Babe is back this week and we’re talking to someone who we know pretty well, but our listeners probably don’t. Gina Read is the Publisher and Editor of ‘N Touch News Magazine. She tells her story of how the magazine came to be, which was part of facing her own fears in life. ’N Touch has now grown up to be a major player in the GLBT publications in Arizona and we are happy to be partnered with them. Gina calls ‘N Touch a very community-driven magazine and that they are always trying to find ways to help out our own community through the magazine and its reach.
We’re also talking about the latest news from around the Valley and around the country, including: DADT repeal being ‘certified’ (finally!), our local election for the next Mayor of Phoenix, Linda Elliott becoming the new 1n10 Executive Director, the upcoming pancake breakfast event at the new One Voice Community Center, Phoenix Pride donates $5k to This is H.O.W. and a whole lot more!

This week, we are reflecting on Pride — in general. Have we strayed too far from the origins of Gay Pride? Should we be educating ourselves along with the massive festivals and parties that represent International Pride Month? This idea was brought up by ‘N Touch News Magazine and we’re adding our voices to it. We want your feedback, chime in and we’ll talk about it on the next show — you know how to get a hold of us!
Plus, we’re introducing our segments on Community Strong: Keeping the Rainbow Alive. This is a new PR campaign created by 1n10 and Phoenix Pride to highlight the various organizations in our community that do great works throughout the year, but sometimes are forgotten by the community at large. This week, we’re highlighting Phoenix Pride and 1n10, two of the eight organizations featured in this first round of Community Strong information campaigns.
Be safe out there this Independence Day Weekend, leave us a voicemail with your thoughts on the show and we’ll talk to you next time!
