New Valentine's Day Event Brings Diverse Communities Together to Celebrate Love and Inclusion
because love has no bounds and traditional Valentine's Day celebrations are dying. They're no longer fun and are ineffective at promoting love and togetherness.

"The old methods of going out and celebrating Valentine's Day are tired and broken." According to the founder of the Uprising Empire and a local artist himself, Michael Clark, known by his stage name Blak Vader. "Millennials date differently."
He believes the out-dated ways of celebrating Valentine's Day–dinner and a movie, or dinner and listening to mainstream music–are bygone practices. He asks, "Who wants to sit passively, stare endlessly into a lover's face and listen to mainstream music?" Absolutely no one, he answers. That's boring.
According to Clark, Millennials are social beings, whether by nature or nurture. They have boundless enthusiasm for love and life and are far more active than their parents ever were. They don't want to be just entertained;
Local artists performing at a Modern-Day Love Affair hail from places as far away as West Hazelton to YouTube. Instagram personalities from Nanticoke will appear. Featured artists include Blak Vader, DJ Platinum, the group RiseNGrind, A Modern-Day Romance's Dezypher and female hip-hop artist Henna.
According to fans of the Uprising Empire's previous events, A Modern-Day Love Affair will be a movie – to NonMillennials a movie is slang for a good time.
