ZOOM & Fruits in Suits

The COVID-19 pandemic brought our events to a hard stop, like many other areas of the community. In May the SGLBA took an approach like most of us had done at work and in our families to move Fruits in Suits to a ZOOM meeting.

In 1981 as a group of gay men met for the first meeting of what was then, the Gay Business Association no one could have imagined that 39 years later Fruits in Suits would be hosted from one location and broadcast to hundreds over the internet. 

The evening kicked off at 6:00 pm and concluded at 7:00 pm. President Katherine Maver welcomed members and guests and then the program kicked off.
