Philadelphia Gay News: The Delaware Valley Legacy Fund will host its seventh annual HEROES event from noon-3 p.m. May 19 — this year featuring a new location and after-party and a new award.

DVLF will also present its National HERO Award this year to an individual — out figure skater Johnny Weir. The award has in the past been given to a nonprofit organization doing national LGBT work.

“Johnny Weir is from Coatesville, and we love it when the national awardee has roots to our community,” Giusti said. “He has been generous with his time by volunteering for different LGBT organizations, specifically those with LGBT youth connections. Weir’s contribution to the LGBT community and his focus on youth is really important to us as an organization that is focusing our grantmaking on youth this year.”
