The stunning event transports guests to the Bridgerton series through glorious set recreations, which happen to be ideal places for iconic photos to treasure forever. We suggest making a stop at the magical Wisteria tunnel, Madame Delacroix’s shop, The Modiste, and, of course, the iconic ballroom with a grand chandelier and dance floor.
While the beautiful Bridgerton experience just closed its doors in LA and Chicago, it can still be experienced in D.C. and Montreal, and this July, it will welcome guests in San Francisco and Atlanta.
Not only is this ball inclusive for all, but it was a transformative experience for a few of our standout ‘Diamonds’ from the LGBTQ+ community who graced us with their presence at The Queen’s Ball. We caught up with a few of these esteemed guests and asked what it meant to them to be chosen by Her Majesty at the most exquisite soiree of the season…and we couldn’t be more moved by their responses!
“Being chosen as ‘Diamond’ of the evening at the Bridgerton Experience was my mission. I wanted to stand out in a graceful and majestic way, and I am glad the Queen saw my efforts. When I was chosen, it felt amazing because the love in the room carried throughout the night until the final moment when the Queen chose me. When the confetti fell all over me, I felt like Beyonce at the end of her shows! I was filled with so much joy, and it meant everything to represent the LGBTQ+ Community on that platform, while looking stunning as the ‘Diamond’ of the evening.” – Oba Crosswire
“I was pretty shocked to be named the ‘Diamond’ of the evening at the Bridgerton Experience. As a trans non-binary person, I have done a lot of work to see myself as beautiful, even though I don’t fit the description for what the majority of the world believes to be beautiful. As trans people, we don’t win beauty competitions, and we’re not chosen as the belle of the ball, but when the Queen pointed to me, and the performers led me to the center of the floor, it broke down some of the walls I didn’t realize I had built up. For a night, I got to live that fantasy that I thought was reserved only for cisgender, heterosexual people. Other trans people have messaged me to say how much it meant to them to see someone like them being called the ‘Diamond,’ and I think that has been the most special part of it for me. Because at the end of the day, representation matters, in all shapes and forms, and I got to be a little part of that. It was a moment of such gender euphoria that I will remember and treasure for a long, long time.” – Parker Guidry
“Bridgerton is no exception to the genius that Shonda Rhimes produces! This show in itself is a crossroads between more relevant stories and fresher representation for other identities within a time period that has been overdone time and time again. This experience was another torch that illuminated the importance that this show holds, not just for us but for an entire array of people who often get overlooked within the intersectional LGBTQ+ and POC communities. This is OUR moment as a community to seize the day! The only word that truly wraps up the recognition of this experience is surreal. The way the entire night still exists within myself can never be taken away by any single person because it felt as if that was meant for me. This experience reminds me every day that I must show the world who I am without a single hint of hesitation. The experience was like nothing I have ever felt before, and I will remember it for the rest of my life.” – Matthea Nava
