Old Business

IML - It was go go go. There was a pup mosh. Kenneth and Marcus ran the pup mosh and it went really well. Jerry competed and represented us well. There was a lot of shopping.

Comicon - Several people came to Comicon.

There was an event called "Men, Strut Your Stuff" at Comicon and it was primarily young straight men in the audience and there was a lot of great energy, and not a lot of fragility about masculinity.

Blurred Lines Fashion Show - It was impressive to see the time and effort that went into the outfits. It was a fun and different fundraiser. Raised over $900.00

Sir Search - Michael May and Garrett put together Sir Search as a fundraiser for their travel fund. It was a lot of fun, but no one seems to know what the Sirs were judged on. The final category was flirting. Kenneth won, Jeremiah was first runner up, Sir Eric was second runner up.

Gear Night - It was a lot of fun. There were quite a few new people to show up.

Discussion Night - Rocko, Eric and Justin lead discussion night on supporting each other. It was nice to put into words how this group makes some of us feel. It was an emotional night and a lot of people got very vulnerable.
