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 returns to the Sparkle Ballroom at the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, October 7, 2017. The evening will feature a cocktail reception, a sit-down dinner, a silent auction, an awards ceremony, and dancing. Last year we came together to enjoy an evening hosted by Alec Mapa, America’s Gaysian Sweetheart, accompanied by the talented and stunning broadway singer, Beth Malone.

There are many ways you, or your company/organization, can support the Task Force Gala:

No matter how you choose to show your support, the Task Force and our volunteer event committee appreciate your support. Thank you!
