The Legacy Gala — now the most established and well-attended event of its kind in San Francisco — annually welcomes more than 800 guests driven to make a difference in our city. The event honors two luminaries with the 2019 Legacy Awards for their social impact on the San Francisco community and their commitment to GLIDE.


2019 Rev. Cecil Williams Legacy Awardee

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence® are a leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns. They believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty. Since their first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted their selves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.


2019 Janice Mirikitani Legacy Awardee

International speaker and communication strategist Mpumi Nobiva has spoken at the White House, congressional fundraisers, corporate functions and nonprofit initiatives in several countries. Mpumi grew up in South Africa, and, at age nine, lost her mother to HIV/AIDS, leaving her orphaned like millions of other children in Sub-Saharan Africa. Reared in material poverty but spiritual wealth by her grandmother, she excelled in the first class of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa before coming to the United States to study. She currently holds a master's degree in Strategic Communications from High Point University and serves as the first alumnus on the Board of Directors of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. As NationBuilder's first Leader in Residence, Mpumi is developing the digital infrastructure for Share Your Story Africa—an initiative inspired by her advocacy work uniting youth against HIV/AIDS and domestic violence in South Africa—all while sharing her powerful story at events around the world. She also is experienced in hosting events and facilitating workshops.
