One Iowa Gala 2017

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 LGBT people.

Our eighth annual celebration on Friday, April 7 will include a top-notch dinner, live and silent auctions, and an awards ceremony honoring the work our state’s advocates for LGBT equality have accomplished this past year.

All proceeds from the gala celebration support One Iowa’s mission to secure full equality for LGBT individuals in the state through grassroots efforts and education.
