February 8th, 2:00pm: James Angelo Campistrous, Event Planner (owner of J-Angelo Event Planning) and Emergency Room Nurse: but that is just a glimpse of who James is and how varied his career has been. Like his varied careers he became a master of allowing people to see only the parts of him he wanted them to know. He will tell you about a birthday party he planned at which he invited various friends, family, and business associates to an engaging event where he would truly allow them to see and know him for the very first time. The guest list included people from all walks of life, but we will save who they were for the amazing presentation. Come hear the funny and intriguing story of how and why the walls were created and the result of this life-changing party.
March 22nd, 2:00pm: Larry Fuller, Director/Choreographer; Larry’s Broadway choreographic credits include EVITA, Sweeney Todd, On the Twentieth Century, Merrily We Roll Along and A Doll’s Life. He has twice staged the TONY & EMMY AWARDS, which were internationally televised and a summer spectacular at Radio City Music Hall, Gotta Get Away. This is just the tip of the iceberg – wait till you hear this amazing man’s story.
April 19th, 2:00pm: Sean Strub, Activist/Author; Sean is a longtime LGBT and HIV activist and writer, dating from 1975 when he published an article advocating for marriage equality.
