The first ever Canadian LGBT Hall of Fame

On Saturday, September 19th, 2009, the Westin Bayshore Hotel in downtown Vancouver will be the place to be and be seen. The CIBC Pride Network and Qmunity have teamed up to present the first annual Q-Ball, a formal, red carpet, black tie gala fundraiser for Qmunity. At Q-Ball we will introduce the first inductees to the Q Hall of Fame. The Q Hall of Fame will recognize those that have made significant contributions to the struggle for human rights and full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Canadians.
