“So many members of the LGBT community and friends are coming together and donating their time, talents, and money toward this event,” OMG co-owner Rakesh Modi said in a Facebook message. “It’s an epic event that brings together the community in a show of solidarity and support for the victims.”

Typhoon Haiyan made landfall November 7 in the Philippines, killing thousands of people and displacing millions.

Sunday’s fundraiser will feature DJs, comics, drag performances, and raffles. All of the net proceeds will be donated to the San Francisco-based Rainbow World Fund. The nonprofit has been working with the international CARE organization to help provideĀ  emergency food, safe water, plastic for shelter, and other aid.

More information about the OMG event is available on Facebook.

Several other groups are also raising money for victims of the typhoon.
