On May 16, 2004, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Americans and their allies will be celebrating.

This is the historic night before Massachusetts grants equal marriage rights to same-sex couples. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is sponsoring "A Night to Create Change" so supporters of marriage equality can turn their enthusiasm into activism. The Task Force will join all the parties together in a nationwide conference call as Task Force executive director Matt Foreman gives a "State of the Unions" address. Foreman will be joined by other special guests.

It's not too late to register as a host. Hosting is a fun and easy way to raise both awareness and funds in the fight for LGBT equality. We're asking hosts to set a fundraising goal of $500 or $1,000 for their events.

The mission of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is to build the political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community from the ground up. We do this by training activists, organizing broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda and advance pro-LGBT legislation, and by building the organizational capacity of our movement. Our Policy Institute, the movement’s premier think tank, provides research and policy analysis to support the struggle for complete equality and to counter right-wing lies. As part of a broader social justice movement, we work to create a nation that respects the diversity of human expression and identity and creates opportunity for all. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., we also have offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis and Cambridge.
