It’s almost time for NGLCCNY member Marriage Equality USA’s 16th annual National Gala! This amazing event will take place on May 19th in New York City and honor, amongst others, Mayor Bill de Blasio and, and after 17 years of service in a variety of roles, retiring Board Chair Cathy Marino-Thomas.
As the nation's oldest and largest organization working on the issue of marriage equality, Marriage Equality USA has helped over 120 million Americans to obtain access to full civil marriage equality in 17 states and the District of Columbia.
This is our chance to celebrate and support the work of people centrally involved in reaching this incredible moment in history.
|Mayor Bill de Blasio|
This year, we have the privilege to honor Mayor Bill de Blasio, for his impressive work supporting LGBTQ families in New York. He worked tirelessly to establish New York City´s domestic partner registry and extend benefits to same-sex partners, as well as personally lobbying state legislators in support of same-sex marriage.
Mayor de Blasio is joining fellow honorees Cathy Marino-Thomas, the Imperial Court of New York, and Love and Pride, for their outstanding contributions to marriage equality across the country.
Our National Gala brings together LGBT community members and leaders, straight allies, entertainment industry and corporate leaders, to enjoy a night of cocktails, dinner and entertainment to celebrate not only individual achievements, but also their impact in our community.
Come and join us for this remarkable event!
