We invite you to join us for the return of our Brunch, a spectacular event which will bring together LGBTQ+ supporters, community and business leaders, politicians, and Missourians from all backgrounds to recognize the work of outstanding Champions for Equality. Your support elevates our mission and vision!
Honeybees Biscuits & Good Eats will be catering this year! Following a Mimosa Toast, there will be an open bar with Brunch Cocktails crafted with 1220 Spirits and local beers from 4 Hands Brewery.
Tickets are now on sale and are $100 per seat.
This year’s awardees speak truth to power and lead in their fields in spite of repeated attacks and threats to the communities they serve. They are sustainers, politicians, and physicians but they are also community leaders and trailblazing advocates. Please join us in celebrating the way they stand up for equality and the way that they lead the fight for racial justice and fight back against anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and initiatives.
