Where we came from

OUR FOUNDER

Justin Hucke is an active member of the LGBTQ+ community. Having started several businesses, and participated in both public and private sectors, he works to bring people together, help grow businesses, and consult for small businesses and nonprofits.

In 2021, Justin started the Wigs & Waffles event to benefit LGBTQ+ youth in Cincinnati. Having raised nearly $100,000 for Lighthouse Youth & Family Services, he has expanded his reach through Cincy Drag Brunch.

Justin is a native Cincinnatian. If Justin isn’t raising money for nonprofits or consulting, he spends time with his dog, Frank, working to connect people, and even slays on the pickleball court.

OUR story

It all began with a drink in hand…

What started out as a brainstorming session about a Pride-themed charitable happy hour quickly evolved into our first drag brunch in 2021. Our first Wigs & Waffles in June 2021 with 250+ attendees raised over $35,000. We quickly picked back up to plan the 2022 event, raising over $60,000 with 350+ attendees. Realizing we could do more good for more people in the Greater CIncinnati area, we’ve expanded our reach to multiple events, all benefiting local LGBTQ+ organizations.

We can do so much good, together.
