Schneps media will be hosting the sixth annual Gay City News Impact Awards honoring individuals who have made a difference in the queer community in New York City and beyond. The event is a celebration of their achievements, talent, strength, vision and heart.

The annual event-broadcast recognizes dozens of LGBTQ leaders as well as allies — from grassroots activists to national executives — across a range of fields such as advocacy, the arts, business, entertainment, literature, and more.

Past honorees have included marriage trailblazer Edie Windsor; Jevon Martin, the executive director of Princess Janae’s Place in the Bronx; former Governor David Paterson; activist Anne Maguire of Revolting Lesbians; Andy Marra, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund; and Desmond Napoles, aka Desmond Is Amazing.

Honorees will be announced during a live stream with a live emcee who will be engaging and interacting with online attendees through a chat portal.

Online attendance is free and audience capacity is unlimited.
