It has been twenty-five years… twenty-five years of advocating, educating and winning rights for the LGBT community. Since 1989, Forum for Equality has been a leader and champion in Louisiana.
We want to celebrate our 25th Anniversary with you at our Annual Acclaim Awards Gala on Friday, September 26th at the Westin New Orleans. As always, we will have an amazing evening with the hilarious Kristen Becker leading us through auctions, awards and amusements.

This year has been exceptional, and we get to celebrate our long history of change as well as the exciting projects we have planned for our future. Amazing actions are happening across Louisiana, and I am humbled to be a small part of this evolving story. Please join me on Friday, September 26th and revel in all that we have accomplished and will achieve in the future.
With Equality for All,
Executive Director, Forum for Equality
