Original LGBT Expo

I had an amazing time as a performer and a Host/MC or the talent Main-Stage of the 23rd annual Original LGBT Expo, the largest and longest-running LGBT convention in the world celebrating diversity in business, education, politics, the arts, health, technology, media, travel and non-profit sectors.  Others who performed on stage with me included Constantine Maroulis of TV's American Idol and Broadway's Rock of Ages and Sweeny Todd, actor/recording artist Lovari, recording artist Aaron Paul, Destiny Devine, Carmilla Cann, Ron B., comedian Paul Hallasy, Aris, Tym Moss, dance music girl-group Rouge and many others. A special life-time achievement award was presented to playwright/actor Charles Busch

The expo was held March 12th and 13th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, featuring over 300 exhibiting companies, many of which are LGBT owned and operated, an engaging seminar series, a live entertainment stage, Film showcases and much more!  The 100,000+ square foot show floor also spotlights specific areas dedicated to some of the most popular idustries catering to the LGBT community including the Travel Pavilion, Wedding Pavilion, Small Business Pavilion, Non-profit Pavilion and the new Family Pavilion.
