In support of Pride month, we’re sharing two fantastic LGBTQ guidebooks aimed to help LGBTQ students and allies.

The first provides extensive information about organizations and resources leading the way and encouraging the LGBTQ community by creating a more diverse environment. I particularly like how it helps them find a supportive campus which provides a safe space for LGBTQ students and thereby enriches their education. Please see it here:

Creating a Welcoming Campus and Community: https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/lgbtq-college-student-guide/

The second guide, College Scholarships for LGTBQ Students, is designed to help students look for financial aid and scholarship opportunities. There’s a section dedicated to those who have not come out yet and questions they may have about LGBTQ scholarships.

You can see it here: https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/lgbtq-scholarships-financial-aid/

We are sharing a message from our queer and trans Muslims friends in the Twin Cities.

Ramadan Kareem! Ramadan is a very communal time of the year and for some of us who don’t have our families around and/or live far away from home and our loved ones, we feel quite lonely around this time. To create a loving and welcoming community space for queer, trans and Muslim identifying Muslims, we have initiated the Inclusive Mosque here in Minneapolis. We will be starting our Inclusive Mosque gatherings for queer, trans and women identifying Muslims starting tomorrow Wednesday May 16th at 8pm (first day of Ramadan) in Minneapolis. The iftar and prayer gatherings will take place every week Tuesdays and Fridays at the same place. Please email us at mncaravanoflove@gmail.com to know more about this initiative and the location.

You can also look us up on social media: MN Caravan of Love. Please note that this is an initiative by Muslims for Muslims. It would be a kind favor if you pass this news to your queer, trans and women identifying Muslim friends.

Deaf, DeafBlind, Hard of Hearing Community Liaison and Interpreter Coordinator

Hello, Welcome to Twin Cities Pride 2018.

Hello! Welcome to Twin Cities Pride. My name is Jessalyn Akerman-Frank. My sign name is middle finger and thumbs, (8) in circular movements. I have been a volunteer for TC Pride for over 10 years.

I love it! My name is Joy Hahn. This is my first year volunteering with Twin Cities Pride. I am working with Jessalyn to coordinate the ASL interpreters.

Lucky me! We have some news to share about Twin Cities Pride. We talked with Community members about the different stages and ASL Interpreters. We learned that ASL Interpreters at every stage is not needed. We will have ASL Interpreters at Loring and Stonewall stage. If you want to attend other stages (P2P or Rainbow), and you want to see a specific show. That is fine. Make an ASL request.

This year on Saturday and Sunday, we will cover two stages. Loring Stage and Stonewall Stage. In addition, there will be many booths that have hired their own ASL Interpreters. If there is a booth you would like to visit or learn from, and there is no ASL Interpreter, contact us.

On Saturday, ASL Interpreters are scheduled for both stages (Loring/Stonewall)

On Sunday morning, there will be a parade and ASL Interpreters will be scheduled at the main stage. The interpreters will take care of interpreting the announcer’s comments and the parade line-up. There will be interpreters there all morning. Then interpreters will be scheduled from 12-6 (Loring/Stonewall).

An amazing addition this year is that we will be a participant in the parade! Deaf, DeafBlind, Hard of Hearing, Allies and supporters will have the opportunity to march with us.

If you are interested, JOIN US. It is going to be so fun. Right? Yes, for sure. We are still looking for a few more ASL Interpreters. We need about 4 more. We need people who are willing to do music. If you are willing, contact us. We are looking for Deaf performers or Interpreters who may be interested and want to do stage work. If you are interested, contact us. Thank you!

Our contact information and email will be listed on the last slide. We will both be working all day Saturday and Sunday. You can reach us any time. You will see us there. Thank you for watching. We are excited and looking forward to seeing all of you at the Wonderful event hosted by Twin Cities Pride. Thank you, Joy for joining our team.

Thank you.

Jessalyn Akerman-Frank and Joy Hahn email: tcprideinterpreters2018@gmail.com
