LGBTQ Virtual Winter Party (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, February 16, 2021

This week I talked with Kierra Johnson the new Executive Director of the National LGBTQ Task Force about their upcoming virtual Winter Party Festival & what she would you like to see happen for our LGBTQ community in the Biden-Harris administration. To begin with The National LGBTQ Task Force has announced that the 2021 Winter Party Festival the org’s largest annual fundraising event will be held virtually from March 4th through March 6th, 2021. Funds raised from the Festival will support the Task Force’s “All of Me, All the Time” campaign to secure nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ people. The Winter Party Festival will be hosted by Tina Burner a New York-based drag performer & comedian currently appearing on the 13th season of the hit VH1 series RuPaul’s Drag Race. The Festival will also feature a special appearance by Melbourne-based dance-pop diva Zoe Badwi debuting her new song “We Are” a collaboration with DJ Dan Slater who will open this year’s Main Event. Throughout the 3-day festival Burner & other special guests will talk about the Task Force’s “All of Me, All the Time” campaign aimed at persuading people to contact their U.S. Senators & Representatives to pass the Equality Act. Johnson joined the Task Force in 2018 as Deputy Executive Director but was already engaged with the organization previously serving on the National LGBTQ Task Force’s board of directors & its National Action Council. As a bisexual Black woman Johnson becomes one of few out queer-identified women of color at the helm of a national LGBTQ organization. I talked to Kierra about what she hopes to accomplish at The Task Force, their upcoming virtual events & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
