4.1.10: Today’s Guests

Today on the Lisa D Show we’ll talk about blogging at Fort Bliss, gay animals and Queer Cinema.

First we’ll talk to Samantha Reho, Public Affairs Specialist at Fort Bliss, about a very cool event, Bloggers Roundtable on April 6. From Reho “Fort Bliss and the El Paso community have a tremendous relationship and we're looking for other ways to share our messages across all mediums. During this roundtable, you will have the opportunity to meet other influential El Paso bloggers, discuss opportunities and advancements at Fort Bliss with the post's Public Affairs Office staff and exchange ideas of how we can work together to share the most accurate and up-to-date post and local community information. Our goal is to further enhance and strengthen our ties with you and other respectable bloggers and further highlight the magnetic bond between our community and the post.

Both myself and Jaime Abeytia will participate in this event and look forward to reaching out to the Fort Bliss community in this viral kinda way! For more information on how you can attend the event, call 915-568-3731.

Next we’ll talk to David Villanueva, marketing and publicity, Frontera Pride Film Festival about the “Film By You” Movie Contest and the Month of Queer Cinema.

Film by You” Movie Contest Info
“Film by You” movie scene reenactment contest on YouTube. “We wanted to create a contest to get El Paso and its surrounding communities excited about the festival and film in general! So what better way to do that than to have people reenact their favorite movie scenes for all to see. And so we came up with the “Film By You” Video Contest.” The 2nd Annual Frontera Pride Film Festival will be June 18 and 19, 2010 and the winners of this short and sweet contest will be announced all during the festival. Winners will receive various items donated by local business who support the festival. For more information on the contest and to see the complete set of rules please log onto their website or log on to the contest page at

Announce a Month of Queer Cinema Info
April will celebrate a month of queer films at two local independent cinemas. There will be nine (9) films shown at either the Fellini Film Café on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. or The Percolator on Saturdays at noon. The selected films comprise both classic LGBT-themed and those with a strong queer following. All screenings are free to the public, with the request that the host venues be patronized.
