Family Equality Council’s Night at the Pier gala is a celebration of LGBTQ families, and the people and organizations which have made an impact on our families and communities. Our honorees have included Lisa Cholodenko, Lee Daniels, Chely Wright & Lauren Blitzer-Wright, William Hibsher, Roberta Kaplan, Broadway musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Daryl Roth, Nick Scandalios, and more.

Night at the Pier not only honors the contributions of remarkable people and groups, but also highlights the accomplishments of Family Equality Council – from our work ghting so-called religious freedom restoration acts to our community building events reaching over 33,000 people across the country.

This very special evening is an emotional and poignant tribute to our core message: LOVE IS WHAT MAKES A FAMILY.
