Joe and Babe #72: Phoenix Pride Through The Years

Joe and Babe LIVEBabe is out this week, but Clayton McKee jumps in at the last minute and becomes our guest co-host.  Our guest this week is none other than Linda Hoffman, President of Phoenix Pride from 2001-2008 and widely credited with saving the organization after “The Storm”.  What’s her story, how did she get involved in Pride in the first place?

Well, we’ve got all that and more for you.  Linda’s been involved in our community ever since she moved here in the 1980s.  From AGRA to Pride to, well, she’s still involved with Pride these days…she played great roles in local community organizations.  She tells the story of how the local community ‘woke up’ after we almost lost Pride in 2001 and it started the transition to Phoenix Pride being the organization that it is today.  And ultimately, producing much higher caliber events and being a ‘force to be reckoned with’ in the community.

Speaking of Pride, don’t forget to look for Joe and Babe in the Phoenix Pride Parade on April 21, we’ll be broadcasting LIVE parade commentary from our ‘mobile studio’ starting at 10:30am at  And that’s not all!  Stop by our booth at the festival and enter to win a Lytro camera!  Plus, look for the ‘red hot’ Lytro camera with the Pride photo team and get your picture taken to be part of the 2012 Pride in Living Pictures Photowalk!  We here at QTalk are doing big things this year, so come be a part of it and we’ll luv you forever!
