San Francisco Equality Awards

By Charlotte Robinson, March 03, 2016
Equality California will honor U.S. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, actor & activist George Takei, businessperson & philanthropist Kathy Levinson & former San Francisco Supervisor & civic leader Bevan Dufty at the 2016 San Francisco Equality Awards for their extraordinary service to the LGBT community. The awards will take place on Saturday, April 2nd at the Westin St. Francis on Union Square. Rick Zbur, Executive Director of Equality California stated, “House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi truly sets the standard for everything an LGBT ally should be. She was one of the first members of Congress to not just oppose LGBT discrimination, but to openly advocate for us, long before it was politically safe or expedient to support our community. She has never wavered in her advocacy for the LGBT community. The boldness of her support on the national stage has helped ease the way for the enormous progress we have made since then at every level of government. George Takei has served as an example & role model, not only for the LGBT community but for everyone seeking to live an open, engaged & authentic life. Throughout his life, George has refused to accept anything other than full equality for LGBT people, for immigrants & for all disadvantaged communities. His dignity, humor & commitment to social justice has made him one of our community’s leaders & most prominent voices. His warmth & courage are an inspiration to all of us.”
