Ricky Martin To Be Honored

By Charlotte Robinson, March 29, 2018
New York City's LGBTQ Community Center will honor actor & multiple Grammy winner Ricky Martin with The Center's Trailblazer Award in recognition of his steadfast championing of the LGBTQ community as well as his relief efforts in Puerto Rico on Thursday, April 19th at its annual Center Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street. Martin also works extensively as a philanthropist to bring justice, education & protection to children around the world through the Ricky Martin Foundation. He is widely heralded as one of the most influential Latino voices on social media, using Twitter, Facebook & other platforms to maintain an often-daily conversation with more than nine million followers. Martin will be honored along with Dame Anna Wintour who will receive The Center's Visionary Award in recognition of her long-standing, unwavering support encouragement of the LGBTQ community, within both the fashion & media industries. 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 and transgender children last fall. 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. Each year The 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.
