The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala – Miami, presented by Wells Fargo, is an important South Florida tradition. It allows the LGBTQ community and its supporters to honor our heroes, while at the same time providing a vital source of funding for the community on both the local and national levels. The event is produced by the National LGBTQ Task Force, the oldest national organization dedicated to achieving equality for LGBTQ people, and also benefits dozens of organizations serving the Miami-Dade LGBTQ community.

The Task Force Gala – Miami returned to the Sparkle Ballroom at the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, November 19, 2016. The evening featured a cocktail reception, a sit-down dinner, a silent auction, an awards ceremony and dancing. We were with an evening hosted by Alec Mapa, America’s Gaysian Sweetheart, accompanied by the talented and stunning broadway singer, Beth Malone.
