"I have been an out
and proud member of Buffalo's gay community for more than a decade and
wanted to give something back to the community. It is my hope that I will
be able to provide some new opportunities for local gay artists as well
as give them an opportunity to showcase their work in an environment that
celebrates our diversity."
WHY: As an official part of the 2009 Pride Buffalo festivities, 464 would like to present a show that celebrates the vibrant color of Buffalo's LGBT arts community.
