2017 Young Trailblazers Gala

About the Gala
Live Out Loud’s Young Trailblazers Gala is our annual event where we bring together 400 donors, corporate supporters, elected officials and youth scholarship winners to celebrate Live Out Loud’s life-affirming educational programming for LGBTQ youth. At the event, we will honor advocates in the community who further our mission, and we will present three $10,000 scholarships to high school seniors for their leadership in the LGBTQ community – our favorite moment of the evening.
