STOCKBRIDGE — A celebration of the LGBTQ community bloomed at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens.

Over the weekend, the Stockbridge-based nonprofit organization played host to a fairy-themed costume and drag party for the queer community of Berkshire County and its allies.

The event, “A Midsummer Night’s Queen,” was dreamed up by Great Barrington resident Hallie Evans as a way to bring different groups within the local LGBTQ umbrella together in one celebratory space, said Evans. The event was one of two events held in Southern Berkshire County during Pride month.
