The Gay & Lesbian Business Exchange group of the Greater For Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce held their annual Artopia Event on Sept. 24, 2016. The event was a success raising $9,000 for the new initiative “Our Night Out” which is organized by the Stonewall National Museum & Archives, Island City Stage, and the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida. This new initiative is organized by these three groups to help promote gay arts and culture. The money served as matching funds for a Knight Foundation Grant.
