On June 25th, The Long Island Press held their 11th annual Power List event, honoring and commending 50 Long Island leaders who have considerable influence over daily life on Long Island.
The Long Island Press said in recognizing David Kilmnick:
“This local gay and lesbian rights advocate has come a long way in his 20 years of combating homophobia. Kilmnick has expanded what started as Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) in the ’90s into the regional Long Island GLBT Services Network, which outgrew its Bay Shore community center, opened a satellite facility in Garden City two years ago, and announced that this summer a third center is set to debut in the Hamptons. He’s also recently made headlines organizing the nation’s first LGBT PTA. He has long since proven himself to be an effective leader dedicated to political advocacy, to helping senior members of the LGBT community and to annually providing more than 25,000 Long Islanders with health and social services.”
