On March 17, 2020, Florida governor Ron DeSantis suspended all nightclubs and bars for 30 days, and
restaurant and gyms are closed indefinitely across South Florida, due to concerns over coronavirus.
Our LGBTQ Hospitality Industry - Bartenders, Food & Hotel Service, Musicians, Performers, Illusionists... so
many in our community work rely on TIPS and if lucky, a basic salary to get by.
The CoronaVirus pandemic is a serious issue and must be dealt with, but our community needs to eat, pay
bills, rent, healthcare and simply survive during this most difficultof times for all.
IF YOU ENJOY GOING TO YOUR LOCAL BAR, RESTAURANT, DRAG SHOW, BRUNCH...
THEN PLEASE HELP THE PEOPLE THAT SERVE YOU, ENTERTAIN YOU and WAIT ON
YOU, NOW MORE THAN EVER. Offer your VIRTUAL TIPS HERE!
100% OF FUNDS COLLECTED GO DIRECTLY TO THOSE IN NEED.
Funds will be awarded on a needs-based and funding availability application process, through our
CAMPAÑA VIRTUAL DE PROPINAS PARA TRABAJADORES LGBT EN INDUSTRIAS DE HOSPITALIDAD en el
SUR de la FLORIDA en MOMENTOS DE CRISIS DE SALUD Y PARO DE EMPLEO.
They provided me with some FUNDS for Food.

thanks to Unity Coalition. I plan to use this to pay
utility bills. Thank you.

Thanks to Unity Coalition for their amazing work
in these times of need. It’s amazing to know the

UNITY COALITION|COALICIÓN UNIDA LAUNCHES UCTV – ONLINE BILINGUAL
LGBTQ FOCUSED PROGRAMMING & CONTENT FOR A NEW NORMAL
April 2020… Miami, Florida | In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and in order to continue to offer excellence in
programming and services to our community, Unity Coalition|Coalición Unida (UC|CU) developed UCTV – an online bilingual
program viewed on Facebook Live and other social media, every Monday, Wednesday & Friday @4pm, with your host
UCTV programming includes current topics of Self Care, Social Distancing, at home Wellness & Exercise, supplementing your
Income, Community Resources and more. Ongoing, guests will include local, national and international Community Leaders,
Allies, as well as our weekly UCTV’s Got Talent – every Friday, showcasing the incredible artists, musicians, writers, dancers
and all types of talent our community has. Additionally, UCTV provides a platform to promote Community Fundraising
Campaigns such as UC|CU’s EMERGENCY TIPS Fund for South Florida’s LGBT Hospitality Workers. To date, UC|CU has
raised several thousand dollars, awarded nearly 2 dozen Bartenders, Waiters, Drag Performers, etc., between $100-$300
dollars each… but much more is needed to assist those that are currently unemployed in our community.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue to serve our community in a way that is beneficial to all, accessible and offers a level of
comfort and not being alone during such a challenging time for many” said UC|CU president & CEO, Herb Sosa. Sosa also
co host, serves as executive producer for UCTV.
UCTV was launched in part with the generous support and funding of GILEAD.
“Invito a mi comundad de habla hispana, en el sur de la Florida y el mundo cybernético, a que me acompañen cada lunes,
miercoles y viernes, por un recorrdio de arcoiris, comunidad y respaldo.” said host Samantha LeTroy
