Get to Know the Honorees
Since the Dorothy Awards were introduced in 2004, the event has honored more than 30 individuals and organizations that, while disparate in their choice of efforts, have made a positive contribution to the community in some way, in particular in the state of Connecticut. They've been nominated by the Pride Center, their peers and the community at large, and through the Dorothy Awards we recognize their service and dedication. In this section, we document those who have received the award, to ensure their efforts are remembered not just at the event, but going forward.
Meet this year's honorees
This year the Pride Center is proud to honor another well-deserving group: The Sweetheart Invitational bowling tournament; Irwin Krieger, clinical social worker who has provided psychotherapy for LGBT individuals, couples and families for over 25 years and Carolyn and Leslie Gabel-Brett, activists, advocates and a true "power couple."
The event also serves as our largest annual fundraiser. Learn more about this year's honorees by clicking here. Interviews will follow as the event approaches.
