Night of 100 Dinners
Celebrate the LGBTQ Community and its allies at the Task Force’s fourth annual Night of 100 Dinners event. This unique fundraising event offers an evening of small dinner parties throughout Los Angeles followed by a boisterous dessert/award party where you meet, greet, dish about dinner and network with a passionate crowd committed to honoring heroes and advancing the movement. Rea Carey, the Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force will be on hand to talk about the state of the movement and to answer any questions.
Proceeds from the Night of 100 Dinners will go towards the Creating Change Scholarship Fund. Creating Change is our community’s premier skill-building conference and the largest annual gathering of the LGBTQ community and our allies.
Back in 1994 the founders of Winter Party Festival decided to invite the LGBT community to a party on the sands of South Beach.
Now 20 years later that one night has turned into a Task Force produced six-day celebration that attracts people from all over the world. While many people might think the Winter Party Festival is a lot of parties, that’s not the whole picture. Sure, people come to have fun. And they do have fun – a lot of it! But the real purpose is serious.
The National Conference for LGBT Equality: Creating Change is our premier annual event. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind organizing and skills-building event for the LGBTQ community and our allies.
Creating Change was started in 1988, one year after the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. The message of the 1987 March was clear: go home and get to work. It was because of this message that the Task Force soon found itself deluged with requests for resources, advice and assistance.
National LGBTQ Task Force Gala – Miami
The Task Force Recognition events were started in 1990 and they took place in Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Miami.
We created these dinners to pay tribute to the community leaders, allies, and organizations that fight for LGBTQ people through their leadership, advocacy, and action. Past honorees included Bella Abzug, Ted Kennedy, Coretta Scott King, Equality Fairfax, Margaret Cho, John Waters, and Tammy Baldwin.
