My name is Elizabeth Regalado. Most people know me as Liz. I'm so proud to introduce myself to you today as the new Chair of SAVE's Board of Directors. You can read more about my background here. >
It's with great humility that I accept the call to service as the first woman to chair SAVE's Board of Directors. In my years on SAVE's board, I've never been so excited about the work ahead on behalf of South Florida's LGBTQ community -- and that work starts NOW.
As an eleven-year veteran of SAVE's leadership, I know firsthand there's lots of work to do to in order to achieve full equality in the workplace and beyond not just for LGBTQ Floridians, but also for women, minorities, and the disadvantaged which count among their ranks a disproportionate number of LGBTQ people in need of help. I am excited for the opportunity to make a difference.
I know that with supporters like you, we will achieve our goals. The task for all of us is to make sure our leaders and policymakers hear our voices loud and clear in support of equality for LGBTQ South Floridians -- and you can make sure yours is heard by joining me at the County Commission on Tuesday. RSVP here. >>
I'm very much looking forward to serving you and the entire local LGBTQ community as the Chair of SAVE's Board of Directors. Thank you so much for your support.
Chair of the Board of Directors of SAVE
This past Thursday evening, with the help of dedicated supporters like you, we welcomed over 200 guests to the Bacardi headquarters building to join SAVE in honoring four extraordinary young professionals lighting the way to LGBTQ equality in South Florida.
We were so proud to honor Father Grey Maggiano, Jessica Fernandez, AJ Blechner and Nadege Green as SAVE's 2015 Luminary Award winners...
...and we were so proud to celebrate the most successful Luminary Awards reception yet -- only made possible by support from people like you and amazing pro-equality businesses and organizations, like our presenting sponsor AIDS Healthcare Foundation:
Special thanks to Bacardí for donating the beautiful space, delicious food, and top-shelf cocktails that helped make the event such a great time.
It was a beautiful celebration of all the things that make our community strong, as well as those members of the next generation working to make our community even stronger.
From the entire staff here at SAVE, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
Tony, Aurelio, Justin, Charo, Devin, Alex and Emily -- the SAVE Staff
Last night was a huge success, but the fight for LGBTQ equality isn't over, and the fun never stops...

My name is Victor Diaz-Herman. You might recognize me as the Executive Director of Pridelines, a nonprofit community center historically serving local LGBTQ youth which recently broadened its focus to serve adults as well.
You might also recognize me as an honoree from SAVE's inaugural 2013 Luminary Awards reception. I was so proud to be recognized two years ago by SAVE for the progress that Pridelines, under my leadership, has helped foster for the local LGBTQ community.
Yet, with many anti-LGBTQ proposals in the Florida legislature, now is the time to push for that progress harder than ever -- and it's critical for SAVE to have our support in order to do so.
I'm joining SAVE again this year as a supporter at the 2015 Luminary Awards TOMORROW NIGHT at the Coral Gables Bacardí HQ. Will you join me? Buy your tickets here. >>
Only with your help can we continue to support the next generation of LGBTQ and allied freedom fighters like SAVE supported me two years ago. Please join me tomorrow evening. Buy your tickets HERE. >>
Thanks for your support. I hope to see you tomorrow night!
