It was a really busy week as we participated in business expos in Newport, RI and New York City. The Newport Expo drew over a 1,000 participants and the GLBT Expo at the Javit's Center in New York drew over 36,000 folks. Both events were great successes and we introduced the 2015 Poster design by Michael Chevalier of Linchpin, receiving great feedback and support.



Our team at the Javit's Center in Manhattan for the Annual LGBT Expo where we host the Video Lounge with our friends from the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (http://www.liglff.org). Each year, the Festivals bring together a unique team of collaborators who help curate the Lounge, making for an entertaining and enlightening afternoon. From cutting edge new work, filmmaker interviews, live musical performances, fashion, comedy, dance and even a “You Be the Judge” program where you can select the films that will play at the Festivals, the Video Lounge has

become an entertainment mainstay of the Expo.



After the Expo, our team headed to lower Manhattan to the Cozy Dinner for a relaxing meal and a bit of R&R. Great sports all: Timothy Haggerty our Technical Director; Carol Conley (our food guide) from the RI Film and Television Office; Lawrence J. Andrade, Flickers Board; and Shawn Quirk our Program Director holding a dessert for his wife, Katie (who was good enough to let him come with us to play in the Big Apple.)
