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 –
Bringing 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.
Our work is 100% funded by fundraisers & private donations, and we are 100% staffed & managed by volunteers. Everything that comes in,
goes right back out for programming, leading & assisting our LGBT community.
On April 14, 2011 from 7-10pm we are hosting the Unity Coalition|Coalición Unida LEADERS, LEGENDS& LOVELIES© Ball, and your
participation will help us make this magical night even better and more successful.

through art, photography and costumes, all hosted by Miss Elaine Lancaster.
- We will introduce our 2011 LL&L Honorees – persons from the community, present & past that have made a positive mark & present
them with an amazing Medal of Honor.
- The UC|CU Legends Dolls will be unveiled…A one-of-a-kind collection of fashion dolls created by and in the image of local Divas. They
