One way to fight bias is visibility: putting faces on those harmed by stigma and honoring the brave shoulders who are lifting them up.

Equality is achieved when marginalized communities collectively come together to overcome the obstacles ahead. Family Equality’s LA Impact: A Night of Heroes was all about celebrating and supporting our real-life heroes: LGBTQIA+ families and those who have championed our rights.

A part of the fight is celebrating triumphs and humanity–preferably with cocktails, fashion, and drag queens while raising over $400k for the families most at risk (with special thanks to the Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health’s CARE WITH PRIDE® advocacy initiative for providing Guardian-level sponsorship).With the rise in anti-LGBTQIA+ bills, it takes all of us to harness our individual and combined powers to fight for families across the country.

Some of our favorite celebrity superheroes featured were Rosie O’Donnell, screen star Cheyenne Jackson, RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Nina West, The Voice alum Rayshunn Lamar, TikTok sensation Kelechi, and singer Debby Holiday, among others.It was a colorful night of superhero-inspired glam, impactful stories, and powerful performances at the Paramount Studios New York Backlot.The fundraiser kicked off with none other than drag superstar Nina West performing “Drag is Magic,” enchanting the crowd with a good time.
