SHARE Jennifer Hudson to speak, hear her music at free LGBT party

Jennifer Hudson — both the real one and some uncanny duplicates — will be part of a free event next week in support of LGBT equality.

The Oscar and Grammy winner is scheduled to speak at Turn It Up for Change, a fundraising and awareness party at Altitude in W Chicago-Lakeshore, 664 N. Lake Shore. She’ll be part of a lineup that includes DJ White Shadow, Terry White and Hudson impersonations by drag queen Shea Coulee and trans advocate Precious Davis.

Admission is free and first-come-first-serve at the event at 9 p.m. Wednesday. It’s presented in partnership with W Hotels and the Human Rights Campaign.
