The LGBT Community Center of NYC Honors Hillary Clinton and Marc Jacobs

On April 20 in New York, the LGBT Community Center of NYC held its annual fundraiser, and this year, it honored Hillary Clinton with the Trailblazer Award, and Marc Jacobs for his determined and continued efforts for the LGBT community. With a silent auction by Paddle8, the evening raised more than $1.75 million to support the surrounding LGBT community and the Center’s programs. The auction, lasting until April 24, featured works by artists like Richard Prince, Alex Katz, Deborah Kass, Hanna Liden, Zoë Buckman, and Jack Pierson.

In addition to remarks by the Center’s executive director Glennda Testone, guests heard from award presenter Arianna Huffington, who spoke of Clinton, saying, “Hillary Clinton isn’t just a global leader. She isn’t just a role model for women of all ages, including my 25-year-old daughter who is my date tonight. She’s a bigger than life cultural icon, and introducing her is like introducing a part of American history, like the moon landing or rock and roll. And on top of it, this is a woman who singlehandedly brought back pantsuits, which we can all be thankful for. Her career has been long and storied enough to include fighting for progress, achieving progress and now fighting against the backlash to that progress.”
