By Charlotte Robinson, September 13, 2023

The National LGBTQ Task Force 27th annual Gala takes place on October 14th at the fabulous Grand Ballroom of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Celebrating 50 years of activism the Gala is the premier annual celebration of South Florida’s LGBTQ community & serves as a night for LGBTQ people & allies to unite as a community, honor heroes of the LGBTQ rights movement & support the work of advancing equality for all LGBTQ people & their families. This year actress, model & activist Dominique Jackson best known for her lead role as Electrabel Abundance Evangelista Wintour aka Elektra in the hit show Pose on FX will receive the 2023 National Leadership Award an honor awarded each year to an advocate who has helped further the Task Force’s mission to advance freedom, justice & full equality for all LGBTQ people. Michael Bath, The Task Force Events Director stated, “It is crucial that we let our community know that we stand with them wherever they live & that we are committed to ensuring that even the highest obstacles to equality are confronted & toppled. It is my hope that the Task Force, working in conjunction with state & local partners in Florida, will be able to effect real change in the state, making it a safe place for all LGBTQ people & their families to live.” The presenting sponsor for the 2023 Gala is St. John’s on the Lake United Methodist Church. Funds raised by this year’s Gala will fuel the organization’s work to advance the rights & security of LGBTQ people across the country with a significant portion of the proceeds donated to the South Florida community through the LGBTQ+ Equity Fund.
