On August 21, 2005, TLC Board and Staff gathered with about 150 of our closest friends to celebrate three years of transforming California into a state where everyone can fully and freely express our gender identities. Thanks to our hosts, the Bambuddha Lounge, everyone had a great time eating, drinking, and getting their social on.

We were incredibly fortunate that TLC friend and client, Veronica Klaus, was able to show up with two friends to entertain the crowd with her award winning vocals. Her performance was followed by an awards ceremony that recognized 15 of our brightest leaders and allies:

 

Community Vanguard Awards

Joan Roughgarden
Red Jordan Arobateau
Susan Stryker
Miss Major
Lindy Whiteway
Community Ally Awards

Jennifer Mantle
Dusty Araujo
Pam Peniston
Yomi Wronge
Shane Snowdon

Community Partner Awards

Tatiana Kaneholani
Aidan Dunn
Marcus Arana
Patricia Kevena Fili
Bionka Stevens

In addition to our individual donors, TLC was lucky enough to have several sponsors for the event:

 

PlanetOut Wells Fargo Bitch Magazine
Good Vibrations San Francisco Pride Latham and Watkins
