The IGLTA Foundation is putting finishing touches on Voyage, its signature fundraising event, unfolding at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers on Friday, 26 April. Produced in conjunction with the IGLTA Annual Global Convention, the benefit celebrates and supports a world in which LGBTQ+ travelers feel safe and welcome.
This year’s event will include a special presentation of the IGLTAF Humanitarian Award to Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally (Love! Valour! Compassion!, Master Class) and theater producer Tom Kirdahy (Master Class, It’s Only a Play). The couple, a powerhouse of Broadway, will also participate in an on-stage interview with emcee Reginald Charlot of NYC & Company, who serves as the IGLTAF Board Chair.
“It’s a great honor to recognize Terrence McNally and Tom Kirdahy,” Charlot said. “They have elevated the voices of LGBTQ+ people through their years of contributions to the stage and made the theater a richer, more diverse place for us all. They also have inspired us through their personal activism in support of marriage equality and HIV/AIDS organizations.”
Voyage will feature music from DJ Dawson, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. IGLTA convention registration is not required to attend. Tickets are available via the igltaconvention.org website and may be collected at the Lighthouse on the evening of the event.
