GLAAD Manhattan

Join us for an evening of delicious cocktails, passed hors d' oeuvres, and captivating entertainment by recording artists Cazwell and Mary Lambert. 
GLAAD Manhattan kicks off the countdown to Spirit Day, the largest, most-visible anti-bullying campaign in the country supporting LGBT youth. This year, GLAAD Manhattan will celebrate the fashion industry as leaders and champions of LGBT equality, reminding everyone that while this is our nod to fashion, bullying is never in style.


Online ticketing is no longer available. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $150. Thank you.

We're offering some exciting items at this year's GLAAD Manhattan auction. Take a sneak peek now >>

We'll be raffling off two roundtrip flights to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada courtesy of Delta Air Lines. All you need to bring for this raffle is your business card!
