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!

@HerWinterParty was amazing… Way too amazing to blog like we said

photo (12)See what had happened was…

Yes it is true, anytime a black lesbian woman person says “See what had happened was” an excuse/lie is not too far away.

As my inability to go three seconds without a yawn should tell you, Her Winter Party, the women’s events of the Winter Party Festival was the best lezzie time I have had in a longgggg time.

And yes I have to make that distinction even though this might have edged out Art Basel in my heart.

In the next few posts we will be sharing some of the event highlights, but there were some personal standout moments to me that I want to kick off the posts with:

* Being commended by Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and ACTUAL superlesbian, for the increased attendance and diversity of lesbians this year.

* Getting to chat with the lovely guys of the Paul and Matty show about Her Winter Party, giving voice to the lesbian community and how important safe sex is to us as well as the boys.  I can’t wait to share a clip with you guys. (That’s if they leave me in the final audio ha!)

*Partying up poolside with my friends (old and new), my Mrs.,  and the lovely and TALL Jessica Clark  (and yes this link goes directly to her calendar — Yes ma’am).

I am sure I will say this again but I am very very very very very proud to have worked with such an amazing group of people and I can’t wait until we PARTY WITH A PURPOSE again next year! Even though my swollen feet, the Mrs.’ concussion (don’t ask) and my aversion to paying 25.00 a night to park a car I didn’t drive might disagree.

Shoutouts to Lisa, Marivi, Ingrid, Cliffie, Kathy, Yesi of Pandora Events, Lynn of Icandee Events, Amy, Crystal, Znario, Mayren and…  EVERY LOVELY LADY THAT I MET THIS WEEKEND!

Trust me there are more posts..videos…and photos to come (for real this time).

All @HerWinterParty…. All the Time — Let’s Go!

Oh snap! (Yes we brought that back) it’s time for Her Winter Party! We are so excited to be a marketing and media partner with the event and now we are ready to GET IT IN!

Check back here daily as we will be live** blogging and posting pictures from the event all weekend.

(KK will also be tweeting up a storm at @kristiweb, so follow her if you don’t already!

For those who don’t know what Winter Party Festival is about. We snatched this from their website:

For 19 years Winter Party Festival has been making a difference in people’s lives and providing vital funding to organizations serving the South Florida LGBT community. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force donates the majority of the net proceeds of Winter Party Festival and the Miami Recognition Dinner to local nonprofit organizations. Since assuming responsibility for these events in 2005, the Task Force has donated nearly $1.2 million dollars to the GLBT Community Projects Fund of The Miami Foundation.

How cool is that? You know we are always down to party for a purpose.

South Florida lezzies who still want more details, check out the line up HERE.

**See how we cleaned up that live blogging lie (Blame it on the aaaaaalcohol).

Let Me Get A Taste… Love Miami Spice

Well howdy to the 5 people who clicked on here thinking this was going to be one of my erotica posts… it’s not.

But you can go check out one of my oldies here. There is sex and slurping involved I promise….

I guess the picture WAS a bit misleading. I actually don’t even know what the picture I have attached is about. I googled “Miami Spice” and found a half naked brown woman… I was good with that. She could be curing cancer for all I know. If you are interested in learning more about this picture go over there.

DON’T FORGET TO COME BACK

For those who don’t live in Miami, Miami Spice is an annual event where some of the area’s best restaurants create fixed-price menus for dinner and lunch. It is definitely a fattie… I mean foodie’s favorite time of year. This year I had a very aggressive plan to hit up 10 new spots but that didn’t happen *insert a sad face here* but I did try a respectable 8.

So this post is for the ladies who only talk to me in and around Sweetheat/Sizzleher/HerWinterparty wanting suggestions on where to eat *side  eye* take a look here so we can skip the small talk. (Yes, you).
