Join us as we return to the beautiful Grace Room-Mate Hotel for a pool party in midtown Manhattan! We have had excellent events here in years past and are delighted to be returning for cocktails by the pool! All are welcome, but we anticipate that this will be primarily a men’s event.

Clothes check is $4. I recommend bringing a towel and checking it with your clothing so it’s dry when you need it to be, though the hotel is providing towel service for $5. We’ll have cocktails at the bar as well as access to their heated pool and spa facilities. Cash is recommended – the clothes check is cash only and there is a $30 minimum on credit card purchases at the bar. A ziplock bag is recommended to carry your cash, so you can feel free to get wet!

Join us for a cocktail party and a close encounter with the Diverse Bodies Project!

The Diverse Bodies Project is a photo-interview series celebrating diverse bodies! It seeks to broaden our view of what is beautiful and delve into the ways we see ourselves and others. The team intentionally brings together queer, straight, young, old, different races, body types, nationalities, and more to create an inclusive project focused on highlighting that diversity includes us ALL. Each individual interview delves into the relationship and unique experiences that the participants have with their bodies to create a project highlighting both the physical and the internal.

We’ll hear from a panel of participants from the Diverse Bodies Project speaking to queer and trans representation in the book. Attendees will have the opportunity to see previews of this beautiful work and there will be mini-book versions available.

The panel will run from 7 to 7:45 and we’ll have wine and light nibbles before and after.

Thanks to our hosts, Princeton’s Martin Kaminer, Princeton BTGALA’s Shawn Cowls and Diverse Bodies’ Yael Rosenstock!
