV and AIDS communities.

“Being able to support the community and people who need it is honestly the most rewarding and successful part of putting this on,” says Ducharme of the night out and fundraiser he founded after finding out that he was HIV-positive. Douglas is one of dozens of acts who will take the stage; others include local celebrity host Kathie J., DJ Chris Cornell and a special guest from RuPaul’s Drag Race, Delta Work.

Every dollar raised will be matched by a corporate donor. Last year’s ball raised more than $22,000, making it the largest contributor to AIDS Walk Colorado.

Apocalyptic Ball 5: The Revolution goes down at 8 p.m. at Exdo Event Center, 1399 35th Street. Tickets for the eighteen-and-up show are $15 to $20; VIP seating is available for $250. For more information, go to facebook.com/apocalyptic.ball; for tickets, visit tracksdenver.com.
Sat., July 12, 8 p.m.-1 a.m., 2014
