This week we bring back Jason Belo’s episode. It’s perfect timing, as he just finished up months of hard work with his Trevor Project team putting together a lovely fundraising party last weekend. The best part was the setup time before the event. You should have seen the two of us: working with a couple of our fellow volunteers to figure out how to make balloon bouquets. While none of us will be hired to decorate a birthday party anytime soon, we had a fabulous time.
As for the event itself, it was fun. There was music, raffle prizes, an open bar, and a very cool photo booth. I’m sure they raised at least some amount of money to further the project’s work, but I haven’t heard the final figures. And now that hateful bi— I mean, *ahem*—Jason is in Maui having a well-deserved mini-vacation while I am here writing about him behind his back. I couldn’t be happier for him. Really.
Actually, we all need to rest up a bit because we are about to embark on some major events. Our own Happy Hour fundraisers are coming up fast! Save time on the afternoons of October 13th (at the Mix) and November 9th (at the Lookout) for some serious happy hour fun. On Saturday, October 12th, we are planning our first season-two shoot date as well. I’m eager to get rolling again.
Even more exciting, beginning October 24th we pack up the entire Front Window Productions crew to go on location—to Albuquerque, New Mexico! That’s right, the gang is headed to the land of Breaking Bad to produce the Mr. & Miss Gay New Mexico United States Pageant and shoot the behind-the-scenes documentary about the making thereof. And that’s only one of the three documentaries we have planned in addition to the regular shows of season two. (Thus the intense focus on fundraising—we need all the help we can get.)
More news and details to come soon!
