HRC-Nashville announces 2014 HRC Dinner Gala

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC)-Nashville Steering Committee announced the date and location of the annual HRC Dinner Gala. The event will take place on March 8, 2014 at the Renaissance Downtown Hotel. 

The Annual HRC Dinner Gala is held to celebrate the accomplishments made through the efforts of the Human Rights Campaign and its members and supporters. The Dinner Gala includes national speakers and advocates for equality, a silent auction, and renowned entertainers. 

"HRC and the rest of the LGBT community has been very successful over the last year," stated HRC-Nashville Co-Chairman Steven Altum. "The HRC Dinner Gala is a great time for members and supporters of equality to gather together and celebrate our successes and help plan for the future."

Each year the HRC Dinner Gala is supported by several local and national corporations that have made equality a corner stone of their corporate philosophy. Last year, these corporate sponsors helped to raise tens of thousands of dollars to help the fight for equality across the country.

"HRC could not be successful without the countless number of small businesses and large corporations that have stood up for equality," said HRC Governor JR Simon. "The stand that these businesses have made truly show the power of our movement and the bright future ahead."

The Human Rights Campaign is the largest LGBT rights advocacy organization in the United States.  Headquartered in Washington, DC, HRC fights every day for the rights of all LGBT persons and helps to develop pro-LGBT public policy. There are currently thirty-three steering committees in cities across the country that help manage local volunteers, events and political movements.

The HRC-Foundation is a separate branch of the Human Rights Campaign that manages several social improvement programs under the HRC umbrella. These programs include: the Corporate Equality Index (CEI), Same Schools/Anti-Bullying Campaign, and LGBT adoption support services.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
