Welcome to an evening of afrocentric jams...albeit a bit delayed from the laying over of the laying on of jazz hands from the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival tonight. Could not interrupt...disturb the groove.
We'll kick off this adventure of An Evening of Afrotainment with McCoy Tyner channeling John Coltrane into your soul, impressing upon and into us the groove of infinity.
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.
