Full disclosure: 1. I love the work that Creative Time does. It is important, at times irreverent, and always forward thinking. If you have money to give away, give them some. 2. I have an intellectual crush on Creative Time's President and Creative Director, Anne Pasternak (pictured above). She is smart, fiercely independent, widely respected, and she had on an awesome jacket last night. That being said, last night Creative Time had its Fall Ball and it was not very creative.
President Obama hosted hundreds of members of the LGBT community and their straight allies at the White House yesterday afternoon for a celebration of Pride Month. There was no glitter, or go-go boys, and given that there was no mention of the executive order on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), we were surprised that there were no hecklers either.
