The Vision Awards honor the work of extraordinary individuals and organizations that use their influence to enrich the lives of LGBTQ people. Past honorees include Janet Mock, Levi Strauss & Co., Dustin Lance Black, the Gender & Family Project, and Selenis and Marizol Leyva. Vision is also our signature Pride gala, raising funds to support our grant, scholarship, and leadership programs.

A party with purpose, the Vision Awards welcomes over 350 guests to celebrate Stonewall’s work of mobilizing resources to advance LGBTQ justice and equality. Since 1990, we have touched hundreds of thousands of lives—from asylum seekers trying to access social services to youth pursuing higher education or seeking employment and stable housing. Our lifetime grants total more than $18 million awarded to over 600 nonprofits in New York City and beyond. Nationally, we are one of the top 10 funders on LGBTQ housing and homelessness, and nearly one-third of all our grants benefit organizations and projects serving LGBTQ youth.
