Laurie’s Work Featured Again in the Huffington Post: 30 GLBT Artists And Performers To Follow

Laurie says:

I was really surprised Thursday when my daughter Cid emailed me that I was one of the artists in the Huffington Post’s 30 GLBT Artists And Performers To Follow.

It was posted for LGBT History Month on National Coming Out Day. This is the second time my work has been featured in the Huffington Post the first was last June in 30 LGBT Artists You Should Know. I felt honored and delighted then and I do again now.

They said:

October is LGBT History Month and we’re celebrating with our party hats on. Especially since today is National Coming Out Day. What better way to energize the festivities than with a rundown of our favorite creative people who are loud and proud? (Well, some aren’t very loud.) ..The artists below all have three things in common: they’re alive, they’re gay, and they inspire us on a regular basis.

My write up and photo of Bob Guter is here in the show. The slide show has both images and videos and is diverse and as they said other then inspiring us on a regular basis…,anything goes.¬† Among the artists and performers are rapper Frank Ocean, writer Camille Paglia, artist David Hockney,¬† photographer Del La Grace Volcano, South African¬† photographer Zanale Muholi, and artist Susan Mikula.

It’s really worth watching the whole slide show!
