Longtime LGBT activists George & Brad Takei, Marvel Entertainment, and Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky will be honored at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 45th Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards in Los Angeles on November 8th at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, presented by Wells Fargo. The high-profile annual event will celebrate the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 45th anniversary of making the world a better place for LGBT people.
“As we celebrate the 45th anniversary of the world’s largest provider of programs and services for LGBT people, we’re excited to honor some very deserving Super Heroes in our movement,” said Los Angeles LGBT Center CEO Lorri L. Jean. “George and Brad Takei are two of the nation’s most visible, dedicated and influential LGBT activists. Throughout his four decades of services to Los Angeles, County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has been a fierce champion for LGBT people and strong ally to the Center. And Marvel Entertainment, through its award-winning portrayals of LGBT characters and storylines that parallel the struggle to end discrimination against our community, has helped brighten the lives of LGBT kids—and adults alike—around the world.”
One of the premier LGBT charity events in the nation, the Center’s Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards will bring together more than 1,200 LGBT people and their allies to enjoy cocktails, dinner and entertainment, while saluting some superheroes in the LGBT movement. The evening also features an extensive auction that includes high-end items, packages and experiences.
