Fortitude Weekend 2011

Fortitude, organized by The L Foundation, is a new gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender (GLBT) benefit weekend featuring more than twelve events at multiple venues, including a film festival, comedy night, live concert, women’s and men’s pool parties, sunset cocktails, brunch, and nightclub/bar events. 

Fortitude Weekend benefited amfAR, Pride Center at Equality Park, and Fort Lauderdale-Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festivals.

amfAR is grateful for Fortitude Weekend's generous donation of $100,000 from the event proceeds.

Event highlights included a comedy night and live musical performances. The comedy night on Saturday, February 19, was held at the historic Parker Playhouse featuring Judy Gold, Julie Goldman, and Alec Mapa. A concert on Sunday, February 20, at the War Memorial Auditorium featured Taylor Dayne, Martha Wash, and special guest appearances for a full night of amazing musical performances.
