Better late than never. The turnover rate for this post was rarely slow for this fashion symposium. However, last Saturday November 9th I attended a special exhibit at The Museum at FIT. Knowledge is power, and I learned about gay architecture and how bankers did not want to back homosexual designers because many died during the aids crisis at "A Queer History of Fashion." This was the first museum exhibition to explore in depth the significant contributions made by LGBTQ individuals over the past 300 years. The two day program ran like a hourly job, from 9am to 5pm. I attended the later portion ofthe  event, just missing Ralph Rucci. There were several guest speakers, although I only heard from Reina Lewis, Joel Sanders, Omar Sharif Jr and I would like to thank Fred Dennis who made the whole thing possible.
