2011 hrc national dinner.

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the HRC National Dinner. It was a fabulous evening focused on civil and human rights. This was HRC president Joe Solmonese's last dinner before he plans to step down. Among guests were President Barack Obama, Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cyndi Lauper, and Betty DeGeneres.

The speeches focused on marriage equality, hospital visitation, hate crimes legislation, and of course the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. It was an amazing night, seeing everyone come out in support for equal rights.
