More Details

Nine years ago Anna DeShawn, Founder/CEO of E3 Radio & Co-Founder of The Qube decided to celebrate her 30th birthday by starting an annual benefit to help support her favorite nonprofits. Over the years E3 Radio has given over $10,000 to various community based organizations in the Chicagoland area. These organizations include Affinity Community Services, the Church within a Church Movement, Project Fierce, the Youth Empowerment Performance Project, A Long Walk Home, The Chicago Black Gay Men's Caucus & Sisters in Cinema.

The Purple Tie Affair is special because we showcase musical artists, drag performers and one-of-a-kind silent auction items. The people arrive in their beest purple representing their version of fly so we can party with a purpose. When you arrive at the Purple Tie be ready to purchase some amazing pieces of art, buy some raffle tickets, and enjoy great entertainment.


About Chicago Therapy Collective

Chicago Therapy Collective (CTC) promotes city-wide accountability and action to alleviate LGBTQIA health disparities and advance our collective health and wellbeing through education, therapy, advocacy and the arts.

Their flagship campaign, Trans-Inclusive Chicago, focuses on uplifting Trans communities and challenges Chicago organizations to Get Trained, Get Feedback and Hire Trans Now.

CTC’s mission is rooted in the intimate awareness apparent in therapy and other disciplines that the mental health struggles of LGBTQIA people, especially QTBIPOC (Queer Trans Black Indigenous People of Color), are the result of systemic, intersecting injustices that need attention beyond the therapy room and within the relationships, organizations and communities to which those QTBIPOC community members belong.

Since 2018, CTC has produced numerous art exhibitions, performance and storytelling nights, direct action and advocacy events, and tailored training and consultations that center the leadership and lived experiences of QTBIPOC community members. To inspire collective, cross-community engagement and action, CTC encourages neighbors, coworkers, friends and loved ones to join the Collective and support collective efforts in building a more safe, just and inclusive Chicago for QTBIPOC communities
