Equality Florida Virtual Gala Event

By Charlotte Robinson, October 26, 2020

Equality Florida will honor State Representative Anna V. Eskamani with a Voice For Equality Award at its Virtual Greater Orlando Gala on Friday October 30th with livestream beginning at 8P via Facebook & YouTube. The Voice for Equality Award is bestowed annually upon a person who with courage, passion & unwavering commitment moves Florida’s LGBTQ community closer to full equality. Nadine Smith Equality Florida Executive Director stated, “Representative Eskamani has been an unwavering accomplice for the LGBTQ community. Both in her career as an advocate & as a member of the Florida House of Representatives, she has been unapologetic in her demand that LGBTQ Floridians be afforded the same dignity, respect & protections as everyone else. We are proud to work alongside her to make equality the law of the land & are thrilled to recognize her as one of this year’s Voices for Equality.” Equality Florida will also recognize outgoing One Orlando Alliance Executive Director Jennifer Foster with the Voice For Equality Award. Jennifer aided in creating the Alliance following the Pulse Nightclub tragedy in 2016. Since becoming its Executive Director in 2018 the One Orlando Alliance has grown to over 40 member organizations united around community-centric initiatives designed to ensure Central Florida remains inclusive & safe for LGBTQ people. Brandon Wolf, Pulse Nightclub shooting survivor & Equality Florida Media Relations Manager stated, “Jennifer helped to galvanize this community in the wake of the tragedy at Pulse. Thanks to her big-hearted leadership, LGBTQ organizations that once worked in siloes were able to come together & reshape the path forward for Central Florida. We all owe an immense debt of gratitude to Jennifer - a true champion.” For More Info & Tix: eqfl.org
