Rivas makes ‘Faces’ picture perfect
You might have seen the gigantic portraits of community figures during this year’s Pride parade. They were shot by photographer Jorge Rivas who has been busy with sessions for people wanting their photos taken for his Faces of Life exhibit. The opening reception with Rivas benefits AIDS Arms, Inc. and features some pretty amazing portraits.

William Scott releases single ‘Planet Green’ featuring Tim’m West

I mentioned Tim’m West in last Friday’s issue for the sessions he’s holding here starting today. With all that he does to advocate for the LGBT community, we can’t forget he came to light while in the hip-hop group DDC. He’s on his own now and still records his own music, but you can get an ear-glimpse of him here in William Scott‘s song “Planet Green” released yesterday from his album Starlight.

I have to say, I’m kinda lovin’ this groove. The song didn’t grab me right away, but it grew a downright jam. Looking forward to checking out the rest.
