New Yorks LGBT Center Big Remodel

new york gay lesbian center

After undergoing a dramatic $9.2 million dollar renovation, the city and Board of Directors proudly presented the new and improved Center to the community.

Speakers including Executive Director Glennda Testone, New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, New York State Assembly member Deborah Glick, New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer and more sang the praises of The Center and lauded the great work it has done and will continue to do for future generations.

The final speech of the evening was delivered by LGBT icon, Edie Windsor, whose history-making lawsuit forced the Federal Government to recognize same-sex marriage. The octogenarian received a rousing standing ovation and proudly stated that The Center’s new coffee shop bears her name and that of her late wife, Thea Spyer.

 

Other notable guests, including jewelry designer Alexis Bittar, sipped on celebratory St-Germain cocktails while admiring The Center’s art exhibition, Once Upon a Time and Now, which showcases artworks preserved in the renovation from 1989’s historic The Center Show – a series of site-specific installations commissioned by The Center to mark the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots – along with new works. The exhibit features art from Keith Haring, David LaChapelle, Kenny Scharf among others.  Cocktails served included the signature St-Germain Cocktail (St-Germain, Prosecco and Sparkling Water over ice with a lemon twist) and St-Germain and Champagne. The artisanal French liqueur is a proud supporter of the LGBT community and was thrilled to take part in this momentous occasion.

LGBT Center: Once Upon A Time And Now

February 3, 2015 – March 3, 2015

The Center is revisiting The Center Show  (1989) by reinstalling artworks from artists such as David LaChapelle and incorporating new artwork, under the curatorial direction of Ian Alteveer, Associate Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The goal of the exhibition, Once Upon a Time and Now, is to encourage guests and supporters to explore The Center including our rich, cultural history while continuing our role as a cultural destination for years to come.

LaChapelle’s artistic temperament is characterized by an unremitting effort to discover the ever newer possibilities offered by the medium of photography. His works from the 1980’s often represent a sort of fusion of photography, collage and graphic art.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center has undergone a major renovation of their historic main building over the last year and a half, upgrading the capabilities of the space while preserving their unique history in New York City.

Presented to celebrate the renovation of The Center, Once Upon A Time and Now, examines historic works from the 1980s preserved in the renovation and looks to the future with new works.

Featuring: Arch Connelly, Leon Golub, Gran Fury, Keith Haring, David LaChapelle, Stephen Lack, Thomas Lanigan Schmidt, Kay Rosen, Barbara Sandler, Kenny Scharf, Nancy Spero, Robert Storr, Susan Strande, Richard Taddei, George Whitman, and Martin Wong

Alongside more recent work by Deborah Kass, Tseng Kwong Chi, Glenn Ligon

rally to denounce hate violence, call for justice and to mourn the death
of Mark Carson. Please join us, and help spread the word.

New York is our city, and we aren’t going backward. Join us on Monday evening to honor Mark and help ensure everyone hears our message.

In solidarity,
Glennda Testone
Executive Director

New York’s Center Dinner to honor DOMA Plaintiff Edie Windsor, April 11

Friends
and supporters of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender
Community Center (the Center) will gather at Cipriani Wall Street on
Thursday, April 11 to honor community leaders Edie Windsor, Terrence
Meck and Neil Tallantire.
Special guests Neil Patrick Harris and David
Burtka
will join the Center to recognize the remarkable work of these
individuals, while helping the Center raise funds to support its
life-changing and life-saving programs and services.

The
accomplishments of all three honorees extend far beyond the
organization: Edie Windsor, for her long-standing contributions and
whose case went before the Supreme Court in late March to challenge the
Defense of Marriage Act; Terrence Meck, Executive Director of the
Palette Fund, which makes grants in support of queer youth, patient
navigation, and nutrition and wellness; and Neil Tallantire, Senior Vice
President, Diageo, for his leadership of Diageo’s philanthropic support
of the LGBT community.

“We’re fortunate this year to have such
wonderful friends who stand up every day for fairness and equality for
LGBT people,” said Glennda Testone, the Center’s Executive Director.
“Years from now, history will remember Edie Windsor as a hero of the
LGBT civil rights movement. Her long history with the Center and her
contributions to the community overall inspired us not just to honor
her, but also to name the award after Edie and her late wife Thea. From
this year on, the Center will recognize outstanding activist individuals
with the Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer Community Trailblazer Award.”

