One of fifteen LGBTQ public foundations in the country, Stonewall works to strengthen the LGBTQ community by engaging and mobilizing donors as well as investing in dynamic organizations.

While co-host Bevy Smith and Emil Wilbekin honored those who inspire social change, guests included Damon Peruzzi, Chef Roble, Bravo’s Fashion Queens Derek J and Lawrence and a special performance by British singer-songwriter Daley.
