First, let me reiterate that there is no connection between myself and the Winter Party Festivalother than the fact that having attended the 2005 and 2007 events I subsequently donated my Winter Party Festival photography collection to the Stonewall Library & Archives in Fort Lauderdale FL.
Secondly, in conjunction with my photography and my writing I regard my music mixology as documentary in nature. Which is why in recent months that in connection with my FLASHBACKS project my music mixes have revisited the disco and dance music spanning a period of more than 30 years.
Realizing the importance of disco and dance music to the gay culture and heritage ... and as I have done with several of my "gay oriented photography collections" ... the Elvert Barnes Miixology collection will be donated to the Stonewall Library & Archives.
Each year since 1998, Winter Party Festival and Centaur Music have collaborated in the production of an annual Winter Party Festival Compilation collection which features some of the biggest DJ names on the circuit. Visit Centaur Music for information.

Valentine's Day is a perfect time to stop for a moment to think about how far we've come in ending marriage discrimination - and also about how much more we have to do to ensure that loving couples can share in the responsibilities, protections, and commitment of marriage.
I recently joined the Freedom to Marry team. In Washington D.C., I was blessed to work with an amazing group of gay and straight people to pass a marriage bill and soon, same-sex couples will be able to marry in the District.
