Hillsborough County Residents Unite Against Bullying Candlelight Vigil

 

Last Sunday we gathered in solidarity against bullying in Hillsborough County and hold a candlelight vigil down 7th Ave. in Ybor City to honor the memory of all our young gay teens who recently committed suicide and/or are presently being bullied in schools. People wore purple in remembrance. Organizers included MCC Tampa, Pride Tampa Bay, SOCR, Hillsborough GLBT Democratic Caucus, GaYBOR District, Equality Florida, Gay American Heroes, GSA’s in Tampa and Interfaith Coalition.

Currently in the building stages and coming soon will be a new high end piano lounge in the Ventana, Channelside. This is going to be a huge hit in our community. More details coming soon! Brenda Halloway from the Ybor Hampton Inn went to the national GLBT Travel Convention in Las Vegas, where she donated a Pride Basket from GaYBOR to be auctioned off. Thank you, Brenda, and viva la GaYBOR! It’s getting a whole lot scarier in GaYBOR with all the Halloween decorations going up! What is everybody wearing to the All Hallows Fantasia Ball this year? This year the trolley car will stop at the Hampton Inn Ybor and will take you to the convention center. The Streetcar Fest has changed from October to Saturday, November 13th. Hop on for only a quarter!

A huge thank you to everybody who made my birthday such a special day! Five birthday cakes and 6 parties! WOW! For wanting a quiet birthday this was fabulous! Judy B Goode & Paul Thomas threw a party for me at the Dive Bar & Grill on the Saturday before. On the morning of my birthday Carrie and I celebrated at home in the morning with our pets, Miss Amber and the 2 cats! Brenda surprised us with a luncheon birthday party at the Seasons 52 restaurant! Back at work and who walked in but a monkey singing telegram compliments of the Hampton Inn & Suites Ybor! Happy hour and there was a surprise party at The Crowbar with Bonnie and the gang. Off to dinner at Hamburger Mary’s. Rich & Stephen both baked me a cake using their mother’s old secret recipe! Kicking and screaming like a little girl they dragged me into The Reservoir Bar for a birthday spanking by Mamma! To finish the night out it was dancing and laugher with good friends and family at G.BAR! This was all great! I think we should do this again every day this month! So how old am I? Let’s just say that I am 7 days older than Scott Spar and somewhere between 21 and death!
