The Coming Out Day Breakfast and Awards brings together people from small business, corporate, nonprofit, educational and professional communities that have been active in supporting LGBT equality in 2016.
Sarah McBride, National Press Secretary for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and the first transgender person to address the national convention of a major political party, will offer this year’s keynote address. Sarah made history this past July when she spoke at the Democratic National Convention. Prior to joining HRC, Sarah was the Campaigns and Communications Manager for the LGBT Research and Communications Project at the Center for American Progress. She completed her undergraduate degree at American University, where she served as student body president and made national headlines when she came out as transgender in the student newspaper.
Benefiting JASMYN, the 10th Anniversary is a great time to reflect on how far we have come and to share a vision for our future, together. The 2015 breakfast was a sell-out, and more than 30 businesses were honored for their achievements in support of LGBT inclusion and the future of the young people we so proudly serve.
