Join us on May 25th at Tribeca Rooftop as we celebrate LGBT Bar NY's 45th anniversary at our Foundation's Annual Gala! The evening will offer dinner, drinks, dancing, and a rooftop space with 360-degree views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. Help us raise a toast to our community's accomplishments and prepare for the challenges that are to come!
The Annual Gala supports the charitable and educational activities of the LGBT Bar NY Foundation, including our pro bono legal clinics, LGBT Law Notes, Law Student Career Fair, Judicial Fellowship Program, and a host of additional activities benefiting the LGBTQ+ legal community and the public.
As part of the Annual Gala, LGBT Bar NY recognizes individuals or organizations with a distinguished record of service to the LGBTQ+ community, including a sustained commitment to achieving equal rights for all members of our community. This year, LGBT Bar NY presents its Community Excellence Awards, which recognize New York LGBTQ+ legal professionals, across all fields of practice, for their commitment to the LGBTQ+ community and for high achievement in the profession.
Each year, LGBT Bar NY's Annual Gala receives support from the small and large law firm community, as well as corporations and individual contributors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please click here.
