National LGBTQ Task Force Gala

Saturday, October 14, at the Miami Beach Convention Center

The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala is the premier annual celebration of South Florida’s LGBTQ+ community. The Gala is a night for LGBTQ+ people and their supporters to unite as a community, honor our heroes, and support the work of advancing equality for all LGBTQ+ people and their families. The National LGBTQ Task Force produces the event.

Among the attendees is a woman wearing a striking black dress, adding an elegant touch to the occasion. The vibrant and dynamic scene is filled with laughter and camaraderie as the guests revel in the festivities. The composition of the photograph creates a sense of unity and togetherness, with the participants forming the centerpiece of the event.
