The GLBTQ Domestic Violence Project, formerly the Gay Men’s Domestic Violence Project, is excited to announce its honorees for its annual Spring Event to be held April 11th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Ames Hotel, Boston.
Each year, the Spring Event raises funds to support services for GLBTQ victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. This year the event will not only highlight the work of the GLBTQ Domestic Violence Project, but it will also recognize three honorees who have worked to improve access for GLBTQ victims and survivors.
This year’s honorees include Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, Kevin Doran, and Verizon. Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, chair of the Governor’s Council to Address Sexual and Domestic Violence, has been a longtime supporter of GLBTQ rights and a staunch advocate for victims and survivors. Kevin Doran, a GLBTQ survivor denied access to free domestic violence facial reconstructive surgery, is the complainant in a groundbreaking legal case to ensure other GLBTQ survivors will not encounter the same discrimination. Verizon has been a corporate pioneer in GLBTQ domestic violence philanthropy and was the first corporation to fund GLBTQ domestic violence programming at a significant level, and has done so for over six years.
Spring Event tickets range from $75 to $250 and are available online. For more information please visit www.glbtqdvp.org.
