Chicago's Gay Pride Parade 2016 is one for the books, but not before Asians & Friends Chicago had its golden moment. Kevin Vong, and AFC member and fashion designer got us all rolling with the theme of gold--and we went for it, from stunning gowns to a winged phoenix to scalloped armor. It was one of our best entries yet. Thanks to all and to Val Z. for taking these great photos. More on the website!
This could be as good as it gets. While I was technically up for only one award, I was really up for two at this year's business editor and designer awards called the Jesse Neal's. I was up for my writing of a profile on a convenience store operator and my article called "Hack Proof" on fighting cybercrime was up for a design award. I lost the writing award but our designers won the design award. Here's photos from the ceremony last Friday in New York City. Congrats to all.
