Biographical:
Most remembered for saying, "Ah one-a, ah two-a, ah-Cheeze-a", Rex Maniscalco was Tampa's GLBT photographer and community documentarian. An Ybor City native, Rex Maniscalco was around to experience and participate in the emergence of a visible LGBT community in the Tampa area. From the early Pride picnics and festivals to the beginnings of Equality Florida, Rex was there, camera in hand, to document the people who have been instrumental in creating LGBT community and culture. Inspired by a traveling exhibition of the history of the LGBT movement, Rex undertook the task of capturing gay history in the making through his camera and video recordings. Moved by the stories of hidden lives told by Bobbie Smith and Kay Thompson, he began the Rainbow in Sunshine Project in January of 2007 to offer a photographic history of gay lives and activism in Tampa, Florida. He was a part of the GLBT & Hillsborough Democratic Executive Community and active in the Hillsborough County GLBTA Democratic caucus. Rex Maniscalco passed away April 4, 2009 at the age of 57.
