Last year when City Paper published its very first Pink Issue, we decided a portion of the paper's proceeds would go to the nonprofit featured on the cover. This year, with Congress and the president more adamant than ever before about defunding Planned Parenthood, we decided to feature the health-care provider on the cover.

But rather than just provide a portion of the  proceeds, we decided to hold a benefit for Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania at the Glitter Box Theater. Local artists Childlike Empress and Merlette donated their time and talents to the fundraiser. Both shared stories of why the organization was important to them. Childlike Empress shared her story in the Pink Issue.

In addition to music, there were crafts, conversation and great food from the Franktuary Truck and beer from Roundabout Brewing. Thanks to all those who came out to perform, donate and support the event.
