Photos: Equality Virginia’s 2011 Commonwealth Dinner
Equality Virginia held its eighth annual Commonwealth Dinner on Saturday, April 16.
At the event, Mayor Dwight Jones announced an executive order that would place a zero tolerance policy on discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity within any city agency. The new executive order makes Richmond the seventh locale in the Commonwealth of Virginia with this protection.
The event also featured recognition of EV’s OUTstanding Virginians, entertainment by NoBS Brass and jazz vocalist Emme St. James, and an after-dinner dance. See photos from the event below.
