MDGLCC selected honorees for their long-term commitment to fostering diversity, as well as for their efforts in contributing to the overall well being and quality of life in South Florida. â€œAs the voice of the LGBT business community, the Chamber is especially proud to have such an exemplary group to recognize once again this year,â€ says Steve Adkins, MDGLCC president. Anticipating one of the largest turnouts in its nine-year history, Adkins envisions this yearâ€™s gala to be particularly significant in view of the organizationâ€™s achievements in growth and influence, especially in light of the new LGBT Visitor Center which recently opened its doors on Miami Beach.
For the past several years, MDGLCC has selected a different color of the rainbow flag for its Gala theme and the theme for this yearâ€™s event is â€œBlue,â€ which represents knowledge, power, integrity and professionalism, all the qualities that the honorees possess. Attendees are encouraged to wear â€œa touch of blue.â€
