Judge Mary Morgan Honored

By Charlotte Robinson, August 14, 2014
Pride Law Fund which promotes the legal rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender community & people living with HIV & AIDS, is having their 35th annual Bay Cruise on the U.S.S. Potomac on Saturday August 17th. This year they’ll be honoring Judge Mary Morgan with the Pride Law Fund Trailblazer Award. Morgan became America’s first openly gay judge in 1981 when she was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown & retired from the San Francisco bench some thirty years later. The sunset cruise on the San Francisco bay takes place aboard the USS Potomac also known as the “Floating White House” when it served as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Presidential Yacht. There will be wine tastings & fabulous scrumptious hors d'oeuvres by La Bonne Cuisine. All proceeds benefit Pride Law Fund's yearlong & summer fellowships for new lawyers & law students focusing on LGBT civil rights advocacy. Founded in 1979, Pride Law Fund has also assisted innovative academic programs, supported the development & distribution of legal & educational materials & financed independent and documentary film projects to educate the public. The cruise will board at 3P & return at 6P at San Francisco Ferry Building, Gate E. Tickets are $125. Pride Law Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit, charitable organization.
