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

Thank you to our sponsors and supporters who helped make the 2020 Golden State Equality Awards a smashing success! Thanks to your generous support, our first-ever statewide event raised over $1.7 Million in support of Equality California’s mission to create a world that is healthy, just and fully equal for all LGBTQ+ people. More than 13,000 guests from five countries joined us as we honored pro-equality champions and danced (in our homes) to some stellar performances! On behalf of the countless people helped by your generosity, thank you!
