The Network

for LGBT Tobacco Control

Amazing Mas-queer-ade ball

Campus Progress, Youth First Texas, OUTmedia, Campus Pride, the National Youth Advocacy Coalition, and the National LGBT Tobacco Control Network sponsored an amazing event last night at Creating Change.  Kit Yan and Vidur Kapur were the big celebrity draws, but the queer youth at the conference stole the show.

Youth First Texas folks put on a fabulous drag show and dance performance and I swear Lady Gaga and Beyonce were in the house.  In fact, Lady Gaga might want to watch her back.  Tons of youth packed the house, as well as conference attendees of all ages and local folks from the dallas community.  We packed the house and rocked it.

The Network’s fabulous scholarship recipient Julian did an *amazing* spoken word piece that blew my mind.  I hear that there’s a video of it out there but I can’t find it.  When I do, I’m posting it and you gotta watch it because it was powerful…in fact, Kit Yan said that Julian spits fire with his words and it’s true.   Wow!.
