Annual Miami Gala Raises $630 Thousand to Advance Justice & Equality for LGBTQ People!

Over 750 lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) advocates and allies attended this year’s annual National LGBTQ Task Force Gala – Miami held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, October 24. Presented by Wells Fargo, the annual awards dinner honors individuals for their significant contributions to securing full equality for LGBTQ people. Proceeds from the event, which brought in over $600 thousand dollars, support the work of South Florida organizations providing direct services to LGBTQ people as well as the National LGBTQ Task Force’s advocacy, organizing and training work.
