Public Affairs - Seattle Pride

posted by Luciana Bosio - 

June is Pride month and iHeartRadio celebrates with Pride Radio – our iHeart original station – the pulse of LGBTQ+ America! Join Pride Radio for our month-long celebration of love, diversity, acceptance and unashamed self-pride! Just open the App and search “pride” and listen commercial free all month! 

Now, while we celebrate Pride month on iHeart Radio, discrimination against LGBTQ+ people is on the rise, and in 31 states it’s still legal to fire, evict, or deny services to LGBTQ+ people. While most Americans support equal treatment, they’re unaware LGBTQ+ people lack these protections. 

And this is why every June we celebrate Pride month, to recognize the amazing progress that has been made on LGBTQ+ rights. But also, to make sure every lesbian gay bisexual and transgender person living in every state in the United States has the same rights as everyone else. We need to make sure we eradicate hate crime and we need to constantly fight for equality. 

To talk about Pride month and the events planned for this month, we recently invited Kevin Toovey, President of Seattle Out & Proud/Seattle Pride and Beth Goldfinger, Director at Large of Seattle Out & Proud/Seattle Pride. Listen to our talk here...
