LVGN would like to thank everyone for making the Fruit Loop After-Pride Block Party, a success. LVGN, the staff of Piranha, 93.1 The Party, and the events corporate sponsors, all worked (highly stressed) together to make the event possible. This event was literally taken right from the ‗drawing board‘ and made reality in less than a month. I would like to thank Paul San Felipo for being the instigator and main investor for the event. Also, Thank You to the other ―Loop‖ Business owners: Wes, Howard, Kay, and all of your staff for supporting it. Kristin W, personally is my favorite singer so I will cherish this memory my whole life. My favorite part of the whole event was sound check. We have now reached the sixth issue of LVGN‘s Little Black Book. I really would like to thank everyone, who has made the LBB, what it is today. I appreciate all the compliments and even more so the critiques made. Many of our readers have approached me, to acknowledge the changes made to improve the LBB, by taking our readers opinion into consideration. I would also like to note some changes made to LVGN. Our release date is now mid-month, this will allow us the ability to have current content, regarding events photos, in our magazine each month. I tried it out last month as a tester, and it worked. I also now title each issue with a theme. To show what direction
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
This month is our Awareness Issue. The LBB was originally designed with a specific ideal, I wanted to always follow. A guideline on how we portrayed our part of the LGBT Lifestyle. If you noticed we never list any classifieds, masseurs, or personal ads. This same ideal goes for any kind of activism. There is a thin line when It comes to activism and personal agenda. Also, so many times, the issue is actually overlooked and the focus is mainly on the activists, themselves. I may occasionally give my personal opinion, but I will not try to re-direct the readers opinion on any issues. There are so many others in similar positions, whose goal is to achieve just that. So I feel sometimes, it‘s a good escape to not have to stay focused on such ‗drawn out‘ issues. Some may disagree, but to remedy this, I released our Awareness Issue. With the addition of more columnists, some of our already established ones taking a different direction, and the different layout of each issue. I‘m making it, ―Aware‖, for you, our readers. I hope
you enjoy .
―have to appreciate the Eagle .... got both my boozy bitch and W.T.F. pics for next month all within 10mins of each other”..

Ok… So ‗LezBeHonest‘ — Af t er
By: Meckell Milburn
leaving Dinah, SweetHeat, or a Pride in Anywherebut-here City, USA, it‘s easy to feel as though Vegas‘ lesbian scene pales in comparison to that of other cities. In reality, we are well on our way to establishing a pleasant little ‗dykey‘ oasis in the midst of our desert.
We sit at a critical point in the timeline of gay Vegas pride. We have come a long way since 1983 and it‘s only getting better from here. I mean, I‘m sure some of you are sick of running into your ex at every ―girl night‖ in the city and there are some of you that have been dodging the same chick you hooked up with when The Cave was still around. What can you do? The community is small. But even under these circumstances we can still see the growth the Las Vegas Lesbian community has had over the years. Women from every walk of life can now feel comfortable among women with similar interests. We have organizations like the Betty‘s Outrageous Adventure (Bettysout.com) that have been around since 2000 for those sporty dykes that like outdoors and fun group activities. If your idea of a good time involves a drink in one hand (or both if your courageous) and music blasting in the atmosphere, Candybar (3663 Las Vegas Blvd), Candy Kisses (3400 S. Jones), and Lipstick (3430 E. Tropicana) are all happening weekly right in your ‗gayborhood‘. Ladies even have a mainstream spot to call their own, monthly at Ghostbar in the Palms, if upscale is more your style!
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
One of the newest editions to the scene, started late 2009, is a social networking site and then some, LVLconnection.com With over 500 members to date, this site hosts monthly meet & greets, parties, familyfriendly events, and makes it a priority to support any and all events that we are involved in throughout the city, and believe me, us lesbians are everywhere! My advice- toss any distrust or lack of faith you may have in our community and get out and support these endeavors! What a wonderful time to be out and proud in Vegas!? We are all part of this fast-growing and well developing scene right now. Who Knows? In the next few years, women across the nation may be setting their Olivia Cruise money aside to come and party with us! Then you can really kiss seeing the same old faces goodbyeâ€Ś all youâ€˜ll have to do is sit back and relax, as thousands of women (untouched territory, might I add) pour into the city for you to enjoy.
