Martin Luther King
This publication is dedicated to those
t is our goal to record the positive contributions
people maketo their community and the local community at large. While AIDS andHate CRIMES are certainly not positive things, we seek to draw thepositive from the negative. We hold up Paul Delph and MatthewShepard and their families as models of how human beings should orcould react to each other and how families should support loved oneswhose lives are not in the box right wing religious zealots want themin. Delph, a multi-talented Cincinnatian, died of AIDS in 1996. Hismother shut down her business to care for him. Shepard died in 1998,victim of a hate Crime and his mother worked for years to get passeda national Hate Crimes Bill, which is now law.

WOW!A trip backhome, needless to say I wasexcited.Working at home has itsadvantages; however, oneneeds to escape now andthen.When you visit an event,its generally best to stay atthe host hotel. It doesntmatter if its a bear run, BearPRIDE, International Mr.Leather, or the Grabbys.Luckily we were staying at thehost hotel of the Grabbys,The Hard Rock Hotel.Our first evening, after adelicious dinner at Pizanos,was cocktails at the hotel. Youcan tell some of the handsomehunks were coming in early!We were lucky enough to getto have a personal conversa-tion with a couple of them.Interesting stories you hear.Friday night, we had a show called Cocktails at Cocktail.It was a basic interview onstage at the bar with 30 plusof the porn stars. My job wasto herd them (
much like straycats
) and take pictures of them with the hosts of theshow. Some of them I had toshow how to use a micro-phone. Never thought Idhave to tell a porn star how tohold something near theirnight event.This one wasmore struc-tured, partiallydue to how Ioperate. My job was againto herd VIP porn stars,presenters, entertainers, andother VIP persons. I waseven able to pull in BruceVilanch over for an interview as he was a surprise guestwith Chi Chi Larue. Just incase you were wondering it ispronounced She She.I did get a chance to get aquick glimpse of The Centeron Halstead. Nothingcompared to our one roomschool house that we havenow. But its an aspirationthat we continue to grow, butthat we also fulfill OUR mission. Its nice when wecan expand outside of ourmission, but we need to beable to accomplish that.Besides the people I was inChicago with, the best partwas the reminder thatnetworking is important andnecessary. Its my hope thatwe as a community rememberthat. Its a struggle, but weneed to strive and reach for it.This trip afforded me theability to continue thatnetworking and to spendtime with two of our perform-ers for PRIDE Night,QNation.FM & Steve Reeder.To Steve Reeder, Viz, Miss
