Issa Rae Hosted a Star-Studded Yacht Party (Again!)

Issa Rae’s yacht celebration appears to be turning into an annual affair, and this year’s installment looked like quite the party!

The “Insecure” star shared photos of the summer fun, where guests like Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Logan Browning, Dewanda Wise, Keith Powers, Ryan Destiny, Sujata Day and Amanda Seales turned up to enjoy the nautical fete. Oh, and Miguel came through for an “impromptu performance.”

Issa captured the moment on camera, captioning the photo, “#YachtS— the III with my day ones. Thank you so much to everyone who came through ready to drink and dance. And thank you especially to the legendary @miguel for an impromptu performance that made my life. Whew.”

Gabrielle Union posted her own pics from the day, writing, “Strong Black Leads. Write This Movie.”

Issa Rae threw a pre-Emmys #yachtsh— party last summer to celebrate the black nominees with pals like Tiffany Haddish and Tracee Ellis Ross. In 2017, she kicked off the second season of “Insecure” with the yachting bash.

She explained, “I did one last year because I was like, ‘I want to do that s— with my friends. And I was like, 'Oh my god, I can do that!’ This year, it ended up being on Emmy weekend and I ended up being nominated, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is a celebration for everybody and their accomplishments.'"
