DC’s Jazz & Justice WPFW-FM is honoring our LGBTQ+ community and supporters with the first ever all day special Pride Month programming. Today from 8am-Midnight, the theme is No Pride for Some of Us, Until Liberation for All of US: 50 Years After Stonewall. The theme is a nod to the courageous spirit of, and a quote from murdered African American Queer Activist Marsha P. Johnson, and of course a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
The day will consist of various voices to include collective members of “The Inside Out LGBT Radio Show” providing perspectives to include a mix of music and public affairs offerings from members of the LGBTQ community and allies. Programming will also utilize a few entries from the Pacifica Radio Archives – including James Baldwin, Audrey Lorde, Harvey Milk, and a special on Stonewall.
Thank you for the love and support. Send us good vibes. Please join us and enjoy! Make it a safe and beautiful day and week. Be great. Be courageous. Be Bold. BeDoLove! Love! #WPFW #InsideOutRadioLGBTRadioShow #BeDoLove #FindYourZen #BirthAndLiveYourSoulFULLPurpose #JuicySweetSpot #WomenWhoColorOutsideTheLines #Stonewall
