Cameron toured the country in the musicals Footloose, Fame, Tommy and State Fair. On the 12th and 19th, he will present his solo performance piece with music, Different is Good, which charts his Mormon upbringing in Utah, and follows him through his arrival in New York City as a working actor.

Marti Gould Cummings moved to NYC at the age of 17 to study musical theatre. During his time as an actor, he toured nationally, was featured on several hit TV shows, and appeared in the Drama Desk nominated musical TWIST off-Broadway. As time went on he realized he was put on this earth to make a difference for the LGBT community.

Since forming BSO! with Anthony Hollock, Marti has become one of NYCs most influential gay rights activist. He has appeared on LOGO, been featured in top gay and Broadway publications, and presented album of the year at the OUTMusic Awards. Through the red carpet interviews,
sit down interviews, weekly talk show, and benefits he hosts, he truly has given a voice to the younger generation in the LGBT community. Marti will continue to fight for equality until all people have gained equal rights under the law.

ANYTHING GOES with Marti will take place on Sunday January 16th at 9pm at Vig27 located at East 27th Street and Park Avenue South. This event is free and open to the public with half off drinks. Vig27 will donate a portion of the bar to BC/EFA.
