A Riverfront Benefit for the Empire State Pride Agenda

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsOur Wandering Eye blogger, Carey Maloney, and his architect husband, Hermes Mallea, have been passionate supporters of many LGBT causes over the years, but the fight for marriage equality speaks very directly to them. When they decided to finally get married two years ago, they couldn’t have the ceremony at their home overlooking the Hudson River in Germantown, NY; they had to go to Connecticut as Maloney related in his post “Our Blogger Ties the Knot” (April 14, 2009.) On Saturday, June 4, they hung Empire State Pride Agenda banners on their front gates and welcomed more than 250 supporters of marriage equality in New York State for a fundraiser for the Empire State Pridge Agenda whose mission is to ensure equality and justice for LGBT New Yorkers and their families.
