The Manhattan Penthouse on Lower Fifth Avenue was the venue June 8 for the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund’s 12th annual Freedom Awards. The evening honored Governor Andrew Cuomo, in recognition of his work on behalf of transgender rights — with the nation’s first executive directive interpreting sex discrimination protections to protect trans people — marriage equality, gun safety, and a living wage.
