Angel Producer of Queer Black Cinema & Kawana, assistant @ Gay Life Expo '08

At the very last minute Queer Black Cinema was given an opportunity to do outreach at the Gay Life Expo -NY. The expo took place in New York City at the famous Jacob Javits Center November 15th & 16th.  We manage to pull it off despite the very short notice. Special thanks goes out to Angel L. Brown, Producer/curator of QBC and Raphael for volunteering their time and all the new people they will be collaborating with.  Angel express how excited she is about meeting the founder/and former Executive Producers of In the Life, who now runs Chillfest film series in New Jersey.

Queer Black Cinema manage to get over 300 hundred e-mails within two days and give a way over 1000 condoms and safer sex kits. Special thinks to the Lesbian AIDS project at Gay Men Health Crisis and the New York City Department of Health. Want to see more pictures from the QBC@ Gay Life Expo ’08? [Click here]
