LEADERS, LEGENDS & LOVELIES Ball, Lecture & Exhibit Celebrating
the good, positive & outstanding within our LGBT community, The Unity
Coalition|Coalicion Unida LEADERS, LEGENDS& LOVELIES© Lectures &
Exhibits strive to focus on just that -
Binging lecturers from all walks of life in the LGBT & friends of community,
the events focus on the similarities rather than the differences we all share,
and how we can inspire others to do good, excel, be proud of who they are
& just be better people.
The UC|CU lectures are presented year round, and the 2011 exhibit
has had its home at the Art Deco Welcome Center on Miami Beach's
Ocean Drive, thanks to the generosity and cooperation of the Miami
Design Preservation League to coincide with Miami Beach PRIDE.
