Hey LGBT Family,
 
I've gotten a lot of letters requesting info on the Anti Violence Gay  
March/Rally and Kevin Aviance tribute....
 
I'm sorry I couldn't answer all of your letters this weekend as I've been  
stuck in "retail hell" paying the bills...
 
Here's a copy of the Scandelle MySpace blog that I posted later that  day!
 
Hope this helps...
 
BE HAPPY BE SAFE BE YOU!
 
ALL MY LOVE,
 
SCANDELLE
 
Hey  ALL,

Thanks for the kind letters of love and support for all of us here  in NYC 
during this challenging time...

Just to let you all know that our  ANTI GAY VIOLENCE rally and march was 
successful!

It was well attended.  Some of your favorite GLBT Out performers were 
there... including "Gay Pimp"  star Johnny McGovern - from one of my all time 
favorite Gay movies "Broken  Hearts Club" star singer song writer and a real 
sweetheart "Billy Porter", NYC  Legend Michael "Formika" Jones, DJs Jon Jon Battles, 
and DJ Tennessee, Drag star  and Rally organizer Hedda Lettuce (VERY PROUD OF 
HER-SHE DID AN AMAZING JOB AS  HOST/MC) Drag star legends "Sweetie" & "Sherry 
Vine",Out music chairperson  and friend Ed Mannix, Porn Mega Star Michael Lucas 
and Will Clark, My good  friend and buddy superstar DJ Randy Bettis, The Ones 
singing sensation and my  old high school friend "Paul Alexander".

Special shout out to a friend  and music superstar ARI GOLD for making his 
powerful presence known and for  giving us his words of wisdom , hope and 
inspiration!

And the HUNDREDS OF  BRAVE PEOPLE FROM THE LGBT COMMUNITY AND OUR FRIENDS AND 
FAMILY THAT CAME OUT TO  SHOW THEIR LOVE AND STRENGTH!!! 

SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO THE INCREDIBLE 70  YEAR OLD WOMAN THAT WALKED THE ENTIRE 
MARCH IN THE HOT NYC SUN WITH HER  "WALKER" --  "A TRUE HUMANITARIAN" - WHO 
KNOWS THE MEANING OF THE WORDS  LOVE THY BROTHER AND SISTERS I WILL ALWAYS 
REMEMBER HER ...

I am also  very happy to report that our HERO of the day "KEVIN AVIANCE" made 
a brave  appearance and actually was able to show up in makeup and speak a 
little in  spite of the pain he must be in...

CAN'T KEEP A GOOD QUEEN DOWN  BABY!

It brought me to tears to see him like that! But I'm telling you-  he truly  
represents of the strength and power that lies in our community  and his 
message of awareness and LOVE CONQUERS ALL was on point! He is going  make a full 
and speedy recovery and is grateful to everyone for their continued  love and 
support!

We must not  forget the other three victims that  were also brutalized later 
that week in separate incidents of assault/hate crime  also here in NYC and 
Queens!

We marched proudly for all!!!

And as  pride comes forward with more events etc. I still want to reinforce 
the need for  all of us to look after one another and to keep our eyes and ears 
open and alert  as possible while we continue to celebrate our lives .

Also please be  sure to go to www.kevinavianceworld.com and make a donation 
to help him get  through this ordeal with love, support and dignity. He 
deserves all of our  support!

I will be posting information later this week with names and  contact 
information of organizations that are set up to help and support victims  of hate 
crimes throughout the country.

And even though I see that it is  costing me some "fans" I WILL CONTINUE TO 
POST INFORMATION OF THIS SORT IN THE  HOPES THAT IT WILL HELP SAVE LIVES!!!!!

THERE IS MORE TO CELEBRATING  PRIDE THAN PARADES AND PIER DANCES.... SORRY IF 
THAT PISSES SOME PEOPLE  OFF...

I'M JUST BEING ME.

ALL OF MY  LOVE,

SCANDELLE
