National LGBTQ Task Force Gala Hosts

By Charlotte Robinson, September 29, 2023

Latrice Royale & Dyllón Burnside will be co-hosting the 27th National LGBTQ Task Force Gala that 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. Latrice Royale earned the title of “Miss Congeniality” on Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Dyllón Burnside first captivated audiences with his Broadway debut starring as Anthony in 2014’s Holler if Ya Hear Me a hip-hop musical inspired by the music & lyrics of Tupac Shakur. As we previously announced actress, model & activist Dominique Jackson will receive the 2023 National Leadership Award. 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.” 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.
