Good for SAVE Dade! Nothing like a little national exposure for LGBT rights in Florida!

SAVE Dade will be featured prominently on Sunday's episode of Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami airing at 10pm on E!

Last June 11th, 2009 SAVE Dade threw a party on South Beach celebrating the marriage equality victories in Iowa, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Washington DC. That same day the City of Miami Commission made in to law a Domestic Partnership Ordinance with a 5 - 0 vote.

International personality Elaine Lancaster was the host and international superstar DJ Tracy Young was spinning music, as part of the entertainment line-up. The party created enough buzz to reach the Kardashian sisters and Jospeh Mooradian, SAVE Dade Community Coordinator, was invited to be a special guest on the Khloe After Dark radio broadcasts.

"I knew that Khloe Kardashian was a strong supporter of LGBT rights and a very vocal opponent to California's Proposition 8, so I called to invite her to be part of the party." said Joseph Mooradian.

Khloe not only agreed to attend, but also to take part in a Khloe Kardashian Drag Look-A-Like contest. She had been the butt of a joke from Perez Hilton in which he referred to her as a "tranny" and she was going to prove that she could take a joke and run with it.

Local celebrity judges included nightlife promoter, Edison Farrow, local CBS4 Chief Meteorologist David Bernard, MTV's Real World, Road Rules: Challenge II winner, Rachel Robinson as well as Khloe's older sister, Kourtney.

Unbeknownst to SAVE Dade, the Kardashian sisters were in town not only to open their new boutique but they were also filming a new reality TV show, Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami. The show featured the SAVE Dade party and helped the organization raise $5,000 to go toward their continued fight for LGBT protections.

The show will air this Sunday, September 6th, at 10pm est. on E!
