Pride Connection for June 9, 2020 – Pride Connection Presents: A Candid & Open Conversation Around Pride & Solidarity

Dear ACB Family.

Please join BPI on Pride Connection on ACB Radio Mainstream as we continue with our special programing for Pride Month.

Co-hosts Anthony Corona, Leah Gardner, and Gabriel Lopez Kafati engage in a candid and open conversation around LGBT Pride.

We share personal experiences; the challenges of coming out; reactions of loved ones. We compare also compare notes on the specific challenges of the intersectionality of being a blind or visually impaired member of the LGBT community. How do you connect with the LGBT community being blind? How do you connect with the blind community being an LGBT person? All these aspects and many more are part of our conversation.

We address the concept of Pride in the mist of the racial injustice surrounding our nation. We discuss what it means to be a part of a community that has been historically discriminated against. We have a powerful illustration of solidarity expressed through the extraordinary poetic gift of our very own, Leah Gardner.

Please tune in tonight at 10:00 PM; or during any of our replays this week- Wednesday at 10:00 AM and Sunday at 7:00 AM and 7:00 PM; on ACB Radio Mainstream.

As always, we welcome your ideas and feedback. You can reach Pride Connection at:
