Business Manager at the San Francisco Bay Times

UPDATED April 30, 2013: From March, 2012 to March, 2013, I was the business manager at the biweekly LGBTQ newspaper  Bay Times, whose emphasis is on articles about the LGBTQ community written by LGBTQ people living in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

In April, 2012, I used an iPhone to take this photograph, which appears in the newspaper's May 3, 2012 issue.

I captured this moment during a recording of the Bay Times' monthly podcast at Cafe Flore, a very popular cafe in the Castro. Seated are Mark Leno (campaigning to be re-elected as a California State Senator), co-publisher Betty Sullivan, Tom Ammiano (campaigning to be re-elected to the California Assembly) and columnist Manny Apolonio. Standing on the left are musician John Steiner and Gary Virginia (Cafe Flore manager and a Grand Marshal of the 2012 Gay Pride Parade), while co-publisher Jennifer Viegas has her arm around Manny's shoulders.
