2017 GLAAD Gala Atlanta

Welcome to the GLAAD Gala Atlanta, presented by Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, Ketel One Vodka, and Turner! GLAAD Gala Atlanta celebrates national and local leaders working to accelerate acceptance of the LGBTQ community in the South.

This year, the event is being elevated into a three-part gala. Guests will enjoy a pre-reception with specialty Ketel One cocktails and silent auction, followed by a 3-course dinner and live auction, which will then lead into the main stage presentation.
