#MIXTAPE045 – Party with Pride by Astraea
It’s Pride month in NYC! At the Astraea Foundation, it’s a time to celebrate LGBTQI social justice, their many and multiple identities, and the achievements of the communities they work with. One fabulous way they celebrate every year is with their Party with Pride–a staff house party which they invite friends, family, and community to eat together, dance together, and get to know each other. This year, the Party with Pride is on June 16th, and they made a very special Homoground mixtape for the occasion. Curious to hear what the Astraea Staff grooves to when they want to get pumped up for social justice? Have a listen! And join them at Party with Pride! http://www.astraeafoundation.org/news/233/137/Party-with-Pride/d,events
