At the very 1st public organizational meet for St. Pete Pride. It was held in the leather bar section of the club Grand Central Station. Mark was bartending there at the time. The room was packed with 50+ people. Brian Longstreth called the meeting to order. He started to introduce the purposed board. When he announced the treasurer, people actually stood up and starting yelling loudly *#!@#% … this person did not become treasurer that night. This year we are celebrating year 15. Maybe it was a good thing that people objected so loudly at that 1st meeting.
