"Dear Carol and Board Members of the Fresh Fruit Festival. I would like to thank you so much for the recent Fruitee Award. I did not expect to receive an award and had came originally to the Two-Spirit Evening to represent our Native community. We (Samantha and I) are very grateful to have an the opportunity to come out and participate.

I really appreciate Robert Urban for taking the time to organize the Two-Spirit Evening, because without his organizing and planning I don't think we would have been apart of it. He was such a great supporter even when we were rushing to start the show. He has remained a very helpful and important contact in New York. We come from a realitively small section of the LGBT community and finding allies so supportive is wonderful. Samantha is a very talented performer, but sometimes she doesn't always realize her potential. It was nice to see her receive this award because it gave such a big boost to her confidence. I feel that this award helped to not only to cheer her up but also gave her confidence a boost. I think shows like the Fresh Fruit Festival gives everyone an opportunity to show the diversity and wonder that each of us have to offer . Thank you again" - Landa Lakes
