Chris Ladas | He/him | Associated Events Director
A Chicago native, Chris has been in Miami for 15 years, attending and volunteering for the Task Force for the past 5 years. Last year, Chris joined the Executive Committee and utilized his experience in the events world to help execute kick-off events and the after party. Chris has a passion for all things food/wine and travel. He spends his summers in Greece where his family is from and the rest of the year looking forward to that time. Chris has a passion for giving back to his community, as he works with My Hollywood Pride, The National LGBTQ Task Force, and is a Board Member of The Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Chris recently got married, thus recognizing the importance of support for the LGBTQ+ community.
“Being part of the Task Force Gala means everything to me, not only because of the work we do and the causes we support, but the friendships that are created along the way. I have made many new friends, met incredibly people, and accomplished something incredible for a cause that is of vital importance at this moment in time for our country. Queer the Vote literally means equality and maintenance of our current rights and protections, such as my right to marry (which I just did!)”
