Voices from Pride

June is Pride month, and tonight's show features voices from local pride celebrations. First, we hear from Nathan Jimenez's interview with Kristine W, one of the performers from Portland's Pride celebration. Nathan also interviewed Kasey Hansen, an out lesbian and the chairwoman for the Multnomah County Democratic Party.

Enjoy a short music break with PSA from Julie Schurr. Julie is touring through Portland on July 29 and she'll be playing locally with Annie Vergnetti. We'll hear more from these two talented musicians closer to their local gig.

After Julie's PSA song, we shared some resources for STD testing. With June being Pride season, for many folks it is also casual sex & hook-up season. We encourage everyone to put something between you and an infection, preferably latex.

We focus next on the Dyke March. Many folks shared what the dyke march means to them.

This Way Out wraps up our hour of queer culture radio. While we love This Way Out, we'd really love to cover more local events, stories and feature more local talent. Everyone on Out Loud is a volunteer, and KBOO offers tons of free training. No previous radio or media making experience is needed. You too could make queer radio! Check out how to volunteer and get involved. It takes a community to make community radio, and we recruit!

Thanks for listening! Until next time, stay proud and live out loud!
