AFTER SHARING A TRAGIC STORY ABOUT A 16-YEAR-OLD EAST HAMPTON GAY YOUTH WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE IN OCTOBER 2012, KILMNICK ANNOUNCED THE OPENING OF THE ORGANIZATION’S THIRD CENTER, THE GLBT CENTER OF THE HAMPTONS, THIS SUMMER.

LIGALY ANNOUNCES EAST END GLBT CENTER at SOLD OUT GALA! More than 400 business, political, civic, and community leaders attended the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) 20th Anniversary Gala on Friday, May 10th. A record $250,000 was raised to continue LIGALY’s critical programs. Honorees Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, US Supreme Court Petitioner Edie Windsor, and former LIGALY Board President and NARAL Pro-Choice NY COO Andrew Stern all praised the leadership and work of LIGALY while sharing personal accounts of their journeys and fight for full equality.

LIGALY’s CEO David Kilmnick delivered an impassioned speech that reflected on LIGALY’s beginnings when few believed the organization could survive and prosper in conservative suburban Long Island, to current times where LIGALY is working with more than 110 school districts and has served more than 100,000 young GLBT and allied people. Kilmnick reminded everyone that while the GLBT community celebrates their legislative victories today, they cannot forget the past and the fight that is ahead

of us: Still today, there are disproportionally higher rates of bullying and suicide as well as a reemerging health crisis with more than half of new HIV cases on Long Island being young gay and bisexual men. Kilmnick then announced that LIGALY plans to open its third center in Sag Harbor, The GLBT Center of the Hamptons, to serve East End youth, families, and seniors. Kilmnick said, “It will ensure that no matter where you live on Long Island, whether it is in Mineola or Montauk, there is a GLBT Center that is accessible to everyone.”
