D.C. Leadership Awards draws big crowd, is huge success

A 450-plus crowd turned out May 6 for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s D.C. Leadership Awards honoring U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold and U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr. (pictured), Pulitzer Prize winner and Brokeback Mountain author Annie Proulx and Food & Friends, an organization that provides critical support to people facing life-challenging illnesses. The event — the first full-fledged dinner the Task Force has done in D.C. in 13 years — raised nearly $200,000.
