The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, a Washington-based group that offers strategic, technical, and financial support to openly LGBT candidates and officials, held a fundraiser in Manhattan last week, and honored one of the group’s all-time big winners—New York City’s new City Council speaker, Christine C. Quinn, shown here with board member Scott Widmeyer. Quinn is among more than 300 openly gay, lesbian, and transgendered elected officials across the nation. This year in New York, one of the Victory Fund’s major endorsements is for Sean Patrick Maloney, the former top Clinton White House aide running in the Democratic primary September 12 for state attorney general.
