"A lot of things can happen in 25 years, but who would’ve thought that seven guys dancing on a bar could grow into an annual event that has raised so much to help people living with HIV and AIDS," Mitchell said. "Broadway Bares has done that. And this year we’re going full out, maybe even with a top hat and our version of tails, ’cause if, baby, you’re a bottom, you’re the top."
