BTGALA's Shawn Cowls is bringing us back to People for a very special
fall dinner! Our dinners have had a great turn out of folks of all ages.
People serves wonderful pan-asian food. We will have an hour of passed
appetizers and mingling over cocktails (cash bar), a reading /
performance upstairs and then we'll have a buffet dinner with delicious
food for all. We have the whole restaurant for this special event!
many of us, New York may feel like it's being run by Tammany Hall. We
get to the polling place and we are greeted with candidates we haven't
heard of running for positions we may barely understand. We read about
battles over issues we feel we have little input on and wonder why no
one seems to talk about the issues that impact us personally in the
moment. How in a city that is so political could this be? Come talk with
three of our own in-house experts about how New York politics really
works, and how you can jump in on the issues that matter to you...from
fights as big as marriage equality and gender non-discrimination or the way co-op apartment owners are taxed completely differently than condo owners to
those as local as getting a dog run for your neighborhood park. From
community boards to political clubs to PACs and non-profits and peculiar
parties that only seem to exist on election day, New York's strings get
pulled in very unique ways. Our expert panel will discuss the way
things happen here in NYC and take your questions!
particularly welcome gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans men and women
alums from the Ivy League and Seven Sisters schools and our friends from
William & Mary, NYU, Stanford, Duke, UVA, Georgetown, Northwestern,
Amherst, USC & Emory. Our friends and loved ones from other schools
are also welcome, as are current students.
Thanks to our cohosts
