Greg Louganis, Peter Paige, Wilson Cruz, Tuc Watkins and others turn out for garden party for GLEH
Am finally feeling much better and in the mood to schmooze.
What better way to re-enter the social scene than at a garden party held Sunday afternoon at the Hancock Park home of Abbey founder David Cooley.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center presented the party benefiting Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing (GLEH), the premier developer of LGBT-friendly affordable housing for low-income seniors.
Two seniors spoke passionately and movingly about their lives and about their experience living in housing that is especially for LGBT people.
It was a wonderful event and let me just say that the bread pudding alone made it all worth it.
