Lambda Legal, one of the nation’s preeminent LGBT legal advocacy groups, which will argue a same-sex marriage case in front of New York State’s highest court on May 31, held its annual Liberty Awards at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Pavilion on Monday, May 8. This year the group honored Bishop Gene V. Robinson, the gay leader of the New Hampshire Episcopal diocese, Tony-Award winning actor B.D. Wong (“M. Butterfly”), and Prudential Financial. Kevin Cathcart, the group’s executive director, is shown here with Robinson and tennis great Billie Jean King.
