Hosted by author Stella Duffy in the magnificent art-deco Ballroom of The Dorchester, the evening sees over 500 people come together for an evening of fine dining, a live auction featuring money-can’t-buy lots conducted by Christopher Biggins, and dancing until late.
Director of Fundraising, Catherine Bosworth says ‘The Stonewall Equality Dinner is the centrepiece of our fundraising calendar and our favourite night of the year. Not only do we get the most marvellous group of people all in one room, but they help us to raise around ten per cent of our annual income in just one night. These vital funds enable us to continue our work supporting millions of lesbian, gay and bisexual people each and every day.’
The Equality Dinner has now sold out but you can still take part in our silent auction before the event, which has a wide variety of amazing prizes!