Writer chose to remain anonymousâ€Śâ€Ś.. Waiting in line, the anticipation builds. A man in all black asks for my government issued proof of age, so I hand him my state license. He quickly glances at it and gives me the motion that tells me it's okay to walk in. As the doors open, the smells of chlorinated water and vodka fill the air. The people by the bar look bored, the place is dead. Little did I know, not many places really have much of a crowd at 11 p.m. They open the before closed sections of the bar, suddenly a crowd fills the space. A circle of men and boys surrounds the dance floor to watch the never-ending drag show; I make my way to the bar. An endless sea of hair gel, over-embellished premium denim and graphic v-neck tees, the feelings of inadequacy were inevitable. With hair so short, gel is unnecessary. My Seven jeans weren't embellished enough and the v-neck I was wearing had no graphic design. Dancing and drinking the night away, I somehow made it to the VIP section. Climbing the stairs was the most difficult task; alcohol consumption really impairs balance and depth perception. Thinking about that experience, the next thing that came to mind was Rage in West Hollywood. The endless staircase and hallway to the upstairs section was eerily pleasant. There is something about a long hallway that makes the idea of a set of twin ghosts appearing seem like more of a possibility. Feeling a need for change and the possibility of a new love interest are motivation enough to relocate, even considering the advice multiple people give. Page 10
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
―Don't ever relocate for someone else,‖ they would say. I never have been the type to listen to others' advice.
Now I find myself in a new city, knowing only a few people I can count on one hand. There are video poker machines everywhere to keep me preoccupied. From gas stations to grocery stores, you are never too far to scratch that gambling itch. The closest thing we had in Los Angeles was the California Lottery, but it's not as interactive. Living in Las Vegas is like living in a movie, a bad movie that never seems to end. Most of the characters lack substance, the scenery, picture quality is bad, and the dialogue consists of, ―Hey, what's your name? Wanna have sex?‖ I usually respond with, ―My name is not important and no, I do not want to engage in sexual intercourse with you, but thanks for the compliment.‖
NO H8 Cam
On November 4, 2008, Proposition 8 passed in California, amending the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley in direct response to the passage of Proposition 8. Photos feature subjects with duct tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest.
Today, the NOH8 Campaign has grown to over 4,000 faces and continues to grow at an exponential rate. The campaign began with portraits of everyday Californians from all â€—walks of lifeâ€˜ and soon rose to include politicians, military personnel, newlyweds, law enforcement, artists, celebrities, and many more. The NOH8 Campaign has received overwhelming support from around the world, appearing on various local and national news programs and publications. The images can now been seen throughout many different media outlets including social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Funds raised by the Campaign will be used to continue promoting and raising awareness for Marriage Equality and anti-discrimination on a global level through an educational and interactive media campaign. Page 12
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
mpaign Rickey: Tell me what were your initial thoughts when you took your first picture for the cause? Did you ever think that you would end up creating such a worldwide movement? Adam: It started of as a small project in our living room but as we saw people using the idea on their Facebook and other social networking we decided to use that as leverage to expand our campaign into different areas and cities. Showing this is a worldwide issue of civil rights and not just a marriage equality issue in California. Rickey: So how do feel about all of the celebrities and public figure that are being so supportive? Adam: Yeah, it been great because at first, we were reaching out to a few people but now if you look we have a lot more of them reaching out to us now. Just to name a few off the top of my head I recently took photos of Isaiah Washington, Kathy Griffin, Jane Lynch, the Kardashians, Dr. Drew, Adam Corolla, Kristen W, Gloria Allred, Perez Hilton its just been a range of people. Its just been great because they not only want to lend there face to the cause they want to go one step above that however in whatever way they can using the resources they possess in the fields they are in. Rickey: I saw that you recently had a photo shoot with Billie Myers. She is being featured in this issue of Little Black Book as well. LAS VEGAS GAY NEWS.COM
NO H8 Adam: Yeah I think we just shot her a few months ago. Rickey: Do you have any photo shoots that really stick out in your mind or that you would consider your favorite? Adam: It is hard to pick a favorite I enjoy shooting the diversity of everyone but I really did enjoy shooting Cindy McCain**. Because I think, it was unexpected and it is good for many people, to see her standing up for what she believes in regardless of all other preconceived ideas. Another person I mention a lot that I thought was really cool to shoot was the lead singer of Anthrax, Scott Ian who came to me to pose. It was completely spontaneously and unexpected driven by the cause alone and no other reason which was cool.
