Shortly after, Al’s hobby of photography led to an additional career in taking club and event photos for the local LGBT magazines. While Al worked his way up the ladder from plant engineer to emergency planning. Even after retiring, Al was called back to service and was a vital part of the Hurricane Sandy recovery effort. Though the L.I. magazines have come and gone, Al can still be seen at almost every Long Island LGBT event snapping away and generously donating his time and photos.

The Director's Award


The Director’s Award – awarded to those unsung persons who have become synonymous with the LIGLFF through their continual dedication to the festival.

Mac Speights and Bob Titus


Bob Titus, retired Assistant Director at Planting Fields Arboretum, met Mac Speights in 1989 and the two were fast friends, lovers, and finally husbands over a wonderful 23 years. They fought, in their own way for the GLBT community, including trips to Albany and Washington, interviews with Newsday, and helping to start SAGE Long Island. Mac and Bob believe(d) films are entertainment but also motivators, changing and moving us toward pushing the envelopes of life. This is why Mac will continue to support the LIGLFF. Sadly, Bob Titus passed away this year.
