Rainbow and Roll

Mother Nature’s feisty mood swings in December may have put the kibosh on Discovery’s Green’s annual Rainbow On Ice event, but that hasn’t put a damper on Mayor Sylvester Turner’s LGBTQ advisory board’s determination to celebrate Houston’s diversity. The board rescheduled the event for Avenida Houston’s newly opened roller rink with the apropos title Rainbow and Roll. Glide the night away in H-Town’s largest outdoor rink and let the good times roll. Performers are Houston’s own drag family, Crawford Nation, including female illusionists Aria, Linda D. and Alexia D., with Kris and Fidel performing as Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child. Putting the “disco” into Discovery is DJ Joe Ross. The park’s programming and communications coordinator, Lori San Miguel, tells us, “Houston is so diverse. We pride ourselves in being a place where GLBTQ and their families can come and celebrate.”

7 to 10 p.m. Friday. 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-434-7465 or visit discoverygreen.com/rainbow. Free to $14.
