Annual Atticus Circle Awards Luncheon
Wed, February 29, 2012 • 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM • The Four Seasons Hotel @ 98 San Jacinto Blvd.
In conjunction with Light / The Holocaust & Humanity Project.
Annual event that honors people and organizations that support LGBT rights.
Join us as we gather to honor those who have shown exceptional support for LGBT equality, and as we move forward in this civil rights struggle based on who you love.
We created the Atticus Circle Award to honor people and organizations that support LGBT Americans, and we believe that each of us, straight and gay, has a “coming out” story to tell. What happens in a gay person’s life that’s so important they are willing to risk everything to live and love freely? Straight people can come out by speaking out for equality, but what makes them step up to the plate to become active supporters of LGBT rights?
Price: $50 Young Professionals; $150 Regular Admission
