SUNSHINE, LOLLYPOPS, AND RAINBOWS

Lesbian pop singer Lesley Gore was honored with the William Passanante Award at the Village Care of New York Legends of the Village Awards on Monday at Strata in the Flatiron district and she treated the crowd to three of her hit songs.

Other LGBT honorees this year were Rollerena, peace activist David McReynolds, renowned tour guide Joyce Gold, and photographer and draft counselor Karl Bissinger.

Village Care is the group that saved the Village Nursing Home almost 30 years ago and operates a network of HIV/AIDS services, including Rivington House on the Lower East Side.
