As heard on Morning Line: Pridefest turns 40!

Between the Rainbow Run, Drag Queen Bingo, or the Equality Parade and Pride Festival Saturday on the Park Strip, this week's Pridefest is one of the biggest in history for Anchorage - and with good reason, as the inclusive event is marking its 40th year.  

As spokesperson Shelby Wilson points out, the event wasn't always as celebratory as it is today, "People used to march with bags on their heads, because while they wanted to represent themselves, they also didn't want to lose their jobs or homes."

What do educators, cyclists and flowers have in common?  This weekend, quite a lot!

Alaska Botanical Garden Executive Director Robin Dublin says Bicycle/Educator Appreciation day is a great way to get to know the Botanical Garden.  

Sometimes people need a reminder that it is there, even if they've seen it in the past, Dublin says the Garden is the best kept secret in Anchorage. "The Garden has been around for 25 years, from a community effort and in the last 15 has grown and expanded to include professional horticulturalists and landscape architecture."

KNBA's Morning Line crew got a chance to catch up with Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Don today, about an event tonight at the Alaska Native Heritage Center.  Don says he had a chance to solicit Alaska Native Veteran input at the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention last year, and tonight's event is a continuation of the process.  

The Memorial will be located in the heart of Washington, D.C., at the National Mall.

Alaska Pacific University has long been a respected Alaskan higher education institution, founded in Anchorage in 1958 as Alaska Methodist University, with groundbreaking dedication June 29, one day before the US Senate voted for Alaska Statehood. 

A newer Alaska Native Executive Leadership program is also offered, and perhaps foreshadows the direction APU is embarking on - emerging as a tribal college in a cooperative effort with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.  

Spearheading the effort is Dr. Bob Onders, MD., MPA., JD.

Rain or shine, each summer, usually the second Saturday in June, June 10th, the community of Mountain View hosts a street fair - and the last few have been tied to World Refugee Day, which happens June 20th this year.  

Representative Garen Tarr, spoke with the Morning Line crew about this year's Fair.  This year's performances include Nepali, Congolese, Sudanese and Iraqi traditional songs and dances, as well as Kill Bill Saxophone on stage.

As summer gets into full swing, summer camps are helping youth stay active and involved now that school is out.  KNBA is involved in helping a middle school camp, the CITC Theatrical Music Video Camp, touch on voicework and using microphones for Public Service Announcements. 

Cook Inlet Tribal Council's Schoolyard program Counselor Kimberly Smith says although CITC's summer camps have filled up already, the Schoolyard After-School Program has availability this fall - which is aimed at Alaska Native and American Indian high school-age students in the Anchorage area.
