Gentlemen’s Ball celebrates LGBTQ activists, entertainers in style

Hundreds of black LGBTQ men and their allies dressed to the nines on Saturday for the 7th Annual Gentlemen’s Ball.

The ball is always the marquee event in a weekend of empowerment and celebration, so it’s fitting that it was held at the Marriott Marquis.

The weekend included a welcome reception and scholarship ceremony on Friday and a farewell brunch and day party on Sunday.
