27th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns


TMISM Emperor XXI Ritz Kraka & Empress XXVI Witti Repartee invite you to a most outrageous fantasy celebration!

Once a year the New York LGBT community comes together for a unique gala fund raiser--one that rises above all others for over-the-top glamour and fun. That event is The Imperial Court of New York’s Night of a Thousand Gowns, a black tie dinner dance and coronation ball. 2013 is our twenty-seventh outing & the beneficiaries will be GMHC and GLAAD!

The 27th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns is more than just a dazzling display of regal glamour, it is an opportunity to celebrate the LGBT community, and in particular, the colorful cross-dressing segment of that community. Last year’s event was attended by close to 1,000 affluent people and raised a substantial amount for our beneficiaries. In our twenty-five year history, the Court has donated over a million dollars to worthy LGBT and HIV/AIDS-related causes.
