Spring Fever 2017

April 27 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Sponsorships on sale now — general tickets on sale March 20th!

Each Spring, a circle of powerful women, friends and allies gather for an evening of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in support of Callen-Lorde’s affirming and inclusive women’s health program while honoring influential women who have positively impacted LGBTQ communities in New York and beyond. Past honorees include actor and comedian Kate McKinnon; advocate and equal marriage champion Edie Windsor; musician, actor and comedian Lea DeLaria; poet, performing artist and political activist Staceyann Chin; and longtime supporter and former Board Chair, Ellen Alpert.

This year we’re thrilled to honor Discwoman for their efforts in creating platforms for empowerment, activism and community building among cis women, trans women and genderqueer people, alongside novelist, playwright and AIDS Historian Sarah Schulman, for her long history of activism bringing visibility to women’s and LGBTQ rights as well as the HIV crisis.

Join us this year on Thursday, April 27th and help us recognize these phenomenal women while raising funds for the women’s health program at Callen-Lorde!

General admission tickets are $150, sponsorships start at just $250, and a limited number of ‘$35 under 35′ tickets are available at $35 for people under 35 years of age.
