June was the business y'all. It really really was. It started with a day party at the Paradox with the #BaltimoreGirls. I had a blast partying there. I went to The Art Room to support Last Born Child for his birthday performance. It was on that day that the city learned that we lost Derrick Jones a.k.a. OOH a.k.a. Yo Slick. The city is still recovering from that loss.
I met with Hope Marsh a.k.a. The Laffin Afro to discuss an upcoming collaboration. I had dinner with two Baltimore Guardian Angels. I hadn't had the pleasure of being in the company to just talk for a while so it was great catching up and just kicking it. I hosted Knicole Taylor's Empowering Minds of Maryland's Youth S.T.A.N.D. event. I had a blast!
I watched my god-daughter graduate to high school! The ladies of The Divas DISH hosted the Gee Thang Drink Launch Party. The outpouring of support for the event was overwhelming. We had a good ass got damn time! I hosted Purple Honey solo on Father's Day. Marcell Russell, 13 of Nazareth, and Larry Lancaster performed. It was an outstanding event and a great way to spend Father's Day.
My son celebrated his 19th birthday. He's been practicing driving in my car. I live to write this so......lol
I went to a Passion Party with my GUR CynDiva. We had a blast. I even bought some thangs. *giggles* I closed the month out by co-hosting Body Banter with my sisters of The Divas D.I.S.H at Art by Cleatress Studios. It was a liberating experience. We discussed our body issues with our audience and shared and learned and healed. It was a great way to end the month.
July looks AS promising so I'll have more updates and more pictures for you. Enjoy until then!
I'm Ellen Gee. When I'm honest, we learn things. When I'm not, we learn things too.
