Qulture covers the Fabuloso Happy Hour Mixer, DTLA

07

On Thursday, November 19th, 2015 Qulture.Org had the privilege of covering an exciting networking event in downtown Los Angeles, the “Fabuloso Happy Hour Mixer,” put together by two of LA’s leading LGBTQ Latino organizations, the Latino Equality Alliance (LEA) and Honor PAC. While LEA’s focus is to promote liberty, equality and justice for the Latino/a LGBTQ community, Honor PAC’s mission is to advocate for the political empowerment of the Latina/o LGBT community by supporting candidates and ballot propositions that advance progressive policies that directly address the unique needs and interests of LGBTQ Latinos.

The event took place at REDLINE Bar & Lounge, one of LA’s newest premiere gay locations, and was MC’d by Eddie Martinez, Board Member of the Latino Equality Alliance, and Mario Ceballos, President of Honor PAC. All proceeds went to benefit the services offered by these two amazing organizations.
