ABOUT THE EVENT

lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

This year, the Unforgettable Gala returns to the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, December 11. Character Media proudly presents the 19th annual awards ceremony and celebration, recognizing the Asian and Pacific Islander leaders who have fought for API presence in the arts, entertainment and culture. On this night, our community honors the efforts and dedication of these individuals, and anticipates a future of authentic representation for all.

 

Dress Code:

This is a black-tie event.

The Unforgettable Gala is pleased to introduce its 2021 theme—‘RISE.’

‘RISE’ speaks to the uplift of our communities in the face of the hardships we’ve endured over the past two years. Despite the spread of anti-Asian hate crimes during a global pandemic, we have not only survived, but fought back—speaking out against racism, protecting our loved ones and standing proud of our shared cultural heritage. This year, we recognize and commemorate these efforts.

We are also celebrating thirty years since the founding of Character Media and its publication family. Since 1990, we have strived to make a place for Asian America in all entertainment arenas and have been at the forefront of the battle for representation. With the return of Unforgettable, we once again pay tribute to the talented voices, the rich diversity and the incredible achievements of our community.
