Don’t Miss the Oct. 21 Virtual Rubi Awards

It’s time to register to attend the second annual Greater Dayton LGBTQ+ VIRTUAL Her/History Rubi Awards on Oct. 21. If you attended last year, you know what a great evening of community and celebration it was . . . and this year, it will be even better. We have some special things planned, including a keynote message from former Presidential candidate PETE BUTTIGIEG (Mayor Pete), the first openly gay man to win a Presidential primary.

Pete Buttigieg (Mayor Pete) – the first openly gay candidate to win a presidential primary or caucus after winning the Iowa caucuses. He now leads Win the Era PAC and Action Fund which works to embody and lift up the values that bring the American people together

Join us and DAYTON MAYOR NAN WHALEY as we recognize the best of the best in Greater Dayton LGBTQ+ Herstory and History. We will honor torchbearers of equality, inclusion and justice as we recognize pivotal people, places, events and organizations that have helped us all RISE UP and GROW STRONGER to make the Dayton area more inclusive and affirming for LGBTQ+ people. You’ll hear compelling stories about people and organizations who have created change to make our community and our country more inclusive and equal for LGBTQ people, including a prolific Dayton-area author who was known as the “godfather of gay pulp fiction.”

It’s a chance to say “thank you” to many of the people who helped pave the way for our community. Early bird tickets are available for $20 through Oct. 1. Afterward, tickets are $25. Buy a takeout meal at Wheat Penny Oven and Bar for just $15 and enjoy the Rubi Awards over dinner in the comfort of your own home.
