Progress Never Stops Brunch

BAYMEC has come a long way in 33 years of electing allies of equality. However, as anti-LGBTQ rhetoric grows across the nation, our work is more important than ever to ensure that these hard fought gains are not lost. We will always fight for a more equal and inclusive society.

Next year’s election cycle is critical to the LGBTQ community. In anticipation, BAYMEC has grown and been re-energized with the goal of ensuring candidates for elected office are not just LGBTQ-accepting, but champions of LGBTQ issues. Our vetting of candidates through our endorsement process, as well as public debates will give voters the information they need to ensure LGBTQ progress will be a priority for our future elected officials.

Hear from dynamic speakers, meet candidates for office, mingle with local elected officials, and honor those moving equality forward at the Bay Area’s premier LGBTQ political action gala. With bottomless champagne and a great networking hour, this is sure to be one of the seasons most enjoyed events.
