Talented dancer, friend of Homorazzi, and total babe Mark Kanemura headlines a great fundraiser this Saturday the 14th in LA for all our westcoast American friends, and it’s for a fantastic cause!
If you’re in the LA area this weekend, are at an advanced level of dance and wanna get your groove on, or just feel like hanging out with Lady Gaga’s principal dancer and watching some people sweat it out for a good cause then get your tushy down to the EDGE Performing Arts Center from 5:30 – 7:00 pm and bring some moola! The class is all monetary donation, 100% of the proceeds go towards charity, and whether your participating, watching, or just swinging by, they’re taking any donations you can spare for The Trevor Project. This past Christmas, while in his home state of Hawaii, Mark hosted a dance class for The Trevor Project raising $2040 and a whole WHACK of prezzies and goods as you can see with his smiling shining face above.
Founded in 1998, the organization itself’s core values are Acceptance, Commitment, and Innovation and as the site itself says:
The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.
Mark Kanemura was a finalist in Seasons 4 of So You Think You Can Dance, and has since found a lucrative and inspiring career doing what he does best: dancing! Mark has been with Lady Gaga since the VMA’s in 2009 where she had the infamous Paparazzi performance. He’s since gone on a lengthy Monster Ball tour with her, filmed a few handfuls of music videos, and now finds a smidge of time to give back! WOO! No rest for the un-wicked!
Support Mark, support The Trevor Project, and make a difference this weekend!
