By Charlotte Robinson, April 24, 2020
Equality Florida will host “Equality LIVE,” an online virtual variety show Sunday April 26th from 12:30P to 8P EST on Equality Florida’s Facebook page & YouTube channel. The event will spotlight five Florida communities that were forced to cancel annual galas due to COVID-19 & will feature a powerhouse 60-minute show from 7P to 8P EST with a special message from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren & a statewide update & call to action from Equality Florida Executive Director Nadine Smith. Smith stated, “Equality LIVE is a place for our community to connect, help each other in the midst of a crisis & prepare for important battles ahead for LGBTQ equality. Even as we respond to the pandemic, we know that anti-LGBTQ attacks continue & that we have to be in a strong position to mobilize pro-equality voters in November.” Joining “Equality LIVE” special guests confirmed include Latin Grammy Award Winner Nestor Torres, Jeanette Jennings, Florida State Senator Jason Pizzo, Florida State Representative Shevrin Jones, Florida State Representative Amy Mercado, Florida State Representative Carlos Guillermo Smith, Florida State Representative Jennifer Webb, Key West Mayor Teri Johnston, Monroe County Mayor Heather Carruthers, Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman, Broward County Superintendent Robert Runcie, Attorney Elizabeth Schwartz, Dr. Julie C. Servoss, Calvin Arsenia, Vashai Avionce, Colleen Orender, Matthew McGee, Jennifer Real, Yoli Mayor & Quixotic. Smith concluded, “COVID-19 is disproportionately impacting LGBTQ youth, the transgender community, people living with HIV & all marginalized communities. Equality LIVE is an opportunity for community leaders to join us in discussing how we respond to those urgent needs.”
