A weekly public affairs show about McKeesport and the Mon Valley, produced in cooperation with WEDO (810) and WZUM (1550).
Topic: The Black LGBTQ community outside the city of Pittsburgh
Guest: Terrance McGeorge, Project Matters
How Topic Discussed: The death on May 26 of Aaliyah Johnson, a Black trans woman in McKeesport, highlighted the lack of community services for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer — especially people who are Black or Latinx — but do not live within the city of Pittsburgh. What types of outreach are needed? What barriers and challenges to Black LGBTQ people still face? How have their lives improved? Where do barriers to acceptance still exist?
