The 9th Annual Equality Bruch will be taking place later this month to not only raise funds for the Houston GLBT Caucus, it will also honor some our local advocates and accomplices in our TBLGQ rights struggle.
I was honored by the Caucus with the John Paul Barnich Award in 2016, and now the Caucus has released the names of the persons that will be honored at the upcoming edition of the Equality Brunch in the Hotel Zaza’s Grand Ballroom.
Since I mentioned it, I’ll start by announcing the winner of the John Paul Barnich award for 2018.
The Barnich Award goes to the person whose work is rooted in justice for the LGBTQ+ community, and this year it goes to Ana Andrea Molina.
The Eleanor Tinsley Award for distinguished community ally goes to Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen
The Don Hrachovy Award for distinguished Caucus member goes to Jim Taylor.
The Kristen Capps Award for social conscience (and well deserved) goes to Kandice Webber.
The President’s Award for distinguished community leadership goes to Parker Sheffy
The Tony and Bruce Award for distinguished philanthropic leadership goes to Legacy Community Health
The Tim Brookover Award for lifetime achievement goes to Bill Baldwin.
The Equality Brunch will take place on September 30 from 12:00 noon to 2 PM at Hotel Zaza, located at 5701 Main Street near Hermann Park. Tickets are going fast for it, so if you wish to attend, you may wish to get busy securing those seats or tables before they sell out.
