Artists Michael Wertz and Jody Morlock are among those to put their creative spin on Judy Garland for "Night of a Thousand Judys," the annual LGBT Pride Month benefit concert for New York's Ali Forney Center

The Huffington Post got an exclusive sneak peek at some of the many pieces, which capture Garland in "Meet Me in St. Louis" and other iconic moments in her esteemed career, that are set to be auctioned off at the June 6 event. 

Now in its sixth year, "Night of a Thousand Judys" will feature Garland-inspired performances by Lillias White, Annie Golden, Alice Ripley and Nathan Lee Graham, among other Broadway, cabaret and television stars.  

Proceeds from the event, which is hosted by writer-performer Justin Sayre, will benefit the Ali Forney Center, a New York advocacy group dedicated to homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. 

“Night of A Thousand Judys” plays New York’s Kaufman Music Center on June 6. Head here for more information.
