In an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion, Human Rights Campaign held its 26th annual dinner and gala at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown. More than 500 people attended the gala, with proceeds benefiting HRC, which is the largest civil organization promoting LGBTQ equality in the country. Guests enjoyed drinks, dinner, a silent auction, a live auction and a special presentation of The 2019 Leadership Award to activist Rory Cahn, who was one of the first volunteers for the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland. He has been serving the LGBTQ community for more than 25 years.
