The Persecution of LGBTQ+ Individuals in Africa
Africa, a continent renowned for its rich cultural diversity and history, unfortunately, remains a challenging place for many LGBTQ+ individuals. Despite significant progress made globally in recognizing and protecting the rights of sexual and gender minorities, a substantial number of African countries still exhibit deep-rooted prejudices and discriminatory practices against the LGBTQ+ community.

Sad news about volunteer, Michael Danahy
We received some sad news yesterday that longtime WMPG volunteer, Michael Danahy, has passed away while visiting California.
Michael had his hands in many things over the years here at WMPG, most recently working on the live music show – Local Motives. In the past years he worked with our Development Department, helped with events, served on our Board of Advisors and was a morning DJ on the Quilting Bee show. Michael also was a musician and released his own music. He had his own record label.

Spectacular Blues Spectacular at OLS
The WMPG Bluegrass Spectacular returned for a night of, you guessed it, bluegrass. Pejebscot Station kicked it off with their set, followed by Breakin’ Strings with the World Famous Grassholes headlining this event that was filled with great music, a silent auction, big energy, and a sense of community.
JAM – Jazz at the Movies April 29th
In celebration of International Jazz Day, WMPG’s Jazz At the Movies (JAM) will be showing the film “Blue Note Records- Beyond the Notes” on Saturday April 29th at the Portland Conservatory of Music. This movie is about the Blue Note Record label, but it is more about the Blue Note founders and the chemistry between them and the great musicians that recorded on this label. This is truly a case where the musicians made the record label what it became because the owners gave them the freedom to create. It is proof that great things happen when creative people connect through music and freedom of expression.
