Out and About: Miami Dade Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Yellow Gala (Gallery)

Goooood morning lovebugs!

I am up early this morning sipping on a well deserved and needed cup of joe. Yesterday night was the Miami Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce‘s Yellow Gala, one of the annual must-attend events for the Miami LGBT elite. (I have no idea how they let me slip in the door…. *shrugs*). I saw some familiar faces and met some new lovely people.

Special hugs and kisses to George and Sean (the Southern Gentlemen — by way of New York), the legendary Elaine Lancaster, James Brown and the Perry Ellis team, Rafa of Wire Magazine (I have a leopard blazer to squeeeeeze into), the GIRLSSSSSS Kathleen and Cindy of Lucky Strikes, my incomparable Karen Brown (I will sip the tea I have.. but I won’t spill it), little Miss Shayna (I’m calling you from Heathrow) and everyone else that made the night wonderful. Here are some flicks… yes I will invest in a camera if I feel I must keep taking pictures #finejudgeme.

Gimme a Dollar! – 25th Annual AIDS Walk Miami

2013awmlogo

I’m back at it again this year!

I’m trying to put my money… and my sneakers where my mouth is. On the 28th, I’m going to do a 5K walk/run benefitting Care Resource, a primary medical care provider for the LGBTQ community of South Florida.

All the money raised will help provide services to over 9,000 of our friends, family, co-workers and neighbors affected/infected with HIV/AIDS in both Miami-Dade and Broward counties. This annual fundraiser also serves as a vital vehicle to raise awareness and funds to combat the effect HIV/AIDS continues to have on the South Florida region.

Thank you in advance for joining in the fight with me. Soooo… yeah Give me a Dollar… or 5… yeah let’s say at least 5. *side eye*

Please visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Care Resource.

 

I belieeeeeeeeeve Crys J. is also participating this year but I can neither confirm nor deny it!
