Black Tie Co-Chairs Nathan Robbins and David Gifford-Robbins this week announced two additional headliners for the 37th annual fundraising gala on Nov. 3: award-winning actor/producer/director Matt Bomer and transgender pop star Kim Petras.
The two join other recently announced honorees Madame Secretary star and Black Tie’s Media Award winner Erich Bergen, TV personality and Black Tie’s Ally Award winner Jessi Cruickshank, and local LGBT activist and Kuchling Humanitarian Award winner Kay Wilkinson.
Bomer is “not only amazing actor, he has also become a trusted voice for the LGBTQ dinner, and we are excited that he is bringing that commitment to Black Tie Dinner,” Robbins said. “He is a strong advocate and role model for the LGBTQ dinner, and we are honored to bring his story to our dinner this year.”
Black Tie Dinner has, since its inception in 1982, raised more than $22 million for local organizations supporting the LGBT and HIV/AIDS communities and for the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This year’s event takes place Nov. 3 at the Sheraton Dallas Hotel. For tickets and more information visit BlackTie.org.
