Last Friday evening, November 12, Gay Men of African Decent (GMAD) honored the legacy of its founder, Charles Angel, during its annual awards ceremony at the Brooklyn Museum of Art at Grand Army Plaza.
The recognition this year went to seven honorees—John Demsey, president of MAC Cosmetics and chairman of the MAC AIDS Fund; Howard Buford, CEO of Prime Access, Inc.; Len McNally of the New York Community Trust; Gordon Chambers, Grammy Award-winning songwriter and singer; Donna Payne who works for the Human Right Campaign; Harold Robinson, the former chairman of GMAD’s board of directors; and community activist Michael Saunders.
“GMAD takes pride in acknowledging the outstanding contributions these individuals are making on behalf of the LGBT of color community,” said Tokes Osubu, GMAD’s executive director. “We are committed to encouraging their efforts by rewarding them at this affair”.
R&B singers Meli’sa Morgan and Christopher provided the evening’s entertainment.”
