Impact of the Task Force Gala

The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala has been an important South Florida tradition for a quarter of century. It allows the LGBTQ community and its supporters to come together and celebrate, honor heroes of the movement, and raise money for the community on both the local and national levels. The event is produced by, and in support of, the National LGBTQ Task Force. We are committed to forward-thinking progressive change, both locally and nationally. Proceeds from the 2021 Gala will fuel the Task Force’s “All of Me, All the Time” campaign, a nationwide effort to educate elected officials and the general public about the urgent need for federal non-discrimination protections. The Task Force also donates a significant portion of the proceeds raised at the Gala and its sister event, Winter Party Festival, to like-minded community advocacy groups in South Florida, through a grant-making process administered by the LGBTQ Community Fund of The Miami Foundation. In 2020, the Task Force donated $257,000 to the Miami Foundation, money which was then distributed to 11 local LGBTQ organizations doing work on behalf of transgender youth, seniors, and people of color in the community. Since 2005, we’ve given back more than $3.3 million and supported nearly 90 community organizations in South Florida. The money we raise and give away is made possible only through your support. This money plays an essential role in empowering and elevating the community.
