June is typically Pride Month, but our pride won't be contained to one month alone. Our queer community is so awesome, we have three different pride events! Tonight we focus on Latino Gay Pride and we welcome organizers of this festival, including David Martinez, Vanessa La Torre, and Alejandro Juarez. Joaquin Lopez and Nurys Herrera perform live music during the show too.
The show started with Khalil Edwards joining us by phone to discuss the work of Portland PFLAG, the different chapters of PFLAG, and their upcoming fundraiser.
While listening to an internet radio station, I was struck by a song that was being sung by Sally Dworsky. It was sentimental song accompanied by piano, and it intrigued me: how had a percussive instrument like the piano found a niche in such expressive music? I decided to try and build a show around the piano, and here is the result. Hope you enjoy it!
