Tony Award nominee Justin Vivian Bond, Taylor Mac, Bridget Everett and Cole Escola will be part of a Nov. 25 benefit concert at Joe's Pub to raise funds for New York City's Ali Forney Center, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy.



The Ali Forney Center provides housing and services to at-risk and homeless LGBT youth. The Center's drop-in location in West Chelsea, which offers food, showers, mental health and substance abuse services, as well as HIV testing and treatment, was destroyed when water from the Hudson River flooded the space.

The 7 PM concert, co-presented by the The After The Storm Foundation, promises an ever-growing line-up of performers including Nath Ann Carrera, Quinn Cox, Brett Every, Dan Fishback, Joesph Keckler, Lady Rizo, Yair Evnine and Matt Ray.

The goal is to raise $10,000 that evening. Tickets are currently priced $25. Donations can also be made at aliforneycenter.org.

For tickets visit JoesPub. Joe's Pub is located within the Public Theater at 425 Lafayette Street.
