Check out GLAAD’s blog on our Know Your Rights Ball! Features photos by NerdScarf Photography, media coverage by OutFM, and a fabulous quote from FIERCE Organizer Tara Tabassi!
“This year’s 2012 Know Yours Rights Ball was a momentous victory of FIERCE’s Safe Space Saves Lives campaign to ensure that the West Village and Piers remain a safe space for LGBTQ Youth. On Saturday, the Piers were filled with hundreds of young people standing up to transform NYPD’s discriminatory policing practices (such as Stop & Frisk), fusing a long-standing tradition of expressing Vogue and Ballroom culture on the Piers with community organizing to know our rights. It was a beautiful night of resistance.”
