Fashion Icon To Be Honored

By Charlotte Robinson, March 23, 2018
New York City's LGBTQ Community Center will honor Dame Anna Wintour with The Center's Visionary Award in recognition of her long-standing, unwavering support & encouragement of the LGBTQ community within both the fashion & media industries on Thursday, April 19th at its annual Center Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street. At a time when it matters more than ever, Ms. Wintour has encouraged Condé Nast's coverage & amplification of LGBTQ voices through the support of publications such as Them, as well as Vogue's in-depth features on Chelsea Manning & transgender children last fall. Her dedication has been steadfast & powerful. Ms. Wintour has held the position of Editor-in-Chief of Vogue since July 1988 & was named Artistic Director of Condé Nast in March 2013. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her leadership & charitable efforts, including the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Lifetime Achievement Award, the Ally for Equality Award from the Human Rights Campaign & the Award of Courage for AIDS Research from the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR). Each year, Center Dinner brings together over 800 influencers & tastemakers in the LGBTQ community to raise funds for The Center's programs & services with a special emphasis on supporting youth programs. The Center is dedicated to empowering LGBTQ youth to become healthy, successful adults through substance use treatment & prevention, leadership & employment opportunities & HIV/AIDS prevention & education. The Center has long been the hub for our NYC LGBTQ community as a catalyst for progressive social change & a provider of critical services for the community.
