Special Events

Every year Family Equality provides opportunities for our supporters to celebrate together, enjoy entertainment, and raise funds to advance our work, ranging from galas to intimate gatherings at the homes of our supporters.

We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming special events.

LA Impact: A Night of Heroes

Saturday, October 15 | Paramount Studios

Family Equality’s LA Impact makes its triumphant return this October, and we need you there more than ever! With the rise in anti-LGBTQ+ bills, it’s going to take all of us harnessing our collective powers to fight for families across the country.

Join us for a “super” special evening celebrating our real-life heroes: LGBTQ+ families and those who have championed our rights.
