Who We ARE
Kaleidoscope Collaborations is the brainchild of New York drag personality Witti Repartee and bon vivant Nick DiCeglie. It was founded in the summer of 2015 to serve as a platform for individuals wanting a place to be creative, charitable and collaborative.
In addition to producing its own benefits, Kaleidoscope Collaborations can consult, design and help promote your work for the community. We can help pair up artists with organizations and find the perfect fit for your event.
Witti Repartee is a Queen (NYC Gay Men’s Chorus 2002-2003), an Empress (Imperial Court of New York, 2012-2013) and an Angel (Team Eagle, Cycle for the Cause 2013-current). Since 1997, she has called New York City her home base as a cabaret and burlesque artist, where she has appeared at more than 500 events as a performer, a volunteer or a guest of honor. Currently, she reigns as Queen of the New York Leathermen.
She produces several shows each year for local charities, including her annual 39th Birthday Celebrations and "Witti Repartee's Broads, Bawds and Bachelorettes." She produced and hosted “The Gayest Link” at Hannah’s Lava Lounge and has been a regular performer and guest host at “The Will Clark Show, featuring Porno Bingo.” As a headliner, Witti has been lauded by gala audiences not only in NYC, but also in Washington DC, Lexington, Kentucky, Anchorage, Alaska and San Francisco, California. As a hostess, she counts the Ninth and Tenth “Bad Boys on the Hudson” cruises, New York’s Leather Pride Night XXX and XXXI, Folsom Street East XVII, Halloween at the New York Eagle, and countless fundraisers, special events and performances in HIV residences among her accomplishments. In 2015, she was part of a team at the Metropolitan Room in New York City to earn the Guinness Book World Record for "Longest Variety Show." During the day, she serves as the Director of Development and Social Media for one of New York City's larger HIV Service Organizations.
