    This month we introduce you to the Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits community. Bay Area American Indian Two-Spirits (BAAITS) exists to restore and recover the role of Two-Spirit people within the American Indian/First Nations community by creating a forum for the spiritual, cultural and artistic expression of Two-Spirit people.

    BAAITS is a community-based volunteer organization offering culturally relevant activities for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Native Americans, their families and friends. Two-Spirit refers to the commonly shared notion among many Native American tribes that some individuals naturally possessed and manifested both a masculine and feminine spiritual qualities.  American society commonly identifies Two-Spirit People as Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgender.

    Our guest this month is Angel C. Fabian, MD MNA, the executive director of BAAITS.

    On May 18th, choirs from Napa Valley College and Napa High School will team up to perform “Considering Matthew Shepard.” This month, student members from both choruses talk about the oratorio and their experience learning and performing the music. We will also have all the details about how you can get tickets for the May 18th performance.

    “Considering Matthew Shepard is a Grammy-nominated three-part oratorio composed by Craig Hella Johnson. The work is an evocative and compassionate musical response to the murder of Matthew Shepard. On October 6, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, beaten, and left to die, in what became an infamous act of brutality, and one of America’s most notorious anti-gay hate crimes. Shepard’s murder ultimately led to the creation of the Matthew Shepard Foundation and provided a catalyst for legislation that expanded the definition of a hate crime to include sexual orientation. In 2009, Congress passed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Composer Craig Hella Johnson had a profoundly personal reaction to both the murder and its resonance. The Shepard family and Foundation engaged with Johnson in the creation of the work, and allowed the use of fragments from Shepard’s personal diary.”

    This month we continue our look at some of the issues at stake in this year’s election cycle and the upcoming initiative on the November ballot to remove the language in California’s Constitution put there by Proposition 8 back in 2008, defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.  The vote is not a “slam-dunk” and the LGBTQ+ community needs to be aware and involved in this issue. My guests this month include Alex “Lex” Lazar, an activist and long-time marriage equality advocate, and Robert Shine from New Ways Ministry, a gay Catholic organization. We’ll learn more about the Pope’s recent approval of a “blessing” for same-sex relationships.
