The Human Rights Campaign hosted its annual Atlanta dinner on Saturday, May 4, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel to raise funds for the country's largest national LGBT advocacy organization.

The dinner began with a performance from Serenbe Playhouse’s production of “Hair.”

Recent victories, including the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” and state victories across the country, made the annual dinner more of a celebration than in previous years.

Annual Atlanta HRC Dinner raises funds for national fight

Atlanta HRC Dinner

At a recent reception at the upscale STK restaurant and bar in Midtown, dozens of Human Rights Campaign members gathered to network, socialize and bid on some silent auction items while they sipped cocktails.

The members and supporters were just weeks away from the annual Atlanta Gala Dinner, set for May 4 at the Hyatt Regency, and several members excitedly received their nametags noting they are officially members of the dinner committee.

About an hour into the party, dinner co-chairs Andrew Land and Kaitlin Porter stood atop a counter and toasted everyone for coming out. Porter announced the dinner is almost sold out so people need to buy their tickets now.
