Hi OUTAstorians,
My name is Rachel, a fellow Astorian and Director of Volunteer Management at GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). I wanted to let everyone know about the volunteer opportunities we have coming up at our New York Media Awards!

The 18th Annual GLAAD Media Awards - New York City

The GLAAD Media Awards celebrate media projects and media professionals that fairly, accurately and inclusively portray the LGBT community. Held in four cities across the country (New York - March 26, Los Angeles - April 14, San Francisco – April 28, Miami - May 10), these celebrity packed events are planned and run by over 800 volunteers! Volunteer opportunities are numerous and exciting – signup now to hear more.

This year’s New York honorees include Patti LaBelle and Tom Ford!

All volunteers are required to attend an additional Assignment Meeting, just before the event. Dates are below FYI, you will pick a date when you complete your volunteer form.
