The Indiana Benefit, one of Lambda Legal’s signature events and one of the largest LGBTQ+ events in Indiana, will return to the Indiana State Museum on Friday, September 8th. This year’s co-chairs will help inspire local, corporate, and grassroots support for Lambda Legal, the nation’s largest and most successful legal defense organization working to achieve full recognition for LGBTQ people and everyone living with HIV.
“After 50 remarkable years of relentless litigation, unparalleled success, and unwavering defense of hard-fought rights, we eagerly anticipate 50+ more,” expressed Anne White, a newly elected member of the Lambda Legal Board and 2023 Indiana Benefit Co-Chair. “Lambda Legal embodies the courage to challenge unjust practices, combat mistreatment within the LGBTQ+ community, and defy laws that hinder the ability to live and love openly. Our mission is more important than ever, and our commitment is unwavering.”
