The Annual Gala benefits the LGBTQ community of Central, Eastern and Northeastern Wisconsin. This is our largest fundraising event of the year and makes the great work we do in our community possible. This year's Annual Gala was held at Liberty Hall on March 24, 2017. The evening included a bucket raffle auction, dinner, and keynote speaker Helen Boyd. Helen has authored two books about transgender issues; she is a lecturer in gender studies at Lawrence University where she teaches Feminist Theory, Introduction to Gender Studies, and Sexualities. She spoke about the challenges the transgender community faces.
