Saturday night I had the privilege of receiving an invitation to the Equality Arizona Awards Dinner. One of my coworkers is on the board and my company had sponsored a table to the event.
Events like these are great, you get to support a great foundation and spend some time with your coworkers without having to be talking about work. Ten of us attended and since it was a black tie event, we all gone done up properly. I even wore a dress. I know what you are thinking . . . now pick your jaw up off the ground.
The keynote speaker was Dustin Lance Black. If you don’t know him, he wrote the movie Milk and 8. He was absolutely amazing. He told us the story of him coming out and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. If you haven’t heard the story I encourage you to watch the video below of him telling it at the HRC National Dinner last year.
