I Walked the @DaretoWearLove Runway to benefit @stephenlewisfdn #charity #lgbtq

The Dare to Wear Love 6 Gala and fashion show took place at the Ritz Carlton Friday, May 12th. It was an amazing evening, raising more than 275K for The Stephen Lewis Foundation‘s new LGBTQ Funding Initiative.

The new initiative will support organizations responding to HIV/AIDS within sub-Saharan African communities where HIV rates are highest.

As always, huge hugs and thanks to Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell of HOAX Couture, founders of Dare to Wear Love. They are two of the most generous people I know, and their tremendous energy brings out the best in everyone around them.

Many thanks also to designer Farley Chatto who created my beautiful dress, which I love!

Lovely man and designer, Farley Chatto

The evening was filled with love and hope. By celebrating the talents and commitment of Canada’s fashion community and artists, we all used our powers for good!

Thanks to everyone who supported me this year, either with a monetary donation to my Challenge or by sharing the event and encouraging me along the way. It all helped!

Below are a few pictures from the evening’s show, but there are hundreds more! You can see them on the Flickr galleries, accessible via the Photos link on the website.

Enjoy!

Stranger at Sunset partners with iTunes

Followers of my blog know I’ve been featuring music here on Mondays for several years, so months before Stranger at Sunset was to be released, I posted songs as clues for the book. It was a fun way to provide hints about the storyline, and it also highlighted music I enjoyed.

As a result of my love for music, Apple app developer and CEO of 2 for Life Media Inc., Diane Hall, helped me set up another avenue to get exposure for my book. If you have an iTunes account and have enjoyed the song clues I left, (plus a few more that were included in the book), pick up the playlist, or buy any of the songs individually. Just hit the compilation of albums below to launch your iTunes account, and you’ll be able to sample and/or buy all 15 songs.

“Taking Care of Business” is an upbeat tune by BTO and also the name of a pivotal chapter in Stranger at Sunset. It’s included in my playlist.

I have to get back to taking care of business myself, so pick up a copy of my book if you want a great summer read!

No Kindle, no problem! You can download it with a Kindle App for just about any electronic device (Click here to get one). If you own a computer, smart phone, iPad, or iPod touch, then you are able to download my e-books.

Have a great week,
