For one weekend, Aug 13 to 15, New York’s Fire Island is set to see an influx of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgender (LBGT) people of color gathering to celebrate as a community.

In its eight year, the organizers of Fire Island Black Out (FIBO) are hosting this annual event in the Cherry Grove section of Fire Island. The weekend begins with a cocktail reception on Friday evening at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ronkonkoma, on Saturday, a Day at the Beach with a variety of events, and on Sunday, and a Day of Relaxation, which culminates with a sunset party thanking all those who participated, volunteered, and contributed to FIBO’s success.
