Stonewall 50 To Snub Greenwich Village: Main Music Event Will Take Place At Javitz Center

Stonewall 50 To Snub Greenwich Village: Main Music Event Will Take Place At Javitz Center

For decades the main event of New York City Pride has been its annual dance and music concert usually held in the West Village. But this year Stonewall 50 (aka Heritage of Pride) will be using New York City’s leading gay party producer, Jake Resnicow, to host the annual Pride music festival at the very un-gay Jacob Javitz Convention Center.

Via Press Release:

Located in the heart of Manhattan, the Jacob Javitz Center is a mammoth 1,800,000 square feet, covering the entire city block between 33rd and 34th Streets, 11th and 12th Avenues. It offers, by far, the largest capacity of all Pride venues. Tickets available now at PrideFestival 2019.com. “The 50th anniversary of Stonewall will bring millions of people from all over the world to New York this Pride,” explains Jake Resnicow, recently named “Most Influential Person of the Year” by Out Magazine.

The White House Will Be Hosting LGBT Pride Month Celebration – Waiting For My Invitation….Again

The Washington Blade, is reporting that this year, as in the past two, the White House will again be hosting an LGBT Pride celebration.

White House official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the celebration would take place before the month is out, but added further information isn’t yet available. Later this month, the White House will hold a reception to observe LGBT Pride month, the official said. Further details will be provided at a later date.

This will  be the third such Pride celebration at the White House. 

The first years guests mainly included mostly National Gay Inc (un) notables such as Joe Solmonsleaze Solmonese from the HRC and Rea Carey of the (Un)Task Force, while the second year’s invitees included mainly youth leaders and state equality groups.

With Obama’s 2012 re-election coming up and the needed backing of the LGBT community who knows who’ll be on the list.  (But I can guarantee you it most probably won’t be me.)

Maybe this is why the HRC came out so early endorsing Obama in 2012.  Little Joe probably wanted to make sure that his invitation didn’ t get lost in the mail like mine does every year.

2010 GLAAD Media Awards – Another Gay Organization, Another Glitzy Party For The Gay Elite

The GLAAD Media Awards which salute fair, accurate and inclusive representation of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives in the media was held Saturday night in a glitzy and expensive ceremony at the Hyatt Regency. (Your donation dollars at work!) Winners – chosen from 152 nominees in 32 categories – were awarded at a March ceremony in New York, while the remainder will be presented at a San Francisco ceremony in June.Last nights ceremony spotlighted the “major” catagories.

Glee won “Best Comedy” and “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy told the audience that next season “Kurt” (Chris Colfer) would have a boyfriend and they would be school prom kings. (OMG, SPOILER MUCH MURPHY?!) Colfer who is is gay; along with lesbian actress Jane Lynch were both on hand.

Other winners included Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” for outstanding reality program and “A Single Man” for outstanding wide release film. “A Single Man” director Tom Ford wasn’t on hand to receive his trophy. His partner Richard Buckley accepted the award on Ford’s behalf because the filmmaker was stranded in London thanks to the volcanic cloud of ash.

Constance McMillen, the lesbian Mississippi teenager who challenged her school district’s ban of same-sex prom dates, presented comedian-actress Wanda Sykes with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, which is given by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to an openly gay member of the entertainment community for their work toward eliminating homophobia.

“I’m willing to give this award to you,” Sykes teased McMillen, “but I’m not gonna do it. It means a lot to me.”

Also openly lesbian Iron Chef” Cat Cora presented actress-director Drew Barrymore with the Vanguard Award, which honors efforts to increase visibility and understanding of the gay community.  “The thing that means the most to me about an evening like this, and why I want to fight and be outspoken about this is because there are so many people who are in desperate need of families,” Barrymore said.

Adam Lambert, the glam-rocking “American Idol” runner-up who raised eyebrows with his racy performance at last year’s American Music Awards, capped off the ceremony hosted by transgender actress Candis Cayne and gay actor Wilson Cruz with a performance of his tunes “Music Again” and “Fever.” He ended by pleading for diversity within the gay community.  (Perhaps Adam should have pleaded for diversity within the human race.)

Another party for the elite held with your donations.

Fucking beautiful.
