Los Angeles LGBT Center Gala

By Charlotte Robinson, September 23, 2018
The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 49th Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards honored Ricky Martin, Greg Berlanti & Robbie Rogers & Ariadne Getty at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California. Lorri L. Jean, CEO of the Los Angeles LGBT Center stated, “For 49 years, your Center has achieved so much that so many thought was impossible, fulfilling our most spectacular & magnificent ambitions for our organization & our people. What is more spectacular than freedom? What is more magnificent than being there for each other? All of you are a vital part of our Center’s courageous, resilient & visionary history. We & all who have preceded us ARE the Center. A Center that is more than buildings; more than a collection of social services; more than soldiers for equality & justice. We are the stuff that dreams are made of. We are the best that people can be: kind, passionate, generous, hopeful & hilarious living our lives honestly & caring for our fellow human beings. We are exactly what the world needs more of right now.” The evening concluded with Ricky Martin stating, “The inspiration comes from my kids, because when I held them for the first time, I knew I could not lie. I always teach them to be honest. I’ve been fighting human trafficking for many years with my own foundation & every human rights issue is connected. My mission is to go to those little Latin American towns where the word ‘gay’ is a curse & I am going to end this. Little by little, we’re taking steps to keep forcing this issue.” The event was hosted by Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos. Since 1969 the Los Angeles LGBT Center has cared for, championed & celebrated LGBT individuals & families in Los Angeles & beyond.
