In partnership with The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies (CLAGS) at City University of New York, the Robert Giard Foundation is proud to announce this year's winner of the 2012-2013 Robert Giard Fellowship.

“Cary is a fascinating and articulate man with a great passion for his work,” says Carl Sylvestre, president of The Robert Giard Foundation. “We were impressed by his thoughtful, process-oriented approach to making Go With Flo, and are eager to support his work with the largest fellowship devoted to art centered on human sexuality, gender, and issues of LGBTQ identity."
