Phoenix Pride hosts an annual Awards Gala every June, following the Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade. This year is especially important to Phoenix Pride as we bid farewell to Brandi Sokolosky and welcome our new Executive Director, Justin Owen, to our Pride Family! It is an evening of entertainment, awards, and special presentations and we hope that you will join us in welcoming Justin.
This is a special evening to honor and celebrate the contribution of individuals, organizations, businesses and political leadership from the LGBTQ community and our allies. We honor the past, celebrate the present and look into the future.
At the Gala we recognize our program beneficiaries by awarding scholarships and announcing contributions to community partners. We use this opportunity to raise funds for the Phoenix Pride Scholarship Program by hosting various fundraising activities through the night.
