About Black LGBT Stories: "I'm From Driftwood" Community Spotlight

New York, NY, January 27 – “I’m From Driftwood” (, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that collects lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) stories from all walks of life, is announcing the launch of their Community Spotlight initiative; every story for one week will be by a member of a typically under-represented segment of the LGBT community to deepen our understanding of each other. The initiative will launch with their Black Community Spotlight on the week of February 6th. This special initiative will give members of the Black LGBT community a chance to share their stories of triumph, tragedy, love, laughter, family, friendship and everyday life. There are as many unique stories as there are important reasons to spotlight the Black LGBT community.

To celebrate the Black LGBT Community Spotlight, I’m From Driftwood invites you to join us for a preview celebration on January 31st at Gallery Bar from 6:30pm to 10pm. You will get a sneak peak at these powerful written and video stories, and also enjoy a one hour open bar sponsored by El Dorado Rum, great tunes spun by hot DJ Missy B., a silent auction and raffle with prizes donated by Babeland, tickets from the Broadway musicals Memphis and Disney’s The Lion King, tickets to NYC museums, an iPod from TekServe, a Mark Fisher personal fitness package, an art piece donated by Avram Finkelstein, a year’s subscription to Ikons Magazine and lots more.
