This week I get to chat with my friend from ‘up north’, Kathryn ‘Kat’ Jim from Flagstaff Pride! Flagstaff Pride is holding a fundraiser entitled “Shannel” this coming Friday, October 22 at The Green Room in Flagstaff. It’s just one of the several fundraisers a year that the organization holds to keep Pride in the minds of everyone and to raise funds for Pride and its various programs. The event stars Afeelya Bunz and a special guest, starts at 9pm and is only $5!
For more information, visit the Flagstaff Pride website.
Kat also gives us some insight into her own life and coming out process and how she fell in love with Flagstaff and moved there quite quickly! Flagstaff has a great and tight-knit glbt community, but it is not the traditional setup with bars and clubs like the big cities are used to. If you’re thinking of making a move to Flagstaff, this is a great episode to listen to as she delivers great insight into glbt life in the mile-high town.
At the beginning of the show, I give some commentary on the up and down news this week of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” being stopped by an Federal judge’s injunction order, and then being later appealed by the Dept. of Justice. What gives??!! I invite you to chime in on our Facebook page, Twitter and right here on the website. Tell us your feelings and we’ll chat about them on next week’s show!
And of course, don’t forget to stay and listen to our in-depth Events Update segment with J. Seth Anderson. The State Fair opens up this weekend with an awesome concert by the B-52s, and the weather is _slowly_ starting to cool off. Time to get out those walking shoes and go to some Fall festivals! Even Tempe Town Lake is being refilled, so you can head out there for a stroll by the water again!
As always, spread the love about QTalk Arizona and tell your friends to listen. We can’t grow without your help and support!
