FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
More than 50 guests attended, and just under $5,000 was raised. 10% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Los Angeles LGBT Center to be directed towards their Youth Center on Highland.
The balance will be equally divided between the two organizations to support their respective missions of collecting and sharing stories from the LGBT community to help change hearts, minds, and lives.
Guests also had the opportunity to assemble hygiene kits which will be donated to the Youth Center on Highland, which serves between 80 and 100 homeless and at-risk young people per day.
Germán Toledo Carrero, a composer, pianist, keyboardist, and producer from Santiago Chile who is currently studying in Los Angeles, provided entertainment for the event.
The event also featured a mini-screening of Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric, a two-hour documentary where acclaimed journalist Katie Couric sets out to explore the rapidly evolving complexities of gender identity.
