Election results put LGBT advocates back on defense

Baldwin says chances
‘slim’ for ENDA in
new Congress

In the wake of the seismic

change brought about by Elec-
tion Day results on Tuesday, sup-
porters of LGBT rights are making
new plans to advance their agen-
da in Congress as many signature
bills now seem out of reach.
On Tuesday, the Republi-
cans swept back into power by
winning a majority of seats in
the U.S. House and by shrink-
ing the Democratic majority in
the Senate.
CNN on Wednesday pro-
jected the GOP will take con-
trol of the U.S. House in the
112th Congress by winning at
least 60 seats in the election
— far more than the 39 seats
the party needed to take con-
trol of the chamber.

KALETRA is a prescription anti-HIV-1 medicine called a protease inhibitor that contains lopinavir and
ritonavir. KALETRA is used with other anti-HIV-1 medicines to increase the chance of treatment response
in people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) infection. It is not known if KALETRA is safe and
effective in children under 14 days old.

KALETRA does not cure HIV-1 infection or AIDS and does not stop you from passing HIV-1 to others.
You may still get opportunistic infections or other conditions that happen with HIV-1.

KALETRA Safety Considerations

Do not take KALETRA if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, including lopinavir or ritonavir. Do not take
KALETRA with certain medicines, as they can cause serious problems, death, or make KALETRA less effective
against HIV. Some patients taking KALETRA can develop inflammation of the pancreas and liver problems,
which can cause death. Patients may develop changes in heart rhythm, large increases in triglycerides
and cholesterol, diabetes, high blood sugar, changes in body fat, and/or increased bleeding in people with
hemophilia. Some patients may develop signs and symptoms of serious infections they already have after
starting anti-HIV medicines. Please see Brief Summary for more details.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.
Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088 (1-800-332-1088).

If you cannot afford your medication, contact: www.pparx.org or call the toll-free
number (1-888-4PPA-NOW) or (1-888-477-2669) for assistance.

Gay-themed ‘Ladies’ screened tonight

“Leading Ladies,” a film about a ballroom dancing family, will have its D.C. pre-
miere tonight at 7 p.m. at the AMC Hoffman Theatre (206 Swamp Fox Rd.) in Alex-
andria as part of the fourth annual Alexandria Film Festival.
The film follows the Campari family. Sheri is the larger-than-life, overbearing
stage mom who was once a young and beautiful ballroom champion and now
lives vicariously through her youngest daughter Tasi. Sheri’s oldest daughter, Toni

is Tasi’s practice partner. The only consistent man in the life of the Campari women
is Tasi’s partner Cedric.
This film has a number of LGBT angles. Tasi’s dance partner, Cedric, played by
Benji Schwimmer, is gay. Toni, played by Laurel Vail, has her first romantic experi-
ence with Mona and later becomes her dance parter.
The film will be followed by a party at Yves Bistro (235 Swamp Fox Rd.), just
steps from the theater. Schwimmer and actresses Melanie LaPatin and Vail will give

a live ballroom dancing demonstration.
Tickets are $9.01. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit alexandri-

Art auction to benefit Whitman-Walker

The 17th annual Art for Life art auction will be held Nov. 12 at the Carnegie Insti-
tute of Washington (1530 P St., N.W.) at 6 p.m.

The auction and cocktail reception will benefit Whitman-Walker Clinic’s HIV/
AIDS prevention services for communities of color.
“Art for Life brings a message of hope to communities that are being devastated by
HIV/AIDS in D.C.,” Don Blanchon, Whitman-Walker Clinic’s executive director, said in a
press release for the event. “We must remember that communities of color are bearing
the brunt of the epidemic. The funds raised by Art for Life will help us reach these com-
munities with the message, the tools and the power to protect themselves.”
Dr. Shannon Hader, former director of D.C.’s HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, STD and TB
Administration, will receive the clinic’s Community Service Award for her contribu-

tions to the HIV/AIDS fight in D.C. Three longtime contributing artists will also be
recognized as Art for Life Honorees.
“I have been a friend and supporter of Whitman-Walker Clinic for many years,” Re-
nato Salazar, one of the Art for Life Honorees, said in a press release. “When I came
to the United States ... Whitman-Walker was there when I needed health care ser-
vices and could not afford health insurance. Donating ... is my way of giving back.”
More than 60 international artists have donated works ranging from paintings to
photography to sculptures for the auction.
Tickets for the event, a preview exhibit of the art and absentee bid forms for
those unable to attend are available at wwc.org/artforlife.

Evening of Live Music, Fine Cuisine and Community Celebration,” Nov. 13 from

Mixology celebrates one

Gay, lesbian dating service
known for personal touch

This week, Mixology is ringing in the

New Year. Yes, Kim Rosenberg and
Meghann Novinskie celebrate their first
year as “D.C.’s premier matchmaking
service for gays and lesbians.” We spoke
to Rosenberg, Mixology’s president, who
explains the measure of their success is
their client’s success.
“Success for us can be defined in
many ways. For some, it’s exchanging
phone numbers. For others, it’s an en-
gagement or moving in together. We’ve
seen it all, and are excited to continue to
support our clients in their goals.”
