Leaving New York
Moni's on her way back to Houston.
Had a wonderful and informative time while attending the 2012 GLAAD National POC Media Institute and I learned some things that will serve me well in future public speaking engagements and media opportunities.
I also highly recommend that POC rainbow community activists who wish to improve their public speaking skills and media presence consider attending it when the application process opens up for the ones that will take place in New York and Los Angeles next year.
To the peeps attending the 2012 Los Angeles one September 7-9, you're in for a treat.
And speaking of travels to New York, the clock is ticking, it's getting close to time for me to check out of my hotel and make the return trip to Hobby via Chicago Midway.
I leave here with tools to make me a better activist communications wise, being able to connect faces with the names of some of the people I have communicated with at GLAAD and seeing firsthand how hard they work to improve the media images of people of color. The bonus was leaving here with a few more friends than I had when I arrived.
I also get to rest for a few weeks before I make another trip to the East Coast in September for the 2012 edition of Out On The Hill
Later New York. Time for me to head back to the Lone Star State
