Tis the reason for the season for PRIDE!
Tonight's Out Loud highlights our community's pride from a few different angles. We'll go over a long list of area pride events, discuss a queer health survey seeking your input, enjoy some live music and more.
Tonight, we first speak with Alejandro Juarez, from Basic Rights Oregon. He shares exciting news about the recent passage of Oregon Safe Schools legislation.
Next, we talk with Graham and Molly, from the Multnomah County Health Department. They are working on Speak Out 2009, a heath survey focused on the LGBTQ community. The Health Department is seeking a wide range of participants from the LGBTQI community, so they encourage you to share this survey with your personal networks, and invite your frinds & family to participate. Speak Out 2009 is also an event on Facebook.
In studio, we'll enjoy live music from Felina's Arrow. They are playing at the Portland's Pride Festival on Saturday June 13 at 6:00 PM. The Portland Pride Festival is located at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Downtown Portland, Oregon. They're on Facebook too.
With so many events happening In our area over the next few weeks, you can enjoy yourself & our community pride in so many different ways. Just get out there & show your pride! Your family is calling......
