The Straight for Equality Gala aims to honor and celebrate some amazing straight allies. Their selfless support of the LGBT community truly embodies the spirit of Straight for Equality and PFLAG. Our work could not continue without them, so we take time out each year to honor our straight allies.
2013 marked the fifth anniversary of the only national event dedicated to honoring the contributions of straight allies working to move equality forward for their LGBT friends and family. Thank you to all who helped to make the evening such a huge success.