**Cindy McCain is the wife of Senator John McCain. John McCain opposed gay marriage during his 2008 presidential run and his wife rarely speaks out on particular issues. McCain's office issued a statement saying that the senator respects differences of opinion between his family members, but still "believes the sanctity of marriage is only defined as between one man and one woman." The McCainâ€™s daughter, Meghan, has been outspoken in her support of gay rights, and currently features her own shot from the NOH8 campaign as the background on her twitter page.
Campaign Rickey: Are you excited about the growth of the movement, which started in a small studio and expanded: to a city, to a state, then a nation, and soon the world? Adam: It is overwhelming and would not be what it is without the over four thousand faces we have supporting the cause and wanting to make a change. I am thankful to everyone already involved and those that are now starting to. You can find more information on the NOH8 Campaign @ www.noh8campaign.com. You can also follow them on MySpace/Twitter/ Facebook: NOH8Campaign.
Update: April 2010: A measure to repeal Proposition 8 has failed to gather enough signatures to qualify for the 2010 ballot. Equality California and other groups plan a major repeal effort for 2012. The chance for the repeal being a success will be greater in the 2012 presidential election, with its expected higher turnout of younger voters. These voters are expected to more likely to support same-sex marriage. LAS VEGAS GAY NEWS.COM
I‘m itching. Not the, ―I need a trip to the free clinic‖ type of itch, but that overwhelmingly instinctive gut feeling that I must entitle this ―Bleeping With Tom.‖ Care to know why? BeBy Tom Moilanen cause I used to write a gay porn movie review column for another – how shall we say – publication of this very sort, and that discourse was called ―Peeping With Tom.‖ Given our litigious society, it would be no surprise that I might receive a knock on my door from some opportunistic attorney (kind of redundant, wouldn‘t you say?), threatening me with copyright infringement. Over my own title, no less. So how appropriate to alter the sucker to ―Bleeping?‖ I suppose you could try ―Sleeping With Tom,‖ but that‘s been done before. And let me tell you, those who did wound up in therapy. On psychoactive drugs. Confined to little white jackets with one big arm that wraps around the back. Forever terrified of sex. In fact, so permanently damaged that the mere thought of a naked male body resulted in selfmutilation, if not attempted suicide. Want to make a quick buck? Buy up all the Pepto-Bismol stock, and then take out billboard space featuring me in the buff. We‘re talking instant retirement. Therefore, in my concern for the collective good, ―Bleeping With Tom‖ it is. Take that however you‘d like. Do a little censorship if I utter a profanity. Cover your eyes if a racially insensitive comment sneaks its way in. Shove some cotton in your ears if I say something politically incorrect. And lop off your tongue, especially if you find yourself repeating any of this nonsense. Do you realize I‘m 285 words in and haven‘t said a Goddamned thing of value? Think I could have contributed to the healthcare bill? How about a corporate policy handbook? Maybe an accounting statement from the Mormon Church? They all have something in common, you know: meaningless, connotative language, oppressively restrictive regulations, and money. Lots of money. Especially the Mormon Church. Page 16
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
The dry cleaning bill alone for all that magic underwear has got to run into a few sheckles. They also share one other characteristic: My intense dislike that borders on hatred. Yeah, hatred. You know; that universal human emotion we‘re supposed to pretend we don‘t have? That feeling of sheer revulsion that is perfectly normal, yet portrayed as something bad? That internal shudder whenever you see the words ―Harry‖ and ―Reid‖ in the same sentence? Since this is supposed to be about porn, perhaps I should bring up (as it were) a popular performer known as Barrett Long. He‘s been on the scene perhaps a year or so, and seems to be cranking out flicks faster than I can alienate editors. He works for Dink Flamingo, the old-time director who is famous for filming somewhat reluctant military dudes? Whose new production company is called Dirty Bird Pictures, which has spruced up his homegrown goodies into the realm of full-blown features? Yes, there‘s a pun waiting to happen. Be my guest. Just know it‘s been done. A lot. Like Shelley Winters before she discovered fried chicken. Dink and his Dirty Bird Dozen is perhaps most notorious for taking Brent Corrigan under their wing, so to speak. They did a couple of excellent flicks together, then, poof! Brent showed up on someone else‘s menu. Hey, if director Bobby Garcia was still around it could‘ve been El Pollo Loco, but I‘d better cool it with the racial references and the poultry jokes.

