KTLA is once again partnering with the Los Angeles LGBT Center to air its “Love in Action” telethon, helping support the LGBTQ community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“LGBTQ people have been disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the work to build back amid the full reopening of California is just beginning,” said L.A. LGBT Center Center CEO Lorri L. Jean. “The dollars donated during our first telethon in September were put to use the very next day, and we are asking for your support again to help the most vulnerable people in our community.”
Last year’s telethon raised more than $1.2 million. Donations can be made online at love.lalgbtcenter.org.
