This summer TMAN will be doing at least 2 camping trips, and possibly a trip elsewhere. This means it’s time to start saving up and thinking about where you’d like to go. Below are some ideas and some considerations. If you have other comments/suggestions please post them below email@example.com.
There are three big holidays in the summer, Memorial day, July 4th, and Labor day. All of these weekends are good opportunities to go on trips, go camping or set up simple cookouts in Fairmount or Roosevelt park.
- At the Beach LA - Biggest feature is a big party on the beach at the end of the pride celebration. However, LA is spread out and somewhat expensive
- Miami Sizzle - The beach is within driving distance, but this trip is coming up soon so there’s less time to save
- Las Vegas – There aren’t any specific events going on here but Vegas is relatively cheap – 5* condos go for around $100 during the summer since it’s extremely hot. There’s gambling (obviously), and fun things to do until 4 or 5am.
- New Orleans Black Pride This year the theme seems to be “Blame it on the Alcohol”. Anyone else been to New Orleans or have any other insights?

As you may know, we attended the Southern Comfort Conference in Atlanta, GA last year. We turned the conference upside down with our presence! We had a great time together representing TMAN. We hope to attend one major conference, in addition to our own, every year.
This year we plan to attend the Gender Odyssey Conference in Seattle, WA from September 5, 2009 to September 7, 2009 (Memorial Day Weekend). We must act fast to plan this monumental occasion. Scholarships are now available to attend the conference at a very low cost of $25.00 (this will cover costs for meals, workshops and some events). These scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. The scholarship forms are attached. Please complete and email back ASAP if you are interested in going with us.
As of right now, we will most likely be flying out there. If enough of us plan to attend we may be able to find some good group rates. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lonnie for more details. By these events outside of our weekly rap groups, we can only strengthen our bond. So don’t miss out on your chance to join in on the fun and do things that no other group around is doing.
EMAIL the completed application back to the email address provided on the form.
