Thanks everyone:

Big thanks go out to the organizers and volunteers whose efforts went
into producing our highly-successful 23rd. annual event!

Thanks to well over 100 attendees, without whom DLV would not be

We now begin our follow-up, and this mailing details how you can help
to wrap things up, finish out the current DLV year, and take the first
steps toward DLV 2020.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Please take our Diva Las Vegas 2019 follow-up survey:

While your memories of the event (hopefully all good) are fresh in your
mind, please take a few minutes to give us some very valuable evaluation
and feedback on this year's event.

This year's survey is briefer than those in past years. The section
where each activity is rated for "comfort" has been retired and replaced
with an optional fill-in block for comments on comfort at our
activities, or lack of same.

Please visit this url:


We truly appreciate everyone's attendance, participation, and feedback
on the event as a whole and the individual activities.

The survey should take about five minutes to complete.

Please take the survey only once, but with one exception. If you wish to
add (additional) textual comments in any of the comment spaces, please
re-visit the above URL, skip all of the checkboxes, and enter your new
additional comments, suggestions, etc.

If you attended as a couple or group, please have each person fill out
the survey individually.

If there are any questions or concerns about the survey, please let us

The survey will remain open through the month of April.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Please stand up and be counted:

Thanks to all who have responded to the notices to confirm attendance.

With the structure of our event, it's nearly impossible to get everyone
officially counted, and we want to be sure that everyone who attended is
indeed marked as present.

If your name appears on the list below, you didn't do anything wrong.
We were simply unable to officially check you in during the event.

If you appear on the list below, please reply to this mailing and
confirm whether or not you were indeed in attendance at our 2019 annual

If you missed the event, you don't have to give us a reason, just please
confirm if you were or were not present.

If you are 100% sure that you saw someone on this list present, please
reply to this mailing and say so.

Your cooperation is appreciated.

Call For Photographs:

We are fortunate to have the largest and most complete collection of
photos of any of the major TG events, reflecting all of our first 22

Of course, we wish to continue the tradition for our 2019 event.

We're asking those who attended and took photos to please submit them
for our collection. The Call For Photos is open now and will remain open
through the month of May.
. . . . .

Here are several ways you can submit the photos:

1. Re-visit your Attendee Information Portal. (This is the link that
you received shortly after you registered.) You will now see the
"Upload Photos" option. Click on the button and select the photos on
your computer to upload. With most browsers you can upload multiple
photos in one action.

2. E-mail. Simply attach your photos (any reasonable number to one or
more messages) and e-mail to: dlv@divalas.vegas

You can use a .zip, .tar, etc. file if you like, but it's not necessary.

3. FTP. If you wish to use this method, write in and we'll give you the
login credentials.

4. Snailmail. You can send prints, a CD/DVD, a USB stick, or whatever.
If you want to do this, write in, we'll send you the snailmail address.
. . . . .

As for size of the photos, the bigger the better, of course :) but the
default size coming out of most digital cameras is fine. To be of
meaningful size, they should be 500 pixels on the longer side at

If you don't know anything about pixels and .tar and .zip, don't worry,
just send them in! :)

Photos taken with a phone are fine as long as they are clear and crisp
and of the minimum size above.

As for quality and adjustments, we have automated batches that normalize
size, brightness, and contrast.

Most photos taken with a reasonable quality digital or film camera or
smart phone present very well. If sending in prints, plain ordinary drug
store mini-lab prints scan and present quite well.
. . . . .

Please read this section very carefully:

Prior to placing the photos on line for the public to see, we allow
those who attended to review them. Everyone who attended has a
reasonable number of no-questions-asked "NO WAY" deletions for any
photographs in which they appear.

Those who attended will also be able to recommend photos they like with
a "Like" button, which indicates that they find the photo to be
appealing and recommend it for the final DLV 2019 follow-up pages.

Here's the way all of this works.

As soon as we get the attendance reconciled, everyone who attended will
receive a link to the photo staging area. Those who attended will be
able to review the photos as they come in and, as noted above, mark them
for deletion or recommend them for the final DLV 2019 pages.
. . . . .

Now, as to when the photos will be on line for all to see ...

Here's the planned timing.

We'll keep the Call For Photos open through the month of May. We will
keep the staging area open for review until July 1, after which we will
start composing the final DLV 2019 follow-up pages. Target date for
roll-out of the pages will be in August of 2019, slightly earlier than
in most previous years.

Everyone can help move things along by following up on attendance
confirmations promptly and getting the photos in ASAP.

If there are any questions or concerns on photos, please let us know.

Please rate our vendors:

While your experiences are fresh in mind, please take a few minutes to
rate the various facilities we used for DLV, including your hotel and
the places you may have visited on your own time.

Please take a few minutes to visit our "BIG LIST" here"


Our Big List is our most "hit on" web page, and many who attended
our events first found out about us by hitting our Big List after
searching for TG Friendly merchants and vendors in the LV area.

All of the new venues we used for DLV 2019 should now appear on the
list. If you wish to add any additional vendors, please use the
appropriate link at the above URL.

Also, if you notice any errors on the Big List, such as a facility which
has closed, moved, or has been renamed, please call it to our attention
by leaving a comment under that particular vendor.

Call For Volunteers:

First of all, we wish to thank all who worked on DLV 2019 for their
efforts in producing a very successful and highly-enjoyed event! Without
our many dedicated volunteers, Diva Las Vegas could not happen!
. . . . .

All of those great times you just had were made possible because
somebody stepped forward and made those activities happen!

Planning and organization of DLV is done mostly on line via e-mail. It's
interactive and participatory. Volunteers form what we call the DLVORG

We will be starting up the 2019-2020 volunteer group shortly.

The DLVORG group is not at all closed or exclusive. With very rare
exception, it's open to anybody who expresses interest in helping out
with DLV.

DLVORG people participate at the decision-making level, the organizing
and planning level, and at the nuts-and-bolts level.

All of the activities that happened at DLV 2019 were "adopted" by one or
more of our volunteers, who took the necessary steps to make them

If you want to do your part to make a great thing even better, to give
back what DLV has given to you, and help to run an event that has
literally changed lives, please step forward!

(Those of you who filled out the volunteer form as part of the DLV
follow-up survey do not need to take any more action.)

To volunteer, please do one of the following:

Visit the URL:


Fill out the screen and check a few things, click SUBMIT, and you're on
your way!

Alternatively, simply send a brief e-mail message to dlvorg@divalas.vegas
and state you wish to volunteer. (Or, just reply to this mailing and
state that you wish to volunteer.)

Please include a sentence or two stating how you are most interested in
helping out. Anything general or specific is perfectly fine. Anything
from one sentence to a book length manuscript will be ok. :)

We're not asking for any kind of a major time or effort commitment on
your part. All we ask is that each volunteer organize or assist with
one activity. That's it.

If you're a bit shy, that's fine. We'll find something for you where you
don't have to go cold-calling vendors or anything like that.

And yes, out-of-the-box thinking is encouraged! As you know, we're not
limited to the things that traditionally happen at TG events, and we're
certainly not limited to those which have already happened at DLV.
