Gloria Estefan To Be Honored

By Charlotte Robinson, August 25, 2017
Grammy winning superstar & fierce LGBTQ ally Gloria Estefan will be honored at the 2017 National LGBTQ Task Force Gala in Miami, Florida. The annual fundraising event will take place at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Saturday, October 7th at 6:30P. Estefan will be presented with the National Leadership Award for her work to support LGBTQ people & the issues that affect our lives everyday. Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force stated, “Every day, the National LGBTQ Task Force fights the injustices happening around the country. From challenging the Texas legislature’s attempt to discriminate against trans youth to standing side by side with our allies in Charlottesville to confront white supremacists to countering the barrage of anti-LGBTQ actions coming from the current administration, every day is a fight. But for one night in Miami we will step back to celebrate our community, our allies and leaders. We are humbled to have Gloria Estefan join us in this fight & proud to honor such an exceptional leader & ally for the LGBTQ community at the Task Force Gala – Miami. We know the next day we will continue the fight for full freedom, justice & equality for LGBTQ people around the country & in South Florida, energized by coming together in Miami in solidarity & love.” Also being honored this year at the Task Force Gala - Miami are local heroes, Alberto Arias & Wood Kinnard, who will be presented the 2017 Eddy McIntyre Community Service Award.
