Cpt. Tara Harre and her partner represent U.S. Army and San Diego at HRC gala

The HRC Gala Dinner was held in Los Angeles on Saturday, a black-tie affair centered around the groundbreaking work of the organization.

San Diego was well-represented at the gala. The sole female military representative at the event was a San Diegan: U.S. Army Capt. Tara Harre, who attended with her partner Kathryn Cloward.
 
Tara, who has served in the Army for 18 years, was recommended by a friend to HRC, and referred her to Sue LaVaccare from Lambda Legal. They were enthusiastic to have the opportunity for a decorated female Army officer in full uniform attend the gala with her partner.
 
Excited and a bit nervous, Tara and Kathryn were honored to be invited to an event at which Biden was to be the keynote speaker. Upon arrival, the president of HRC, Chad Griffin, went out of his way to greet them and have a photo taken with them.
