Off Center presents:
The 10% Market Share: Understanding the INs and OUTs of Queer Marketing
Thursday, March 20, 2003 at 7:30PM
Public invited to attend


NEW YORK, NEW YORK—October 24, 2002—On Thursday, March 20, 2003 at 7:30pm, Off Center will present The 10% Market Share: Understanding the INs and OUTs of Queer Marketing. This moderated forum will attempt to answer some of the many questions the LGBT community has about the politics of queer marketing. As the importance of the LGBT consumer in the marketplace continues to grow, how are we affected by the initiatives set forth by big business in our community? Can we empower ourselves through the consumption of products targeted to our sexual orientation?

Among the panelists participating are: Event Moderator and marketing scholar, Associate Professor Katherine Sender (University of Pennsylvania), Jake Stafford (Witeck-Combs Communication and IBM), Todd Evans (Rivendell Marketing), Dai Min Barclay (Volvo Cars of North America) and Charlene Cothran, publisher of VENUS Magazine.

All are invited to attend The 10% Market Share. This event promises to be an exciting and informative talk with some of the top national advertisers, marketing executives and media sales professionals delving into the current state of LGBT marketing, where it's headed in the near future and the massive impact it has on all of us.

The 10% Market Share: Understanding the INs and OUTs of Queer Marketing will take place at the LGBT Community Center located at 208 West 13th Street in New York at 7:30pm. The suggested donation at the door is $5.

Founded in 2002, Off Center is the LGBT Community Center's newest cultural program. It focuses on provocative issues currently affecting the LGBT community globally, nationally and in New York. Off Center seeks to provide forums to discuss a variety of ideas, opinions and experiences that explore the ever-expanding notion of what being LBGT means today
