Honolulu Pride’s theme for 2020 is “Shaka and Shine”– a great way to virtually share LGBTQ+ love and pride, while respecting and protecting our friends, families and community.

In honor of Honolulu Pride Month, the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation will present a special half hour program “Aloha With Pride: Shaka and Shine”. This program will be produced by Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation and Lei, and will share the history of LGBTQ+ culture in Hawaii, profile amazing members of the community who are making an impact in Hawaii and communicate to viewers what
“Aloha, With Pride” means.

This inspiring and fun local program will be hosted by Matt Guevera and Francine Beppu, with various performances and the World Premiere of Shaka and Shine, an original song produced by Honolulu Pride and performed by Keilana.

This special program will be broadcast on KHON2 on October 15th at 7:00 pm, KHII on October 16th at 8:00 pm, KHII on October 17th at 6:30 pm, and KHON2 on October 18th at 7:00 pm. The program will also be live-streamed on KHON2.com, KHON’s Facebook, and KHON’s You Tube.

And on October 17, the Honolulu Pride Virtual After Party will live stream on our website and social media channels. Hosted by Candi Shell and DJ My Friend George, it will feature, video contributions from the community, music and performances, plus a parade of Tiny Floats.

We are also developing an online Community Panel Discussion to address recent community challenges and resources to help overcome them. Our goal is to create a safe environment for this discussion so that hopefully more people will find the support that they need. If you have ideas about topics or panelists, please email info@hawaiilgbtlegacy.com

The Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation has also made a special donation of $2,000 each to four organizations providing critical help to the people of Hawaii during the COVID-19 pandemic:  Aloha Harvest, Gregory House Programs, Hawaii Health & Harm Reduction Center and Hawaii Foodbank.

Consider showing your Pride during this time of social distancing by making a donation to a charity that’s making a difference in our communities. Together, we can support one another today, and build a better tomorrow.

More details are coming soon, so check back often and visit us on social @honolulupride.
