Rea Carey On National LGBTQ Task Force Virtual Agenda (AUDIO)













In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Rea Carey, Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force about their upcoming virtual events and how The Task Force is adjusting to the new normal in these challenging times with the COVID-19 pandemic. To begin with the 24th annual National LGBTQ Task Force Gala will stream virtually on Saturday October 3rd beginning at 8P EST in lieu of the customary gala held in Miami Beach, FL. This year’s theme is “The Power of US” which will focus on celebrating progress for LGBTQ people and their families. It will also emphasize the critical work of the National LGBTQ Task Force as they work to ensure that our LGBTQ community is counted through their “Queer the Census” campaign and the critical need to "Queer the Vote" in the upcoming election. The National LGBTQ Task Force Gala online event will be hosted by Latrice Royale of RuPaul’s Drag Race fame and the evening will include video messages from Pete Buttigieg, Alan Cumming, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, Sam Champion, Jai Rodriguez of the original “Queer Eye” cast and George Takei among others to be announced. The National Task Force Gala virtual event will also be more accessible nationally and globally for supporters and members of the Task Force family with no fixed ticket price this year so any donation will get you in and tables are not limited to just 10 people with the virtual table host feature there’s no limit to the number of guests at a given table. So put on your tux or your sweatpants and join in the fun that will help support this fabulous organization. Then following the gala the next virtual events will be the “Queering Racial Justice Institute” on October 10th, 2020 and the Creating Change Conference from January 27th to 31st, 2021. We talked to Rea about what she hopes to accomplish with the upcoming virtual events and her spin on our LGBTQ issues.

Rea Carey is one of the most respected leaders in our LGBTQ movement. Since 2008 through her leadership Carey has advanced a vision of freedom for LGBTQ people and their families that is broad, inclusive and progressive. The National LGBTQ Task Force is building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives. Today despite all the progress they’ve made to end discrimination millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement and basic human rights. By training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation and fundraising events like the National LGBTQ Task Force Gala they are committed to deliver a world where you can be you.
