Proud and Out Loud
Each year, Pride & Equality magazine selects three outstanding individuals from the LGBT community to act as Vincent R. Johnson Models of Hope. Then the mag throws them an awards show complete with dinner and a silent auction. This year's honorees include Carrie Hamblen from Las Cruces PFLAG, Marcos Sedillo from Albuquerque Pride and activist Bunnie Cruse. Tickets for the event, held at the Albuquerque Convention Center (401 Second Street NW), are $20 each or $30 for couples. Visit myprideonline.com for more.
