All proceeds from the Equality Ball will fund the human rights work of the Peter Tatchell Foundation, which includes a mixture of LGBTI and broader human rights initiatives, both in the UK and internationally.
November 28 is our inaugural Equality Ball. It is scheduled to take place annually on the last the Saturday in November, with a different theme each year.
The Chair of the PTF Board of Trustees, Jeremy Hooke, said:
“This is a great opportunity for our friends and supporters to have a glamorous night out that contributes financially to our human rights endeavours. Peter Tatchell has been very ill from overwork because we don’t have enough staff. I hope the revenue from The Equality Ball will enable us to take on an extra worker to take the pressure off him and make our work even more effective.”
Peter Tatchell, PTF Director, added:
“Heather Peace, Ronan Parke and Marc Almond are amazing singers. I’m grateful they’ve agreed to generously donate their talent to make The Equality Ball a night to remember. It’s going to be a fabulous evening. For one night only, I’m going glam – all in the cause of fundraising for human rights.”
