One Iowa

13th Annual One Iowa Gala 2022

One Iowa hosted the first gala celebration in 2010 to commemorate the momentous Iowa Supreme Court decision (Varnum v. Brien) legalizing same-sex marriage. Since that celebration of Iowa’s legacy of equality, we have continued to celebrate our successes as we preserve and advance equality for LGBTQ people. We are excited to kick off Pride Month and celebrate in-person together for the first time in two years on Saturday, June 4th at the 13th Annual One Iowa Gala!

The event will feature an awards ceremony honoring the LGBTQ advocates fighting for equality in our state, an amazing silent auction, interactive vendors, and a chance to come together and raise money for the LGBTQ community in Iowa.

You can join us for the entire night by purchasing a General Admission ticket or skip the program and come straight to the party by buying a celebration ticket! Limited pay what you can ticket are set aside for those in our community who need financial assistance to attend the event.