I remember, "Kiss the Rain", as the song constantly playing in my car driving around in high school in the late 1990s. Still considering my sexuality, the song helped me battle those internal demons when it came to self-realization of what road I would choose to walk. The singer Billie Myers is the artist who created that iconic song. Her album "Growing Pains" sold millions of copies turning Billie into a Platinum recording artist and cataAfter a seven-year hiatus, Myers is pulting her at the top of the returning to the music scene with a charts. new album, "Tea and Sympathy". Also she is for the first time, breaking her silence on depression - a silence that nearly cost her, her own life. Now having bounced back on her feet again, the singer has much to smile about these days. Her new album, "Tea and Sympathy", in less than 24 hours of its online release, impressively scored a #15 spot on the iTunes Singer/songwriter chart. The envelope pushing musically expansive new CD features collaborations with such highly acclaimed songwriters as Peter Vale, (Lemar, Beverly Knight) Marcella Detroit, (Shakespeareâ€&#x;s Sister, Eric Clapton) and Kristen Hall, (Sugarland). While staying true to the expressive vocals and incisive lyrics that have earned her a loyal fan base and ongoing critical acclaim, Myers has broken new ground musically. Working with UK producer Dee Adam, Myers has fashioned a unique collage of sound that intertwines electronica, trip-hop beats, and bluesy guitars around her live acoustic/rock roots. Not to mention the success she is enjoying as an independent artist who admiringly embraces the DIY approach. Having formed her own record label Fruit Loop Records, after being dropped by Universal.

RS & SYMPATHY” Interview with Bille Myers
She is the perfect example of how modern technology can and should be utilized to not only secure online presence and public exposure but as well how the internet offers a new distribution platform allowing indie artists to bypass the support of the major record labels.
Rickey - LVGN Congratulations on your album
Billie Myers TY
You can find out more info and listen to her music @ www. Billiemyers.com
So I have always liked your music. You can tell that you take moments from your own life to base your lyrics off of. On your new album, there is a track, Wonderful? The lyrics: "You say I wonder what you see in me…. And you don‟t need a parachute … the floor is just an open ground as if your floating on Cloud Nine. Then you have the song. Not another love song… with the opening words…. Sorry I could not make you fall in love and instead of flying you say, “clip my wings." What do you really think of Love?
Billie Myers When I think of love … I think it is like you‟re falling…. When you jump out of a plane, you require such trust with whomever you are skydiving with. And when you are in love, you trust that person completely. But that love goes away and you realize the person you are with is not the same person you idolized and so you do, in a way, sort of crash and burn. Read Complete Interview @ Las Vegas Gay News.com
Evading categorization, non-conformist, Billie Myers truly puts herself out there in a way that artists rarely do today making her music as essentially now as it ever has been. Yet for Myers her musical journey will forever be evolving. LAS VEGAS GAY NEWS.COM
After the Walk, Where Do We Go? As I was walking Capitol Hill, I was thinking about all of those walking in Vegas for the same cause that I was. HIV/ AIDS is a cause that has been on many peopleâ€˜s minds this month. It is the time of year that we all come together from every walk of life to walk together for a cause that affects us all. Each one of us walks for a reason. For some of us, we walk for our lives. Those of us that are infected want to show gratitude to those helping the efforts. Others walk in memory of those they have lost. And many people walk to support the cause for their own personal reasons. No matter why we walk, the important thing is that we all walk together. But after the walk is over and the red shoe strings come off, when do you think about HIV/AIDS again? I know for myself, I think about it every day since I live with the disease. I am not the only one in Vegas either. There are over 6,000 people infected in the Las Vegas area. And each of us has a story to tell. I tell my story as often as I can, that is why instead of being in Vegas for the AIDS Walk; I am in DC for AIDS Watch. To me it is important to tell my story to congress so that they can see a face to the disease when they make decisions that affect us all in the country. But as I was at a board meeting this morning, my mind was in Vegas walking with those that have been there to support me and those that I have helped. Then it came to me, as I was sitting there I was helping everyone affected in Vegas by representing the State on the Board of Trustees for the National Association of People with AIDS. I am the first person to represent the state and I am proud to do my part to make a difference. Page 26
LITTLE BLACK BOOK
As the new outreach columnist for Little Black Book, I am going to challenge myself and all of the readers. Donâ€˜t let the Las Vegas AIDS Walk only be the one time a year that you use your red shoe strings. Keep them on! Keep them on by talking about HIV prevention, looking for ways to get involved, and if you are infected do your part to help in which ever capacity you can. HIV/ AIDS is not going away. So why have we stopped talking about it? From here on out I will be writing about what is going on locally and nationally regarding the disease. Please, if you have anything you want to share about HIV/AIDS contact me at President@MyHIVMyAIDS.org. Thank you though! Thank you AFAN for bringing the community together around HIV/AIDS. Thank you to all of the participants that walked. And thank you to all of you living with the disease and not giving up!

