AmfAR Fêtes Patricia Field
Last night’s amfAR Honoring With Pride tenth anniversary celebration at Edison Ballroom fêted Patricia Field, Lady Bunny, and AIDS Quilt founder and activist Cleve Jones for their lifelong efforts in raising HIV/AIDS awareness. Accepting her Award of Courage from a silver platform-and-orange minidress-clad Debbie Harry, Field emphasized the importance of being brave. “I do what I wanna do. Fear is not part of my act.” Of course, that also means putting your money where your mouth is, hence her winning bid on a ten-person Alaskan adventure cruise later in the evening. “I heard it was fabulous,” Field said of the Last Frontier State. “And now I’m going!” The evening’s event raised over $200,000 for amfAR.
