Pride Of The Empire (State)

linda stephenScott Baldinger reports from Rhinebeck. Literally billions of cicadas were screaching out liberated mating calls all around the glorious Stanford White designed Astor Courts on the evening of Empire State Pride Agenda‘s Hudson Valley Engagement on Saturday, June 8. Their deafening sound only occasionally disturbed the event indoors, a jam-packed celebration of the gains that have been achieved for LGBT equality and justice, both throughout the state and the nation, and much with the help of ESPA. On hand were a whole bevvy of Empire State Pride officials and volunteers, supporters and underwriters, and guests thereof. Specially honored was New York State Senator Stephen Saland (pictured at left with his wife of 48 years, Linda), whose swing vote was essential in getting marriage equality approved in the state.
