GLAD Forward

Who are we?
GLAD Forward is a group of young LGBTQ people and allies in the Greater Boston area who believe we can make a difference, change lives, and have a great time doing it. We’re here to network, party, learn, and do more – together.

Why get involved?
Because you’re fun, fabulous, and philanthropic. Now more than ever, we know we need to carry LGBTQ justice into the future. And this is the place to meet other people like you: people who want to make an impact, people who want to ensure that everyone in the LGBTQ community has the rights they deserve, and people who want to have fun while we’re at it.

What’s coming up?
GLAD Forward has opportunities just for young adults. We’re also your gateway to attend other GLAD events as a group. Never been to a GLAD event? Don’t know anyone yet? Don’t worry – you’re already among friends.

18th Annual Spirit of Justice Award Dinner

Friday, October 27 2017
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Boston, MA

Question: What happens when you fill a ballroom with people for celebration, inspiration, dinner, and dancing? Answer: GLAD’s biggest event of the year to support LGBTQ justice.

And this year’s going to be epic, people. We’re honoring The Honorable Eric H. Holder Jr., 82nd Attorney General of the United States. Yes, the one who served under President Obama and is a civil rights visionary.

We’ll make sure you sit with some great people who want to meet you, too. Just choose ‘GLAD Forward’ as your Table Captain when you get your tickets.

Get tickets here.
