Alec Mapa

Alec Mapa is an award-winning actor, comedian, playwright, and journalist whose Broadway, television, and film career spans more than twenty years. If you think that’s a long time, just imagine how Alec feels. Luckily, he’s Filipino, which means he’ll look thirty when he’s fifty, fifty when he’s seventy, and by the time he’s eighty he’ll be too pooped to care.

Alec’s professional career started in shortly after graduating from NYU when he starred in a Tony Award–winning Broadway play M. Butterfly opposite Tony Randall, before hitting the road with the first national touring company. Alec was certain the minute the tour landed in Los Angeles he’d become a big fat star. He was wrong.

Unemployed for nearly three years, Alec was flat broke, had a nervous breakdown, and had to start all over again. He turned his career crises into the hilarious one-man show, I Remember Mapa. Alec’s tragic-comic monologue of triumph and loss won the LA Weekly award for Best Solo show, enjoyed a successful run in Los Angeles, and has since played to sold-out houses in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, and Seattle. By speaking about the horrors of being unemployed, Alec found plenty of work as an actor, guest starring on shows like Friends, Roseanne, NYPD Blue, Seinfeld, and Melrose Place.

As an out gay actor of Filipino descent, Mapa has long worked for causes benefiting AIDS and the gay, lesbian, and Asian-American communities, including HRC, The Matthew Shepard Foundation, Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services (GLASS), Project Angel Food, AIDS Project Los Angeles, and Lambda Legal. For his dedication, Mapa was recently honored with the East West Visionary Award, the Rand Schraeder Distinguished Achievement Award from the Gay and Lesbian Center of Los Angeles, and the Davidson/Valentini Award from GLADD, and he was nominated for a Maggie Award for his editorial columns for The Advocate. Mapa was the 2005 Grand Marshal of the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade and one of Out magazine's "Top Out One Hundred" in 2004. Is it any wonder he’s “America’s Gay Asian Sweetheart”? Of course not, it’s no wonder at all.

Anne Steele

Anne Steele is a multi-award-winning singer-songwriter from NYC. She has been touring the United States and abroad since the release of her EP of original music, Made Out of Stars, in January 2019. Anne also toured extensively domestically and internationally following the release of her first EP of original music, What’s Mine, in 2015.

Anne recently performed alongside Cyndi Lauper at the Home for The Holidays concert at The Beacon Theater in NYC for the True Colors Fund. And all proceeds of Anne’s single “Love Can Take Us There,” released in 2016, benefitted the victims of The Pulse Nightclub shooting. The single was chosen as the official Provincetown Carnival Anthem for 2016.

In reviewing Anne’s newest album in Curve magazine, Editor in Chief Merryn Johns said, “After listening to this EP, Made Out of Stars, I'm convinced that Steele herself is made out of heavenly, cosmic stuff. Sporting a million-watt smile, a voice as clear and bright as a bell, and a heart of gold, Steele’s music sounds like a good friend—the kind you call when you need lifting up. One of the pleasures of female-driven pop is its ability to tap into the anthem of the self: the best female pop vocalists amplify positive feelings and give us hope that we can transcend obstacles. And when music’s as good as Made Out of Stars, I think we all get to shine a little.”
