Join LAWTF at PRIDE! with the City of West Hollywood!

On Saturday, June 15, 2013 at 2pm As part of LAWTF's Pride Month programming with the City of West Hollywood,, LAWTF will host the program PRIDE! at the Kings Road Park located at 1000 Kings Road, West Hollywood, CA 90069. 
Nestled by the backdrop of trees, plants, and a fountain waterfall, LAWTF will present performers inside the multipurpose room at Kings Road Park. Performers will give creative voice to the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) community. 

June is also the month of the Annual "Juneteenth" Celebration, an African American tribute that honors June 19, 1865, the date the last slaves in the Union were informed of the Emancipation Proclamation. This took place in Texas, the last state that informed slaves of their freedom two and a half years later. In honor of Juneteenth, LAWTF will also include performers who speak to human rights, civil rights, and voting rights.

Performer Vanessa Harris-Adams (A Simple Act of Courage), actor/vocalist Mzuri Moyo (The Fannie Lou Hamer Story), R. Sky Palkowitz (Calling America: Don't Hang Up!!), and poet Yazmin Watkins (Love Without Limits: The Bi-Laws of Love).

Confirmed performers include performer Vanessa Harris-Adams (A Simple Act of Courage, Rosa Parks), actor/ vocalist Mzuri Moyo (The Fannie Lou Hamer Story), performance artist R. Sky Palkowitz (Calling America: Don't Hang Up!!), and poet Yazmin Watkins (Love Without Limits: The Bi-Laws of Love). Stay tuned for more on this program as we get closer.
