BiNet USA Meets Milla, Michelle, Evan and Margaret

On Saturday May 10th, 2014, BiNet USA was pleased to attend the LA Gay and Lesbian Center fundraiser, "An Evening with Women" (#AEWW). BiNet USA had previously provided a bi community issues presentation to the LA Gay and Lesbian Center Board of Directors and were pleased to see many of the celebrity attendees at the fundraiser proudly proclaming their "B" status!

BiNet USA President Faith Cheltenham attended #AEWW with her friend LA Bi Task Force chair Tara Avery. Faith and Tara are thankful for the great conversations they had with everyone that night, not to mention the *very* good time they had meeting Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Evan Rachel Wood, and Margaret Cho.

All the performers were really wonderful with Evan Rachel Wood performing soon to be bisexual classic covers, "Queer" by Garbage and "High and Dry" by Radiohead. Milla Jovovich killed us with her Patti Smith cover of "Dancing Barefoot" and Rumer Willis took us right on to heaven with her rendition of "You Don't Own Me". We've compiled some of our favorite moments from the night as a Youtube playlist, ENJOY!

Special thanks to J.K. for the help with the tickets!
