GaYBOR Leaders at USF For Grad Panel on GLBT
A summer class introducing GLBT awareness to 45 Grad Education students at USF College of Education had a diverse GLBT panel. “Informative to the Nth degree” one of the grad students said. Attendees speaking on the panel were a gay elementary teacher, a Pinellas County Lesbian nonprofit health administrator, PFLAG organizers and Carrie West, President of GaYBOR District Coalition. The 3 hour panel discussion got into some deep and curricular school changes for GLBT students.”Trying to introduce some conversation and to be willing to talk with GLBT students is very hard to do. But sometimes the barriers need to be broken.” said one of the educator panelists.

People are Talking
Former Yborites, Creatures of Delight owners, Tom & Stewart may have relocated to New York, but they are still an active part of our family. A little bird told us to watch the new film coming out this summer starring Angelina Jolie, Angela Rinna and Mick Jagger and introducing a new creative creature named Sylvia Troll in ”Lips.” Hummm do you think the guys worked on this film? Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar (buffalowildwings.com) have started construction on a new major renovation in GaYBOR/Ybor City. With over 8 million fans of facebook this is going to be tasty fun! Bonnie & Tom at The Crowbar have done it again. The new big Tuesday night party is their $5 liter Beer festival. We have never seen such big beers. Makes you think of the old joke… What’s the difference between a straight guy and a gay guy? A 6 pack of beer! Humm… maybe, just maybe it’s a $5 liter? Tampa City Councilman Charlie Miranda was seen having another power lunch at Tony’s Restaurant on 22nd. Charlie keeps the city in line and greets everyone like the southern gentleman he is. The talk of GaYBOR this week was “Did you steal a pen yet?” Magically appearing on the bar tops at Bradley’s on 7th this week were cups with cards and fancy pens. We must admit there is a Bradley’s pen on our desk right now! LOL Crazy Theresa at Bradley’s has invented a new shot. It’s called “Theresa’s Ta Ta’s!” We never thought we would ever say this but Theresa’s Ta Ta’s were quite tasty!
