The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala - Miami, formerly the Miami Recognition Dinner, is an important South Florida tradition. It not only allows the LGBTQ community and its supporters to honor our heroes, it also provides a vital source of funding for the community on the local and national levels. The event is produced by the National LGBTQ Task Force, the oldest national organization dedicated to advancing full freedom for LGBTQ people, and also benefits many organizations serving the Miami-Dade LGBTQ community.
