SAGE dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ older people will spotlight the resilience of LGBTQ elders & celebrate the generous supporters at its annual SAGE Awards & Gala on Monday October 17th from 6P to 10P at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC. The SAGE Awards & Gala will honor Justice Rosalyn Richter with the Paula Ettelbrick Community Service Award for her activism on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community. Brent Miller will be recognized with The Jack Watters Corporate Advocate Award for his work as Senior Director for Global LGBTQ+ Equality at Procter & Gamble using the voice of brands to drive the authentic portrayal of the LGBTQ+ community. SAGE will also honor Gilead Sciences with the Corporate Leadership Award. Through Gilead’s HIV Age Positively initiative it supports SAGE’s efforts to publicly acknowledge, draw much-needed attention to & meet the needs of long-term survivors and LGBTQ+ older people. SAGE will also posthumously honor the legacy of Trans activist Gloria Allen affectionately nicknamed "Mama Gloria" with the Joyce Warshow Lifetime Achievement Award. Gloria pioneered a charm school for transgender youth at Chicago's Center offering lessons on manners, make-up & love. Among those attending will be Michael Adams, SAGE CEO, New York State Senator Brad Hoylman & Jabari Brisport as well as New York State Assemblymember Phara Souffrant Forrest & Jessica González-Rojas with New York City Council Speaker Adrienne E.
