Variety of Fresh Fruit
I was thrilled to be a performer at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe, home of the poetry slams, in New York City's East Village. I was part of a Variety Show Fundraiser for the annual Fresh Fruit Festival. The show was hosted by Frank Calo of Spotlight On theater and other performers included Sonic Uke, Hector Coris (MAC- Manhattan Association of Cabaret), Pistol Pete Struman, Barnacle Bill, Teresa Fischer, Rita Petie, James Martinelli and others. There was an auction and raffle prizes and everyone had a wonderful fruity time. The Fresh Fruit Fesitval is an inclusive, international, celebration of Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgender contributions to the arts held in Manhatten every July. Fresh Fruit's mission is to share the LGBT community's unique perspective, creativity and diversity and to build links between the LGBT, local, national and international artistic communities as well as to the general public.
