Votes are In… “VICUÑA” Elected for Best Election Party

Influenced by the evolving political landscape, VICUÑA is one funny satire focusing on a brash presidential candidate on the rise who just happens to be a blustering real estate tycoon and reality TV star, and his world-renowned tailor he coerces into serving him. “Vicuña” delves beneath the over stitching, through the weave and into the true power of the power suit. A suit may or may not make the man but it can definitely be revealing. A timely take on our rollicking political scene from Pulitzer finalist Baitz.

Yup, you guessed it. It's me Keri Freeman, publisher and concept designer for Downtown Weekly. As an African American Indian and middle aged female who lives, works and plays in Downtown Los Angeles for the better of 25 years, it gives me great pleasure to be able to tell our story in such a unique way and offer support for literary artists and educated journalists who inspire me every day to keep writing although I think I suck at it. Also, it would seem I'm the only woman of color to publish a newspaper here in over 100 years, so hopefully that inspires some future generations as well....Just remember if its fun...it can't be work....Thank you, people of Gaia, for your continued support and thank you for reading!
