Local-FM Celebrates Pride Week 2016!

Today kicks off Saint John Pride’s “Pride Week 2016” and Local-FM couldn’t be more excited! To celebrate, we are having a few special Pride related radio specials!

KWIR radio host Stephanie Tierney will be doing some special programming later in the week plus some of our regular programmers are likely to include some LGBTQ+ artists on their individual programs throughout the week as well! Stephanie is also curating a special temporary Pride Week LGBTQ+ “mini-library” of music for our volunteers to treat our listeners to!

On Wednesday, August 3rd from 10:00 am – 11:00 am, Stephanie will be joined by Gloria Dawn Halvorsen of the local SJ UBU Transgender Support Group to chat about the Trans Education Panel that is happening later that same day. On Thursday, August 4th from 10:00 am – 11:00 am, SJ Pride President Michael Cummings will join Stephanie to talk about some of the amazing events happening during Pride 2016, and maybe some special guests!? On Friday, August 5th from 10:00 am – 11:00 am Stephanie will have more guests (TBD) plus great music from Canadian LGBTQ+ musicians! TUNE IN!!

Plus! If all that wasn’t exciting enough, on Saturday, August 6th, Local-FM will be one of the many amazing community organizations marching in the Pride Parade to show our support of our local LGBTQ+ community as well! For a full list of events see the calendar below!
