      What do you find embarrassing about this event? The fact a group of volunteers is raising funds for charity and some of the men wear dresses or that you weren’t there to support such a worthy cause?

    Thank you for covering our event which ended the year of fund raising for three local charities ROSMY, SMYAL and Pets-DC. We take pride in the diversity of our community and as a 501c3 charity host events to raise funds throughout the year. Some of the photos here show the turning over of items of historic significance to the LGBT National Museum that belonged to our beloved founder Jose Julio Sarria. Jose was the first openly gay canidate for publich office when he ran for city supervisor in San Francisco in 1961. He later went on to found in the International Imperial Court System in 1965 and we celebrate our Golden Jubilee of service to our communities. Last year at Gala of the Americas, we announced the formation of the Jose Julio Sarria Scholarship fund and "passed the hat" and raised close to 3000.00 to start the fundraising. This year we announced the fund had grown to 50,000.00 and we are on target to bring the fund to 100,000.00 by Oct 2015.
