The month of June is officially known for being Pride Month, and this month and every month, we celebrate one powerful message: “Love is Love.” Each year, Lambda Legal, an organization which fights for the rights of those from the LGBTQ+ community and those with HIV, hosts a phenomenal and inspiring event – the West Coast Liberty Awards. The incredible event honors admirable individuals who have and continue to do above and beyond to help support and make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals. The West Coast Liberty Awards recognizes stupendous individuals and organizations with the prestigious Liberty Award, and this year, Toyota North America and Asian Pacific Islander (API) Equality were the two spectacular and impactful honorees.
The 2017 West Coast Liberty Awards took place on June 7, 2017 at TAO at the Dream Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The night was truly unforgettable and so magnificent and it all goes down to one thing – everyone joining together to fight for equality and celebrate the wonderful thing we call love. The marvelous event had a cocktail and hors d’oevres reception with delicious and mouthwatering food from TAO. The event also included a silent auction and the fantastic, award ceremony.
Many exceptional celebrities attended the West Coast Liberty Awards including Brian Justin Crum, who also performed at the event, Diora Baird and Mav Viola, Renee Olstead, Allison King, Ari Fitz, Josh Lee Young, Stephanie Rice, and many more. Prison Break‘s Amin El Gamal hosted the sensational event.
