MC Solsis graced the spot. Candace IIoh performed and many beautifully dressed people filled the brink of the place. Howard University students seemed to overwhelm the population, shout here and there but goodness world for all the educated souls that are being produced.
Only snagged a few photos.
Loew's Hotel was the location, attending DC black pride workshops was the mission.
(Unfortunately I left my camera sitting in my car in Camden, NJ @ the PATCO station. Boo!)
BUT::Attending dialogues on both labels and stereotypes and a Transexual/Transgender workshops, I learned and also expressed some views myself. The workshops were well put together, bringing facilitators from NY for the labels discussion and local Philadelphia LGBTQ awareness orgs.
Monica, good friend all the way from Oklahoma who now lives in philly hosted me. We met some lovely women and men alike. I also met her roommate who is a brilliant Photographer, world traveler and Howard Grad. Check Akoben Sankofa's work!
My travels were safe and blessed, that is all I can ask for.
