Praise the Lord! Wow! Months of waiting and days of traveling to nyc and auditioning was hectic, but it was worth it. It’s kind of surreal Jon M. Chu and Christopher Scott were also a part of the team in the movie Step Up 2 that inspired me to become a dancer!! 10 year old Reina is literally in a state of shock, it feels like it was just 2009 and I was sitting in front of the tv wishing I could be dancing in that tv screen. Now I get to be a part of a film that kids today especially New Yorkers will be inspired by!! Thank you to the entire creative team for allowing me to a part of this amazing experience! God I thank you for the ways in which you shape me into a better artist, servant, woman of God, and use my gifts to shed light on your kingdom✨👑 #ChildofGod #20&glowing #Latina #Afrolatina #Puertorico #boricua #intheheightsfilm #newyorker #dancer #movie #Film #linManuelMiranda #warnerbrospictures #InTheHeightsMovie

Launched in June 2011, Broadway Sings for Pride grew out of the tragic suicides which plague the gay community. We have received support from Neil Patrick Harris, Channing Tatum, Fran Drescher, Carol Channing, Frankie Grande, Bryan Cranston, Kathy Griffin, LeAnn Rimes, Bernadette Peters, Nathan Lane, Joy Behar, Wendy Williams and many others. Broadway Sings for Pride stages concerts and events that bring to light the challenges faced in the LGBTQ community, using the funds raised from these programs to aid LGBTQ youth and their families either directly or through supporting like-minded service organizations. We have been honored by Wagner College (Citizen Alum Award 2015 Honoree), Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival’s 2015 Non-Profit Organization All-Star Award, Tyler Clementi Foundation The Upstander Legacy Honoree Host Committee Member, and a four-time nominee for “Most Valuable Campaign” & “Most Valuable Organizer” from the New Organizing Institute.  Find out more on Instagram (Broadway Sings for Pride), Facebook (Broadway Sings for Pride) or on our website: www.BroadwaySingsForPride.com.
