New York City Council Pride!
New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn, Out Council Member Rosie Mensez and other members of the NYC Council held a special celebration of LGBT Pride in the City Hall Chamber Ballroom on Wednesday, June 18. Special honors were given to Florent Morellet who owns the famous Florent restaurant in the Meat Packing District of the West Village. Tony-nominated actor Malcom Gets was the Master of Ceremonies. The Lavender Light Gospel Choir gave a beautiful, moving musical performance. Others in the presentation included Regina Shaves, Dennis Deleon, Kevin Santos and many more! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many of my friends come out to enjoy the evening including Queens District leader Danny Dromm, Executive Director of The LGBT Center Richard Burns, Staten Island Pride/Center director Rosemary Palladino, Joshua David, Mark Schulte, Lovari, Michael Mallon, Dirk McCall, AmberRose Marie, Jon Winkleman, Ron B, Empress Charlene Chiveo and many others.