Center
Dinner Co-Chairs Timothy Chow and Greg Zaffiro join Testone and the
Center’s Board of Directors in hosting the evening. The dinner will also
celebrate two important milestones in the Center’s history: the 30th
anniversary as the heart of the LGBT community in New York City, and the
commencement of a transformational building enhancement project
designed to expand on the vision of its founders and meet the needs of
the community in the years to come. For more information on the Center’s
renovation, visit www.gaycenter.org/buildingforyou.

WHO: Actor Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) and partner David Burtka; Windsor v. United States plaintiff Edith “Edie” Windsor; financial guru Suze Orman (“The Suze Show”); MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts; Broadway star Nick Adams; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center Executive Director Glennda Testone; and Event Co-Chairs Timothy Chow and Greg Zaffiro.

Simon Doonan at The Center Feb 15… Gay Men Don’t Get Fat!

On Wednesday, February 15th, Center Authors and Second Tuesday present the witty, clever, and talented Simon Doonan, who will present and read from his new book of essays, Gay Men Don’t Get Fat
.

A fashionista and trusted adviser, Doonan can tell a story like no one else, moving you from outright laughter to a little tear in the corner of your eye. In his new book, Doonan talks about himself (and his designer hubby, Jonathan Adler) with honesty and hilarity; offering wisdom, advice, and inspiration beyond the same old diet and exercise tips.

He uses his own life experiences and insights to show us all how we can make every day a memorable event. Gay Men Don’t Get Fat continues Doonan’s tradition of linked stories and essays, this time to give away all the best gay secrets we use to stay svelte, fabulously accessorized, and beautifully decorated.

Originally from England, Simon Doonan worked for Savile Row before
becoming the creative director for Barneys New York, where he designed
legendary window displays for more than twenty years. Formerly a
columnist for The New York Observer, he is now a contributor to
Slate.com. He has appeared on Gossip Girl, Iron Chef America, and
America’s Next Top Model.

He is the author of several books, including
“Wacky Chicks,” “Confessions of a Window Dresser,” and “Beautiful
People,” which was adapted for television in the UK. Doonan lives in New
York with his husband, Jonathan Adler.

World AIDS Day Event: Spotlight on The Starlite Lounge Dec 1

World AIDS Day Event:
Spotlight on The Starlite Lounge

Recently closed Black-owned Brooklyn gay bar gets new life in this documentary screening featuring talkback with the bar’s owners and former patrons
On Thursday, December 1 at 6:30 PM, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center commemorates World AIDS Day by proudly presenting documentarians Kate Kunath and Sasha Wortzel in conversation with Dennis Parrott and Linda King, owners of the legendary Starlite Lounge.

In 1959, a decade prior to Manhattan’s Stonewall riots, the Starlite Lounge opened in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, as a non-discriminatory establishment for gay people of color.

A half-century later, the neighborhood and the gay community were shocked when the oldest, Black-owned, LGBT establishment was given notice to vacate and was ultimately forced to close in 2010.

In honor of World AIDS Day, The Center will focus on how the Starlite became a refuge and organizing point in response to the AIDS epidemic. The filmmakers will share key excerpts of their documentary-in-progress, Starlite, and talk with former resident performer Lady Jasmine and long-time patrons about what the Starlite meant to the community, especially in the early days of the epidemic.

Also featured will be the organizers of the AIDS Memorial Park and learning center currently being proposed for the triangle site opposite the former St. Vincent’s Hospital. The proposed location sits in the middle of the neighborhood, the site of significant AIDS epidemic organizing: from the first AIDS ward at St. Vincent’s Hospital to the founding of ACT UP and other advocacy organizations at the Center.

Folsom Street East presents: A Fetish for Fashion February 12


For those of us who prefer our roses thorny and our candy hard,

 Folsom Street East  proudly presents

A Fetish for Fashion,

our first annual runway show and charity auction to benefit the LGBT Community Center. We invite you to join us on the 3rd floor of 208 West 13th Street on Saturday, February 12th for an evening of polymorphously provocative fetishwear from The NY Eagle Shop, The Leather Man, Wonderwear, and ManSkins NYC.

The night’s festivities will also include a special appearance by #1 Billboard charting artist Sylvia Tosun , who will be performing her new single, “World Keeps Turning.”


We can’t think of a better way to kick off Fashion Week in NYC — and support a worthy cause — than with a runway presentation showcasing some of the city’s fiercest leather/fetish/kink-wear designs.

