There comes a time when The Diversity Center has an event that we all wish we knew about, so I’m letting it all come out! You guessed it! I’ll be revealing all the alluring details about The Diversity Center‘s Gala, happening next Saturday, October 17th!
If you have not yet heard of The Diversity Center, it’s a Santa Cruz-based organization that holds programs for folks from all spectrums of the LGBTQQIAP+ community. One of the center’s most widely-known programs is Triangle Speakers, in which schools, colleges, and work places invite members of the queer community and allies to speak on a panel about their personal stories, in efforts to eliminate prejudice against the LGBTQQIAP+ community. Other programs include Conexiones, a bi-monthly series of mixers for people of color and allies, a Queer Youth Task Force, and more!
Benefiting The Diversity Center and its programs, the 26th Anniversary Gala will be held on Saturday, October 17, 6:00pm – 12:00am, at the Hotel Paradox. It is a 21+ event (due to the cocktails) and will be a truly unforgettable night, featuring special performances by:
- Steve Grand, acclaimed to be the first openly gay country singer!
- Anita Antoinette from The Voice!
There will also be a drag performance, a casino, a live auction, dancing, dinner & dessert, and of course… much more!
All proceeds from this event will support The Diversity Center in continuing to provide Santa Cruz with importance spaces for LGBTQQIAP+ folks and to promote the acceptance of diversity in our community.
Please see the Gala Facebook Event for special announcements, videos, and photos!
