There are more than 2,000 athletes across Boston’s 18 LGBT sports organizations, and it’s pretty safe to say they’ve never all convened for the same event.
That could change next year, as plans for the first-annual LGBT New England Sports Award Banquet finally come together almost four years after it was first dreamed up.
The event, modeled to be a gay cousin of ESPN’s Espy sports award show, is scheduled for Saturday, January 26 at the Westin Waterfront hotel.
