Equalux – TASTE of GSBA
November 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
EQUALUX: The TASTE of GSBA is a community coming together for its own.
This year’s EQUALUX, Seattle’s largest LGBTQ gala, will feature delicious food from top restaurants and celebrity chefs, the finest wines in Washington, stellar local entertainment, unbeatable silent and live auctions, and – most of all – a community celebration of our future LGBTQ and allied leaders.
**The GSBA Scholarship Fund**
Proceeds raised at EQUALUX directly benefit the GSBA Scholarship Fund, one of the oldest and most active LGBTQ scholarship programs in the country. Since its founding in 1991, the GSBA Scholarship Fund has invested $3.4 million in LGBTQ+ students who exemplify leadership potential, strong academic ability, and community involvement and dedication. The scholarship program works to empower students with marginalized intersectional identities within the LGBTQ+ community and provides not only financial support for LGBTQ+ students, but a network of support, skills-based workshops, and a yearly three-day leadership immersion camp. In 2019, $500,000 was invested in 50 LGBTQ+ and allied students, 46% of whom identify as trans and/or gender diverse, and 72% who identify as students of color. Meet our incredible 2019 GSBA Scholarship Fund Class.
