The Men’s Event black-tie fundraiser for Fenway Health is New England’s largest gala for gay & bi men, trans people & LGBT allies. It takes place on Saturday, February 28th from 6P to 1A at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. More than 1,300 people come together to raise over $600,000 in support of the life-saving programs & services for Fenway Health. This year Fenway honors James Morgrage with the Congressman Gerry. E. Studds Award. Morgrage has managed Boston’s premier LGBT gathering spot Club Café for the past twenty years & is a strong supporter of LGBT civil rights & HIV/AIDS causes. When we asked what his personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights, Morgrage stated, “My personal commitment is that I will work in any capacity that I can to help ensure that marriage equality & equal rights are something that are afforded every LGBT individual across the country. I won’t rest until marriage equality is recognized in all fifty states & all the same benefits and protections afforded our heterosexual counterparts are afforded to all of us.” Morgrage is also President & Co-Founder of "Harbor to the Bay"
the annual bike ride from Boston to Provincetown that raises money to support Massachusetts HIV/AIDS programs & services & has ridden each year since the ride started in 2003. "Harbor to the Bay" returns 100% of the proceeds raised by every rider to its 4 beneficiaries every year, including Fenway Health. Comedian Jimmy Tingle will serve as Men’s Event emcee while Boston funk superstars Booty Vortex & DJ Gay Jim from Kiss 108 will provide the entertainment. This year’s event is made possible thanks to the hard work of event chairs Justin T. Isaac, Brian Ramos & Joblin C. Younger, Esq.
