Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, the makers of the documentary film Bully, and Time Warner will be honored by the Hetrick-Martin Institute, an LGBT youth services group, Monday night, and there are still tickets for the awards ceremony’s gala after-party.
They are this year’s recipients of the Emery Awards, which the institute bestows “in celebration of individuals and corporations that exemplify HMI’s mission of providing a safe and supportive environment for all young people,” according to a press release. The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.
The after-party, beginning at 9 p.m. at the Altman Building, will feature a performance by Grammy-winner Estelle. Andy Bell of Erasure will be a DJ for the party, as will popular New York DJ Jonjon Battles. There will be an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and plenty of dancing.
All proceeds benefit the institute, which provides a variety of services for young people and is the host agency for Harvey Milk High School, an alternative public school for at-risk LGBT students. For tickets, click here.
