Photos of the 2008 AfterEllen.com NYC Meet-Up

Last Sunday a bunch of AfterEllen.com vloggers and staff along with the women of 3Way attended a NYC meet-and-greet with some of you. We were expecting a a few dozen people, and got a around 200 instead! It was crazy! But in a good way (mostly). It was great to meet everyone and see some of the faces behind the usernames.

Below are some photos from the event — about half are from our new NYC photographer Saidi Granados, and the others from readers and our own cameras (thanks to the readers who sent them in!). Enjoy!

Note: Jenn, Cathy Shim and Maile Flanagan couldn’t attend at the last minute due to schedule conflicts.

Bridget McManus, Jill Bennett, and Dee
(Dee has no last name, just a first one — like Cher)

Bridget and Kate McKinnon with Chireese
(I’m sure I spelled her name wrong, but she’s the woman who
loves Love and Basketball as much as I do!)

Karman Kregloe with AE reader (and video editor extraordinare) Charlie

(who won an Oscar in 2006 for her makeup work on
the first Chronicles of Narnia movie — how cool is that?)

Dara and Karman, surely up to no good
