Viva LA ROOTS PRIDE!!!
On behalf of the QTPOC Pittsburgh co-founders, ww thank you for covering the beginning of Roots Pride Pittsburgh's protest of Iggy Azalea! You have been a huge part of affirming that we must take responsibility for creating the environment we wish to see.
Roots Pride is an inclusive celebration. A celebration of our unified joy and struggle. The Stonewall Inn was a rare place in America at the time. It was an integrated community of LGBTQ (mostly GT) people who created a safe space for ALL the members of our community.
Since your article we have raised over $1,300 towards making Roots Pride Pittsburgh a reality. Please see our campaign page to get details about our plan. https://www.gofundme.com/FundRootsPridePgh…
When we look at the facts such as only $15,000 out of an over $800,000 annual budget directed towards local LGBTQ service providers, or $150,000 leaving our community to go to an international anti-advocate, the answer is startlingly clear. A power shift is not only necessary, but non-negotiable.
This is not to say that The Delta Foundation shouldn't cancel Iggy Azalea. They should. Because it is the right thing to do. And they can do that. And they can have their regularly scheduled Exclusive Pride. That's okay. I hope they do. In fact, it is important for them to proceed with business as usual. We need to know who wants an inclusive community and who does not. In this way, we can direct our energies to those who wish to build a community based on love and respect.
Thank you again for your wonderful article. We hope you’ll join us in keeping pride political.
