In the wake of a Blue Wave that captured the US House and the New York State Senate for Democrats, the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club held a November 26 gala at Butter restaurant in Midtown. The evening honored Congressmember Jerry Nadler, who will chair the House Judiciary Committee come January, City Councilmember Ritchie Torres, chair of the Oversight and Investigations Committee, “The Vagina Monologues” playwright Eve Ensler, and Broadway star Danny Burstein. Queens Congressmember Grace Meng gave keynote remarks to a crowd that included former Mayor David Dinkins, New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, former Public Advocate Mark Green, and in her first LGBTQ night on the town since acquiring Gay City News, Schneps Community News Group President Victoria Schneps-Yunis.
