Ebony Pyramid Entertainment
Yesterday! Today! Tomorrow!


Ebony Pyramid Entertainment was founded in 2000 in Washington, DC by a veteran entertainer and businessman, DaJuan Patrick Xavier. Ebony Pyramid Entertainment (EPE) was established as a subsidiary of NEMO, Inc., a 31 year old incorporated entertainment production company. EPE was formed to primarily serve the African-American Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community’s entertainment needs on an upscale level. In addition to providing quality services to its supporters, EPE wanted to dedicated and generate charitable funds for HIV/AIDS organizations, female health and welfare concerns, Gay and Lesbian outreach programs, and African-American wellness.

In its first year, EPE launched its event, “The Black Gay and Lesbian Pride: Caribbean Cruisin’ – Bahamas.” The vision of the event was to create a social and networking venue, such as Prides held in major cities, but to do it on a cruise. Although the description of the event stated “Black” and “LGBT” it did not mean that it was exclusively for that group, but that everyone is invited to join and celebrate the Pride. This was proven true, as many guests brought their family members, friends, and children to the cruise event. The cruise event has been a great success. In the cruise’s first year, there were 35 guests, the second year grew to 50 guests, and the third year jumped to a miraculous number of 250 guests, and maintained a level of approximately 500 EPE registered and non-registered guests., plus its local Pre-Cruise and host country attendees.

In 2012, EPE reorganized and discontinued Caribbean Cruisin event. The cruise event was replaced by Project Destination Pride (PDP) to expand the travel possibilities to other than just cruise. To include the Caribbean Cruisin’ years along with PDP, it is referenced as the “EPE Travel Series”.

The strong point of the EPE cruise and PDP events is its quality entertainers. EPE has had the privilege to have some of the top African-American LGBT performers, from across the country, as cast members. Because EPE’s initial goal was to provide quality entertainment, it sought to make everyone a star when it created its slogan, “Where You’re The Main Attraction!”

EPE also produced and supported other ventures such as the EPE Pageantry System, EPE Talent Showcase, traveling Pride receptions, and Bayou Fest – New Orleans, Louisiana. EPE had the honor to host Bayou Fest, months prior to the tragic and unforgettable levy break. EPE has also supported and sponsored various Pride events in DC, New York, Philadelphia, Houston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Memphis, Dallas, and Chicago.

EPE has also supported LGBTQ youth programs, AIDS Walk, HRC, NAACP, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on The Mall, breast cancer awareness, and a list of others.

EPE’s upcoming events include the Gay and Lesbians to Benefit a Life (GLOBAL) Affair, Just As I Am Awards, EPE retail store, Mr. & Miss International Icon Pageantry System, and much more.
