MassEquality will honor Massachusetts' seven openly LGBTQ state legislators, including state Rep. Liz Malia, at a ceremony this week. Along with the seven legislators, MassEquality will honor the Yes on 3 Campaign at the 2019 Beacons of Light Dinner and Icon Awards Ceremony on April 25 in downtown Boston. The Yes on 3 Campaign successfully defended Massachusetts’ transgender anti-discrimination law in 2018 via a statewide vote. The campaign will receive MassEquality's Community Icon Award. Along with Malia, the following Massachusetts legislators will receive Political Icon Awards: state Sen. Jo Comerford, state Sen. Julian Cyr, state Rep. Natalie Higgins, state Rep. Kate Hogan, state Rep. Jack Patrick Lewis, and state Rep. Sarah Peake.
