Special Events

Every year Family Equality provides opportunities for our supporters to celebrate together, enjoy entertainment, and raise funds to advance our work, ranging from galas to intimate gatherings at the homes of our supporters.

We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming special events.

Fireside Chat with Chasten Buttigieg

Wednesday, May 31 | 6:00 – 8:00pm | Washington, D.C.

To celebrate the release of the young adult adaptation of Chasten Buttigieg’s memoir, I Have Something to Tell You (For Young Adults), adults of all ages, parents, kids, and anyone who’s ever felt like a fish out of water are welcome at this event where Chasten will speak with Family Equality’s CEO, Stacey Stevenson, about his experience coming out and how he’s healed from the painful responses and isolation; his journey to finding acceptance and self-love; and how to pass the torch and support younger generations who feel isolated or unworthy of love.
