The video series about LGBT Catholics in Baltimore, Maryland was screened at the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Members from the LGBT community, the Catholic Church and employees of HRC attended. The films were used as a platform for discussion, action and collaboration.
From Wednesday, June 22 through July 31, 2016, my work focusing on LGBT Catholics in Baltimore, a seven-part video series, will be on exhibit at The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA). The exhibition showcases artwork by the seven finalists competing for the Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize, a $25,000 fellowship given each year to a visual artist living and working in the Greater Baltimore region. The exhibition is held in conjunction with Artscape, America's largest free art festival, and is produced by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts. Below are a few photos detailing my exhibit installation, and here is the official press release.
Recently, I returned from a three-week trip to Vietnam – a journey that covered approximately 1,300 miles throughout the country. Starting in Hanoi, then moving onward to Cat Ba Island, Sapa, Ninh Binh, Hue, Lang Co, Hoi An, My Son, Dalat, Mui Ne and Ho Chi Minh, as well as other small villages en route. It was a fascinating glimpse into everyday life, wondrous landscapes, captivating history and plentiful food…. Ah, the food! Here are some images captured along the way.
On April 25, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration met at the University of Maryland University College to hear pleas from desperate patients, and consider clinical trial data from a Sarepta drug (eteplirsen) that could help those with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
During presentations to the F.D.A., Stacie Al-Chokhachi embraces her son, Dalton, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Stacie and Dalton came from Memphis to participate in the event and show their support.

Curve Magazine is conducting a multi-day campaign to highlight the video series that I created about Saint Matthew Catholic Church and its ministry that is designed to support and affirm its LGBT community. Below is a partial screenshot from Curve's first story featured online.
