NYC Mayor's Pride Reception at Gracie Mansion

I was thrilled to be a part of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Reception to honor and celebrate GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender) Pride Month at Gracie Mansion, the grand Upper East Side official residence for the City's Mayor.  The soiree was a barbecue held in the gardens alongside the East River. Almost everyone important and vital to New York's Gay Community was present to greet the Mayor and other prominent elected officials like City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, City Council Member Jimmy VanBramer,  Commissioner Katherine Oliver and others .  I work as a Media Correspondent on a television series that is broadcast on NYC Life's WNYE, Channel 25, part of the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment.  It was a wonderful way to spend a Summer evening and to celebrate the contributions that GLBT people make to the culture and life-beat of New York City.
