Please join Queerty THIS THURSDAY, June 14, in New York City as we celebrate gay pride with special guest Sen. Mike Gravel, the U.S. Presidential Candidate. In the running for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, Sen. Gravel has bestowed us the extreme honor of meeting Queerty’s readers. He tells us that he’s thrilled to be welcome at this first-ever Queerty event — so we hope you’ll join us in hosting him.
WHEN: This Thursday, June 14, 8-10pm
WHERE: The Star Lounge at the Hotel Chelsea, 222 W. 23rd Street (between 7th and 8th avenues)
ABOUT SENATOR GRAVEL
Senator Gravel supports same-sex marriage and opposes the Defense of Marriage Act. He supports expanding hate-crime legislation and opposes laws that allow discrimination against sexual orientation, as well as discrimination on the basis of one’s gender identity or expression. In the absence of full marriage rights, the senator supports domestic partner benefits for all Americans. He strongly opposes the military’s ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ legislation on the grounds that it is unconstitutional, as it restricts the rights of gay Americans, and he opposes any state or national constitutional amendment that restricts the rights of the LGBT community.
I will be there.
