SC Equality 2013 Gala
The SC Equality gala is now officially, sold out!
Announcing the inaugural SC Equality Gala - Through the Looking Glass of Equality!
You are invited to fall through the Looking Glass with us to imagine a South Carolina where equality is not a fantasy. Join us for a night of Alice in Wonderland inspired celebration of our 2013 advances toward equality as we honor some of our community heroes.
Place your bid in The ARTIZAN Silent Auction in the Queen's Rose Garden while enjoying a beverage from the "Drink Me' bar.
Come dine at the Mad Hatter's Table - after all, we know South Carolina loves a Tea Party. Creative formal wear and hats are encouraged.
SC Equality is excited to welcome C. Douglas Warner as Emcee for the Gala program.
And finally bust a move on the Chess Board Dance Floor to round out your evening.
Featuring headline entertainment from Frenchie Davis, star of Broadway's RENT and Team Christina on NBCs The Voice.
Our Key Note Speaker for the Gala will be US Attorney for the District of South Carolina William "Bill" N. Nettles. A graduate of the Citadel and Widener Law School, Bill Nettles was sworn in as US Attorney in May 2010. A champion for LGBT Equality, Bill has hosted trainings for law enforcement across the state on hate crime prevention and reporting. Bill Nettles received the SC Pride 2012 Courage in Leadership Award.
The 2013 SC Equality Awards will be presented at the gala. Click here to read who will be recognized!
