I Walked the @DaretoWearLove Runway to benefit @stephenlewisfdn #charity #lgbtq

The Dare to Wear Love 6 Gala and fashion show took place at the Ritz Carlton Friday, May 12th. It was an amazing evening, raising more than 275K for The Stephen Lewis Foundation‘s new LGBTQ Funding Initiative.

The new initiative will support organizations responding to HIV/AIDS within sub-Saharan African communities where HIV rates are highest.

As always, huge hugs and thanks to Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of HOAX Couture, founders of Dare to Wear Love. They are two of the most generous people I know, and their tremendous energy brings out the best in everyone around them.

Many thanks also to designer Farley Chatto who created my beautiful dress, which I love!

Lovely man and designer, Farley Chatto

The evening was filled with love and hope. By celebrating the talents and commitment of Canada’s fashion community and artists, we all used our powers for good!

Thanks to everyone who supported me this year, either with a monetary donation to my Challenge or by sharing the event and encouraging me along the way. It all helped!

Below are a few pictures from the evening’s show, but there are hundreds more! You can see them on the Flickr galleries, accessible via the Photos link on the website.

@DaretoWearLove Partners with @2lifeapp

Dare to Wear Love celebrates the work of Canada’s fashion community and performing artists. It also raises funds and awareness for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, which puts money into grassroots organizations in Africa to fight the AIDS pandemic.

I raised money for this wonderful cause back in March by showcasing all things Canadian.
