N.Y. Scene November 2011: Emery Awards & After Party, DJ Tracy Young’s Birthday Bash & Gay Marriage Plays


N.Y. Scene is a monthly column that chronicles events of interest for lesbian and bi women in New York. Grace Chu has come out of lesbian scene retirement to navigate the vast and ever-evolving New York City scene, so you don’t have to.

Emery Awards and After Party – Cipriani Wall Street – November 10, 2011

While the kids in America camped out in Zuccotti Park a few blocks away, throngs of gays and lesbians occupied Wall Street to benefit the Hetrick Martin Institute, a non-profit organization devoted to serving the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) youth. By the end of the night, $1.3 million was raised for HMI. So, hey, don’t knock the 1%.

Among those in attendance were Alan Cumming, Gayle King, Real Housewife Sonja Morgan, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, and Emery Awards honoree Newark mayor Cory Booker.
