19th Annual Commonwealth Dinner

We can't wait to celebrate with you!

Equality Virginia’s 19th annual Commonwealth Dinner will be held Saturday, August 13, 2022 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center! This signature event is Virginia’s largest black-tie gala for the LGBTQ community and its supporters. In past years, over 1,000 guests including Virginia’s political, business, and non-profit leaders and influencers have joined us from every region to celebrate each other’s successes.

We recognize not everyone who wants to attend the Dinner in-person can, which is why we’re excited to have a livestream option for this year’s celebration. While livestream tickets are completely free, RSVPs will be required. 

For over 30 years, you have made it possible for Equality Virginia to provide a variety of trainings and educational resources to respond to the needs of our community, particularly those experiencing multiple forms of oppression. Equality looks different for each and every person, but by fostering a supportive and welcoming environment we have been able to build trust in our mission and accomplish more than we could have ever imagined.
