The second annual “Time to Thrive” conference, designed to equip professionals who interact with young people to better help gay, lesbian and transgender youth, will take place in Portland in February. The conference will present accurate information and proven techniques for helping those young people navigate childhood and young adulthood in a safe, sound and healthy way. We feature the story in today’s LGBTQ News Update:

Saturday was a scorcher, but the music was fantastic at the 13th annual Mississippi Street Fair! Thank you to all the awesome performers who played the Wild Planet Music Stage. It was a stellar line-up that included local favourites Mattachine Social, Activity Universal, Sexbots, Portland Peace Choir & Jeremiah Clark. Many of these performers will be in the WPR studios over the next couple of weeks to get us caught up on their summer touring and latest music offerings. ‘Stay tuned!’
