It’s Wednesday, which is the day we’re going to give you updates on Yay New York. We figure that will make summer Wednesdays stuck behind a desk a little more fun. So let’s do this thing.
First off, we’re delighted to announce that DJ Whitney Day will be making us dance our faces off at Yay New York. Whitney is a young up and coming DJ, with a degree in philosophy (perfect), who works at blurring the lines between the LGBTQ scene and the straight scene (even better). After yesterdays talk of going dancing, those of you coming to the Mass Reception for Marriage Equality should be primed and ready for this awesomeness.
Next up: the party will be held in at 320 Studios, a beautiful loft space in Manhattan’s fashion district. There will be booze, excellent decorations, and the best community in the world (if you ask me…)
During the day, the weddings will be held on a beautiful terrace with a a view of the city and the river, with a small reception for family and friends inside.
Here are dates that you need to know:
- Next Wednesday, July 27: tickets for Yay New York (party and LAMBDA Legal fundraiser) go on sale. You’re going to be there, right New Yorkers? Me too! (Eee!)
- Wednesday August 3: Yay New York Tote Bags go on sale. Buy one to support the party, buy one as a secret APW handshake, by one because they are super stylish (designed by And Kathleen).
- Weekend of August 20th & 21st: Regional fundraising parties, APW book club style. Y’all made it clear that you wanted to be involved with Yay New York, no matter where you were located, so we’re making it happen. Our own Cindy is taking charge of organizing regional parties. If you’d like to help in your area, read more about it over here. We’ll be announcing details here, as the parties are planned.
I’m perpetually in awe of what this community can do, and I can’t wait to see all of this unfold over the next month. Here is to you, Team Practical! Here we go.
