ADL Banquet honoring Mary Bonauto

Last night I attended the Anti-Defamation League's banquet honoring Mary Bonauto for her work over the years as the lead attorney at Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD). It is Mary's work that ld to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's decision allowing same-sex marriages in Massachusetts. I as co-chair of the Cambridge GLBT Commission and Mal Malme, another Commissioner, were invited among the 400 or so attendees. There were a number of very fine speeches about Mary and her achievements and a couple of videos. And the food and drink was good.

At tomorrow's annual Pride Brunch in Cambridge City Hall (the 23rd) among other things we are giving an Organization Recognition Award to GLAD. (The icon above is from 2001 - there is a rainbow flag hanging on the flag pole now).
