June is International Pride Month, and to celebrate, the Sitka Pride planning committee has put together a jam packed schedule of community events, including a comedy show, self-defense class, storytelling, a rally and an art show. All events are “pay what you can” and funds will go towards supporting the non-profit, Native Movement, and the Sitka Pride Fund. Organizers Mel Beadle and Lina Kapp join KCAW’s Brooke Schafer to discuss upcoming Sitka Pride festivities. Listen here:
