2007 is turning out to be such a busy year for PinkMafiaRadio that it has been hard to keep the sight updated. I am looking into bringing on some volunteers to keep the site fresh but there are some special events that I wanted to make sure you all know about.

The Pan African Film and Arts Festival is going on right now in Los Angeles and has some amazing Panels, Films and even a Noah’s Arc Marathon. The Pan African Film and Arts Festival has included GLBT programming for the past 5 years with some great work and this year they continue to include a diverse range of films. So often GLBT are only acknowledged at GLBT festivals, I am so thrilled by the extensive range of GLBT events that are being hosted by this festival. I hope that many of you are able to show your support to the filmmakers and to the festival programmers by coming to as many of these exciting events as you can. Some of the events are posted below but please check out the PAFF site for the full line up.
