Crying-Brandon Scott Kurtz
For all my friends in Los Angeles and surrounding area, check out some of these events happening right in our own back yard.

Artist reception for Brandon Scott Kurtz will be happening at Alexander's for Hair, January 27th 7:30PM-11:30PM. Also showing will be my good friend Diana Corpus and her AMAZING jewelry line.

Brandon Scott Kurtz has been a photographer for 17 years. He has traveled across the United States and through Europe, capturing various images with his unique eye. He has experimented with prolonged exposures, polarization, and wide angle lenses. This show highlights some of his favorite images from the past 10 years.

Diana Corpus is an independent designer originally from San Diego. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream as a jewelry designer. Her jewelry line debuted at an underground fashion show called “Sugar Art and Fashion Show” this past August. Her inspiration comes from street fashion, nature, and bygone eras.

Come out have some fun, and hey free drinks, hair service and product giveaways/raffle; what gay man wouldn't love that? There is no cover and part of the proceeds will go to The Burbank International Film Festival. Address for the event:
