Join us Thursday, October 14th for the 2021 Courage Awards: Celebrating 40 years of AVP. This year there are two ways to attend, virtually or in-person!

The in-person event will kick off at 6PM with a VIP Reception, followed by a walking dinner and cocktails at Pier 59, Chelsea Piers. The virtual event will feature a 30 minute exclusive experience, available just for the viewers at home beginning at 7:30PM EST. All attendees will come together, in-person and online, for the presentation of the Courage Awards, featuring Honoree Senator Thomas K. Duane and Emil Wilbekin.
