Bronx Borough President LGBT Pride Gala

I was thrilled and honored to be a part of the 6th annual Bronx Borough President & Allies LGBTQ Pride Awards Ceremony hosted by the Bronx Borough President Rubin Diaz Jr..  The event took place on June 1st at Billy's Sports Bar at Yankee Stadium at 58 East 161 Street, The Bronx, New York.  The gala was co-hosted by Out Council Members Ritchie Torres and James Vacca.  Borough President Diaz presented Christine Quinn, the former City Council Speaker and the President and CEO of Women in Need, with the 2016 John Wade Award, recognizing her dedication to public service. My dear drag diva sisters Appolonia Cruz and Vivika Westwood Mugler added a lot of glamour and fun to the evening.  Recording artists Frankie Allday and Tym Moss gave amazing performances.
