Equality Gala

The Equality FL Gainesville Gala Saturday May 7th 2022 at the Cade Museum. The theme is support for the transgender community. Given TranQuility’s critical role in the community, we would really like to have as many members involved as possible. One of our regular members is a co-chair on the steering committee and also our resident trans portrait of beauty painter will be showing her work at the museum of trans folks in our community and how beautiful they are. If you haven’t gotten her to paint your free portrait of trans beauty – she will be on hand to speak with you.

As part of the Gala this year, we are inviting trans folks to share aspects of their story with us as they feel comfortable with, in any way they choose. We would love to include trans folks of all ages!
