Heels for Hope

BAGLYEach year there is that one party or event that exceeds expectations and floods Facebook with photos.  For Boston Pride 2014, I think that event was Heels for Hope. When Michael Labrecque and his friends approached BoMA to host a party that involved high heels and helping Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth (BAGLY) none of them realized how many guys would show up. Kudos to the group for raising $2,800 for BAGLY and for hosting what turned out to be one of my favorite parties of the year. Below I’ve included some of the photos from all the fun.

GLSEN annual summer party on Fire Island

Gay Lesbian and Straight Education NetworkI don’t normally write about events on Fire Island but the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is a great and worthy organization I’m only too happy to promote. I also know a lot of guys who read this blog spend time on Fire Island so I wanted to give this fun summer party that helps raise money for GLSEN a shout out.

If you’re not going to be on Fire Island that weekend but have friends who will be – pass the post or information along to them.
