The ninth annual Hispanic LGBTQ Heritage Awards are Friday night from 6-8:30 p.m at the Human Rights Campaign Equality Forum (1640 Rhode Island Ave., N.W.).
The awards join together 100 LGBTQ Latinas, Latinos and allies nationally and locally to celebrate Hispanic Heritage and LGBTQ History months. It’s also a benefit for the Latino GLBT History Project. Following the awards, there will be a wine reception with hors d’oeuvres and entertainment. The digital exhibit “Héroes Latinos LGBTQ,” a collection of 90 photographs and biographies, will also be displayed at the reception.
General admission tickets are $30. For more information, visit latinoglbthistory.org/heritage
