NCLR Anniversary Celebration Event

By Charlotte Robinson, May 09, 2018
The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) is celebrating their 41st anniversary on May 19th at the Innovation Hangar at The Palace of Fine Arts at 3601 Lyon Street in San Francisco, California. NCLR's Anniversary Celebration includes a three-course dinner & a fabulous after party for 2,000 guests. This is a bittersweet celebration this year since Kate Kendell announced last month that she’ll be stepping down as Executive Director at the end of the year after 22 years at the helm. After a tenure marker by unimaginable leaps of progress with legalization of marriage equality, expansion of LGBTQ adoption & parental rights Kate will leave an organization that is stronger, louder & more determined than ever to rise up to defend the rights of all LGBTQ people. Kate Kendell stated, “My time at NCLR has widened my vistas & laid open my heart. I’ve been at the center of enormous NCLR victories, four at the U.S. Supreme Court, including the freedom to marry, a fight that was fanciful to me 22 years ago. Most importantly, I have been held up by so many. I would not be who I am without all of you. I have been unalterably marked by this work & by the many relationships that have brought me so much joy. I feel enormous gratitude to have been a part of the NCLR legacy, part of the history of the fight, still on-going, for full lived justice for all LGBTQ people. I am forever beholden to you all for making me better. The honor, truly, has been all mine.” NCLR was founded in 1977 with the commitment to advance the civil & human rights of our LGBTQ community & their families through litigation, legislation, policy & public education.
