2018 Festival Preview with Board Chair Darcie Baumann (TCP103)

Twin Cities Pride Board Chair Darcie Baumann sits down with Ryan for a special extended interview to talk candidly about the issues and controversies that have surrounded the Festival and Parade over the past two years. We talk about what went wrong, what’s been done to correct it and what’s being done this year and beyond to ensure that the Festival continues to be a safe and inclusive space for everyone.

We dig past the headlines, soundbites, reactions and misinformation of the past two years. We get to the heart of the matter and speak directly to the LGBTQ+ community about who Twin Cities Pride really is and why we need your help to keep getting better.

We talk about Darcie’s 10-year rise through the organization from volunteer to Board Chair, we answer all of your questions about Police involvement with the Festival and Parade, we respond directly to the demands raised by last year’s protesters and much, much more.

This is an historic, unprecedented, in-depth, one-on-one conversation with the first female, first Person of Color Board Chair of Twin Cities Pride that you won’t hear anywhere else. Clear your schedule for the next hour and a half.
