Tomorrow: New 'Housewives' premieres yet Andy Cohen still made other plans -- that's how you know it's important

by Jeremy Hooper

It's a bit of a rebuilding year for New York's Empire State Pride Agenda. A new Executive Director. New staff in other key positions. A new governor and a host of new legislators come January. And then there's the aftermath of one truly shitty marriage vote to reckon with. There are no two ways about it: ESPA is a scrappy organization with a tough, in-flux fight ahead.

But tomorrow night in Manhattan? The principled push forward gets paired with a nice canapé for ESPA's annual Fall Dinner, where supportive senators, beauty queens, Carrie Bradshaws, "Real Housewives" drama front-row-seat-havers, and more will come out for an autumnal reminder of where the state is, where it needs to be, and how we all get there from here. The deets:

ESPAWHO: U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand – To deliver remarks

Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen – Hosts
