LGBT Democrats of Virginia Equality Breakfast

We’re excited to let you know that we’ll be hosting our almost-annual Equality Breakfast on June 17, 2017! The breakfast will take place before the Democratic Party of Virginia’s Central Committee meeting. As you probably know, this is the same weekend as the DPVA’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner, so we expect tickets to the breakfast to go fast! Our last breakfast sold out quickly. Don’t miss out, get your tickets today.

This year, we are honored to have Representative Donald McEachin back as our Master of Ceremonies and guest speaker. Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam will also be attending as our special guest.

In addition to tickets, sponsorships are also available that include recognition in the program, acknowledgement from the chairperson during their welcoming remarks, and priority seating. If interested, become a Equality Breakfast sponsor now.

Not only is the Equality Breakfast a wonderful opportunity to come together and celebrate the progress we’ve made to make Virginia a welcoming place for all, proceeds from this event helps LGBT Democrats of Virginia advocate for issues impacting the LGBT+ community, the Democratic Party, and support our endorsed pro-equality Democratic candidates throughout the commonwealth.

We look forward to seeing you there. Thanks for your support.
