    PHOTOS – Halloweenie 16 Brought Peace, Love and Discoballs to Belasco Theater

    Fred & Jason’s Halloweenie 16 – Peace, Love, & Disco Balls sold out two weeks before showtime. The Party with a Purpose returned to the historic Belasco Theater for one of the biggest LGBTQ+ Halloween parties in Southern California, featuring two dance floors, photo experiences, drinks, food, live DJs, performances, and some of the sexiest costumes before Halloween night.

    It’s easy to forget the event is a fundraiser, this year benefiting Project Angel Food, which has been a benefactor in previous years.

    The dance floor was packed with all sorts of elaborate costumes and creatives forms of undress. From killer clowns, ballerinas, super heroes, or just guys wearing underwear, ​there was lots to see the entire night. There was also arial acrobatic performances throughout on stage.

    The event’s creators Fred Arens and Jason Duguay have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past for the Gay Men’s Chorus Los Angeles.
