Out in the Media - NBC Universal

I had the pleasure of attending the Out In The Media, LGBT Media and Marketing, Past, Present and Future event sponsored by NBC Universal and held in The LGBT Community Center of NYC. It was an event for openly LGBT and supportive professionals who work in the media, television, radio, print, and recording arts. I loved meeting the handsome and intelligent NBC Meteorologist Raphael Miranda, who hosted the panel. The panel included David Bloch of Focus Features, (producers of Brokeback Mountain, Milk and The Kids are All Right), Josh Rosenzweig of Here! and Advocate, Michelle Kristel of In The Life Media and Amy Lesser, editor of Go! Magazine and Quincy Morris creator and producer of the web series In Between Men. They provided some interesting viewpoints and some very useful and insightful information. It was also fun to meet the actors from In Between Men and others who work at NBC, Logo and the industry. It's always a pleasure to see the lovely Sekiyah Dorsett of NBC Universal. Recording artist Lovari (Take My Pain Away, Work It Out) LeNair Xavier, Mark Schulte and so many other friends and colleagues were also there.
