Join us online for our first-ever statewide virtual celebration!

Join us on Sunday, September 13, 2020 as we celebrate our community achievements and honor the inspirational leaders whose selfless work helps create a world that is healthy, just and fully equal for all LGBTQ+ people, at the first-ever statewide virtual celebration, the Golden State Equality Awards!

This historic virtual event will start with regional pre-show programs celebrating our LGBTQ+ and allied communities in Sacramento, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs. Then we will bring everyone together from across California (and beyond!) to highlight pro-equality champions throughout the state and enjoy exclusive performances. Sponsors and select individual ticket levels will also receive a special gift box to help bring the celebration home!
