The STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans Association ("S.V.A.") had to conduct legal action
Meanwhile, the non-Gay RDP Group's expo benefitted from
attendees, advertisers, publicity
In Court, Round 1, the extremely nervous, leg-shaking
defendant, a.k.a. RDP Group owner,
the outrage of visitors, had a disrespectful and gruesome display of 'open' caskets! Hey,
that's real "Gay" and happy expo and so fun -- especially in the Gay age of AIDS! You
can imagine how many Gay people never returned just because of that disrespectul stunt!
NYC Gay Business Expo #17
(Note: No opening ceremonies again this year!)
Saturday, March 20, 2010 -- 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday, March 21, 2010 -- 12 noon to 6 p.m.
The STONEWALL Veterans' Association was attempting to negotiate arrangements for the annual S.V.A. presence at the New York City G.L.B.T. Expo and the classic and famous 1969 convertible known as the "Stonewall Car" to be on display to kick-off year of "Stonewall 41" here in our hometown Manhattan where the SVA-ers started it all!
S.V.A. Executive Committee Decision: A unanimity of the E/C has decided that for various factors -- notably the advertising fees that the RDP Group benefitted from and owes the S.V.A. -- that the S.V.A. will not participate in 2010 at the NYC Gay Biz Expo and, thus, the "Stonewall Car" will not be on display. They could care less! We are providing this notice simply to avoid attendees expecting to meet Stonewall veterans as in years gone by, interviews with SVA-ers or photo ops with the famous "S/W-Car" not to be disappointed. We suggest you follow suit, show Gay unity and do not partake.
