Our Gold Medal winning Free Dance to “Feeling Good” from the Gay Games 9 Exhibition on August 14, 2014 in Cleveland, OH
Chris just put our performance on You Tube, so of course the shameless show biz in me just had to share. But again, THANK YOU ALL for such an AMAZING, SUPER FUN, MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE at GG9. Everyone (skaters and spectators) was so impressed with Cleveland — I may have even recruited some to volunteer in Paris in 4 years! All the best, Marni & Chris

Some banks acknowledge privately the attraction of holding meetings in locations that are less likely to attract protesters, trade unions – or indeed shareholders.
Fab financial in-the-know blog Dealbreaker covered this mermaid (with a bone to pick!) outside NYS Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office, at a protest for the NYS Common Retirement Fund to divest from nasty fossil fuel investments that wreck the climate. Mr. DiNapoli is the trustee of the NYS Common Retirement Fund, the third largest pension fund in the nation. 350NYC delivered 11,000 petitions calling for the comptroller to reevaluate investment decisions, putting people and the planet over profit. Bravo 350NYC!

Great story from The Villager about the Coney Island Gala from fabulous veteran NYC photographer Milo Hess — check out his story: “Freaks, flesh and fun: Coney’s beach in’ fundraiser!” Thanks Milo Hess, veteran NYC photographer who I have known for years, for capturing the evening’s festivities and supporting the lost art of Americana in this party of the year!
"Fed Up" with the Federal Reserve activists Harrison Schultz and Lorna Shannon are trying to start an important conversation about the role of the Federal Reserve, an organization that is NOT a government agency acting in the public’s best interest but a privately owned corporate owned by the large banks. Did you know that graduate federal student loans are nearly 6%, but the big banks can borrow money at 0.75% from the central bank’s discount window. In other words, the federal government can charge interest rates seven times higher than the rates they charge the biggest banks — the same banks that destroyed millions of jobs and nearly broke the economy in 2008. Is that screwed up or what!
