GLAD Forward – GLAD’s young professionals’ group – is back and we’re gathering for a night of holiday queer!

Don we now our gay apparel for some good food, good drinks, good friends, and giving back. The fun includes a DJ, DIY gift-making with LUSH, cookie decorating, wine and beer on us, and more!

Break out your best ugly holiday sweater and participate in our Ugly Sweater Contest for the chance to win some amazing prizes courtesy of Tivoli Audio, Lush Cosmetics, and Lamplighter Brewing! Plus, we’ll have some opportunities to support GLAD’s efforts to pass the Equality Act.

We’ll also be collecting donations of toiletries for Victory Programs, a Boston-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless individuals and families, many of whom are LGBTQ or HIV+. The event is free, but please bring something to contribute!