In fact, you could call it fowl humor, but that would be giving me more of a leg up than I deserve, or that anyone else should observe. Nevertheless, you must remain abreast of the situation. Barrett Long has done somewhere around 22 installments, and – like Nancy Pelosi – his ubiquitous presence has led to a disturbing relevance. He happens to have an enormous Johnson, as ―those people‖ would call it, yet said member has its very own eyelid. Or turtleneck. Or any other unsophisticated euphemism you can come up with for ―uncircumcised.‖ Most of his movies contain three lengthy scenes, at least one of which is usually solo. This is a no-no, and a director with Flamingo‘s creds should know that. Give us at least five; keep them quick to avoid the inevitable boredom, and leave that solo business to the jazz sax players or rock guitarists. If I want to see a pitiful excuse for masturbation, all I need to do is look down. Or listen to an Obama oration. One last snarky comment: Dink, please package Barrett‘s discs in box covers that possess distinctive characteristics. They all have the same format, colors, pseudo-classy cursive font, and semi-formal photography. I understand that the consumer brain responds to the consistent logo, but when you can‘t distinguish between installments four and fifteen, you may want to re-examine your marketing. Porn is about the visual, and getting all Shakespearean doesn‘t bode well for the average, uh, Johnson. Thanks for letting me scratch this burning desire to Peep….er, Bleep. I think we‘ll stick with Uncle Tom‘s Crabbin‘ as the official title. They can‘t sue me for that, although I‘m sure the left-of-center language police would love to stifle my pen. Or at least put me in one.

ARIES Is your relationship driving you to drink? Save that bottle of Mondovi for a special occasion. Single? Go ahead and down that bottle of Petron, that is your special occasion .
TAURUS Relationship problems? Get in line. A decision this month is the last you'll have to make for a while. (Yay!) Single? Troubled relationships should be last on your mind, especially with that well endowed someone you seem to like.
GEMINI Put on your best dress and flirt. Don‘t try a new hairstyle till late May. Trust me, you'll appreciate this advice. If you're single, the love problems are passing and a new person arrives early June.
CANCER Thinking about relationship problems won't fix them. Decide what you want and stick to it! However, a relationship might not be what you should get into now, especially if you‘re broke.
If you recently broke up with your lover, I know it's hard; so find a hottie to help you get over it. Not all stories have happy endings. You saw it cuming. And you knew that afterglow stuff isn‘t all it‘s cracked up to be.
SCORPIO Romantically, plan for fewer fights with your lover. All those dumb arguments will come to an end. If you're single, damn, it's on! Don't scare them away with that horny attitude.

CAPRICORN If you run into an old flame, donâ€˜t rekindle the relationship before finding out if they're still into you and single. It might work this time. If you're single, wear your best this month; you don't want to get caught with dirty underwear.
LEO Socialize and you might find someone meaningful this month. If you're in a relationship, screw you! You seem to have a better relationship than anyone. Want something exciting? Try a natural male enhancement product.
LIBRA Give your lover that extra attention they want. You'll be getting in deeper with them. If you're single, meet someone new this month. Go shopping. Get a new outfit as it will bring you luck.
