Tonight we welcome Joe LeBlanc and Sasha Buchert from Basic Rights Oregon's Trans Justice Workgroup. We discuss the work of this group, including the recent victory with the City of Portland providing access to comprehensive health care for transgendered employees. Everyone is welcome at the celebration party happening this Thursday, beginning at 6pm at City Hall, located at 1221 SW 4 Ave in downtown Portland.
We take a music break with "The Ones", who were part of the 2010 Not Enough Festival.
Next we welcome organizers and artists from the Not Enough Festival. Edgar, Shanea and Jen are working behind the scenes to put together this year's festival. They brought testimonials from last year's festival to share with listeners. We also heard from Dexter Flowers, representing artists from last year, and Kaj-anne Pepper, representing an artist from the upcoming festival. Kaj-anne is a very busy artist, and invited everyone to a sneak peak of their Not Enough performance this Friday Sept 9th at Bent, happening at the Foggy Notion. Kaj-anne is also involved with the GenderFantasy event happening in early December at The Headwaters.
The Festival is kicking off with a party Friday night, as part of their collaboration with The Big GAY Warehouse Memorial Service! We hear from Alix, organizer of the original big Gay Warehouse in San Fran. Tickets to this event are being sold separately here.
Thanks to all of the artists, volunteers and others working to create the Not Enough Festival. We look forward to enjoying creations by queer artists for the queer community and our allies. Art saves lives, so keep up the great work!
