Healthcare professional by day and LGBTQ+ nightlife promoter by night, Cassie Duprey strives to practice what she preaches in all her endeavors. “It’s important to treat each other with love and compassion,” she says. “We all have our own personal battles in the world.” During the height of the COVID crisis, Duprey expanded her role in the medical community as a medical office manager at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery, where she took on a front line position as a registrar at a New Jersey urgent care facility. There, she screened and registered ill and frightened walk-in patients prior to their appointments. Throughout her 13-year career with NY Dreamgyrl, her nightlife organization, Duprey has also worked hard to serve the needs of New York’s BIPOC LBTQ+ women by producing hundreds of exceptional parties, local events and destination events that serve to provide essential and safe spaces for her community. Most recently, Duprey has established the Dreams Become Reality Foundation, an LGBTQ+ foundation dedicated to raising funds and awareness for several important charitable organizations including Princess Janae Place, which provides housing assistance for trans persons, and New York’s Hetrick Martin Institute, which provides a huge array of services for LGBTQ+ youth. Through both her professional work and her philanthropic efforts, Duprey believes that it’s fundamental to “always try to show compassion and be kind to one another.” —RK