In addition to the runway presentation, this year’s event will also include a cocktail reception and silent auction of luxury adult items to benefit The Center – including our own “Million-Dollar Jock,” which would make even the bravest Victoria’s Secret model blush and turn in her wings.  


Doors open at 7pm on Saturday night, with the show kicking off around 8pm.
 
Admission for the cocktail reception, auction, and fashion show is $10 for standing room and $15 for seats (while they last) and includes one drink ticket.

The after-party will be held at the NY Eagle on 28th Street, with drink specials throughout the evening for fashion show attendees presenting their FSE wristband.

DSG Entertainment Group announce

SNAXX: the 7EVEN YEAR ITCH

Friday, DECEMBER 11thRebel, NYC
 
251 w 30th @ Eighth 
From 10 pm to 4 am     $15

 


a seven year anniversary party for SNAXX . The 7EVEN YEAR ITCH featuring DJs Rich King and Gustavo on the main floor and a SNAXX ALL-STAR LOUNGE with past Snaxx guest djs Joey Falcone, Paul Ferrer, Javier Peral and Bill Pfeiffer. Also coming back for the reunion will be SNAXX legend Paul Short on the door.

This event is not only an anniversary for Rich and Gustavo’s long running Chelsea party for dudes, it is also a celebration of their new partnership with Derek Scott Graves (DSG) and a launch for their new monthly SNAXX dance event. Look for parties up and down the Eastern Seaboard, in DC, Baltimore, Philly, Pittsburg, Boston and beyond.

Having a seven year history of collaboration with the LGBT Center of New York and their monthly Dance208 parties, the 7EVEN YEAR ITCH is also a blowout benefiting The Center and their continued service to the NYC community.

The boys and Derek will bring the party back to NYC to benefit the Center at Rebel, the outer Chelsea club, home to a broad spectrum of parties gay, straight and in between, every third month.Derek Scott Graves, founder of DSG Entertainment Group has worked extensively with Clubland’s big guns and die-hard legends and organizations: Peter Rauhofer, Junior Vasquez, Saint-at-Large, Star69, Pill Awards, the OutMusic awards, even the Eagle! Now DSG is excited to partner with Rich and Gustavo and SNAXX to form a power triad bringing quality shenanigans to a disco near you.


SNAXX founder, Rich King, has been going at it in NYC for many years. Launching SNAXX at the East Village bar the Hole, he made a brief run at the now defunct Slide then landed in the basement of Chelsea’s Westside Tavern. Shortly there after he pulled in hot Brasilian DJ Gustavo Motta to play for the slightly bigger and hirsute denizens of SNAXX. Working under the tagline FUN, FRIENDLY, FURRY, FOXXY, these two continue to bring a speakeasy vibe alternate Fridays to their burly boite. Together they have a long-standing reputation for bringing new music and a great party to those in need. Besides their regular SNAXX, they have thrown six years of SUPERSNAXX, a gay pride blowout  at Cielo. The past two summers have seen them take the show to the shore with SUMMERSNAXX by the Sea gigs at the legendary Ice Palace in Cherry Grove and the Paramount in Provincetown.

Out To Work LGBT Job Fair September 17

         
The 3rd Annual Out to Work job fair will be held on September 17 at the LGBT Center in New York’s Greenwich Village.  208 West 13th Street.   With more than 3,000 expected to attend, Out to Work is the largest LGBT career fair in the Northeast.
 
The current rate of unemployment in New York City is at 9.6%, higher than the unemployment rate of both New York State and the country.  This event addresses the needs of the LGBT community in the city where they make up a significant proportion of the unemployed population.
 
Bruce Anderson, Interim Executive Director & Board President stated, “I’m heartened that in the current economic climate, the Center, in partnership with Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, is once again producing Out to Work.  The economic downturn has affected all New Yorkers, including the LGBT community, and one of the best things we can do is bring together major employers in the area with a pool of talented New Yorkers, eager to work.” 
 
This event promotes equal opportunity employment and showcases some of the more progressive companies that support diversity in the work place.  Out to Work will provide a forum for individuals to meet one-on-one with prospective employers and for companies to market themselves within one of the most influential and diverse minorities in the city.  It also offers a chance for business-to-business networking opportunities with exhibitors.

This  is a  FREE  event – Register online for the OUT TO WORK event.
