SAGE Honors LGBTQ Heroes At Gala

By Charlotte Robinson, October 19, 2022

SAGE hosted its 26th annual SAGE Awards & Gala honoring the resiliency of today’s older LGBTQ+ community & in an exciting moment during the evening unveiling its new strategic direction. Michael Adams SAGE CEO stated, “SAGE’s board & staff spent the past year not only doing everything they do to make a daily difference for our community’s elders, but also huddling together to forge a bold new direction for our organization’s work that truly meets the moment – that is big enough & transformative enough to rise to the occasion & overcome this crisis so that our elders can live the lives they deserve, no matter who they are, no matter where they live, no matter what they need.” This bold direction & spirit were embodied in the event’s award recipients which included Justice Rosalyn Richter with the Paula Ettelbrick Community Service Award, Brent Miller of Procter & Gamble with the Jack Watters Corporate Advocate Award, Gilead Sciences with the Corporate Leadership Award & Gloria Allen with the Joyce Warshow Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, New York City Councilmember Crystal Hudson was a part of the night’s festivities, opening the event with her remarks stating, “We know that SAGE is committed to New York’s older queer population, the very people who were at the forefront of the queer liberation movement. That is one of the very reasons I am able to stand here before you today as the first out, gay Black woman ever to be elected in New York City.” Since 1978 SAGE offers supportive services & consumer resources to LGBTQ+ older people & their caregivers.
