Family Equality Council’s Impact Awards are a celebration of LGBTQ families, and the people and organizations that have made an impact on our families and communities. Our past honorees have included Greg Berlanti, Sara Gilbert & Linda Perry, Glee + Modern Family, Mayor Annise Parker, Transparent, and Target.

The Impact Awards not only honor the contributions of remarkable people and groups, but also highlights the accomplishments of Family Equality Council – from our work fighting 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
