2018 Highlights Video

Produced by Bonnelly Films.

The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala – Miami 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 iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, October 19, 2019. Once again, the evening will feature a cocktail reception, a silent auction, a formal dinner, live entertainment, an awards ceremony, dancing, and more.

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