Event is Nov. 21
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 17, 2014) — The third annual Feast on Equality, a fundraiser benefitting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Center at the University of Louisville, will be held on Nov. 21 at The Henry Clay, 604 S. Third St.
Cocktails will be served at 7 p.m. and the dance begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased online.
Proceeds will go through the Feast on Equality Fund, a part of UofL’s Charting Our Course to provide ongoing support for LGBT students at UofL. Fund money will be used to support the LGBT Center’s daily operation; support for students coming out of or into a crisis, training for faculty, staff and student participation in national conferences.
Last year’s event sold out.
“The Feast on Equality is an opportunity for the community to support the work of our center,” said Brian Buford, LGBT Center director. “When people hear about the challenges that many LGBT students face—like bullying, isolation and family rejection—they want to help. I’m still floating from last year’s Feast on Equality, because I have seen what a dramatic difference it made in the lives of students.”
Last year’s proceeds funded the LGBT Center’s daily operation, support groups, a civil rights immersion tour of Birmingham and Selma, events like Pride Week and the launch of a satellite office on the Health Sciences Campus.
