Pride is defined as having a great opinion of oneself. Pride is also being happy with who you are. The former can make a person become insensitive to others and their feelings. The latter can be folks who are comfortable in their own skin. June is pride month in many places around the world. As people who transgender, gay, lesbian. bisexual, queer and other gender variant people celebrate their uniqueness, I am reminded that God created each of us in his own image. Each one of us has been created as we are. Each one of us has a story to tell. No one should ever be of the way God made them.
When the Delta Foundation announced their headliner entertainer wass Iggy Azalea, many in the Western PA area were outraged and many LGBTQ persons of color felt especially alienated from Pittsburgh Pride. However, the selection of Azalea was just the last in a long list of incidents which leave many feeling as if the Delta Foundation doesn't care about the local LGBTQ community, but rather organizes Pride for white cis males alone. From the outrage came the organization of Roots Pride Pittsburgh.
My guest for this episode is Joy KMT, one of the co-organizers for the protest against Delta and the organizing effort to form Roots Pride Pittsburgh. We will talk about the Iggy controversy, and how a grassroots oriented Pride will serve Western PA's LGBTQAI com munity.

Join Minister Damian Henry every Monday morning @ 10am eastern standard time for bible study.We'll be focusing on the study of Humility and Pride. In short, true humility requires an accurate understanding of who God is and who we are. Pride, on the other hand, obscures a true knowledge of God. C.S. Lewis said it well: “In God you come up against something which is in every respect immeasurably superior to yourself. Unless you know God as that — and, therefore, know yourself as nothing in comparison — you do not know God at all. As long as you are proud, you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”
This lesson will uplift and encourage you to stay humble before the true and living God, in your daily walk in Christ. Tune in by calling 714-868-0763, or click the link on the facebook/twitter pages.
