Recognizing the 29th Annual D.C. Black Pride HON. ELEANOR HOLMES NORTON OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
May 8, 2019 Ms. NORTON, Madam Speaker, I rise today to ask the House of Representatives to join me in recognizing the 29th annual D.C. Black Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. This Memorial Day week the National Capital Region welcomes members of the African American LGBTQ community to celebrate "Our Truths In Harmony" at the 29th annual D.C. Black Pride. The festivities begin May 20th at 5:00 p.m. with the Damian Ministries’ Black Pride Kick Off Reception and they close at 6:00 p.m. May 27th with Helping Us People Into Living’s “Pride In the Park” festival at Fort DuPont Park. On May 21st, D.C. Black Pride honors its 2019 award winners at the D.C. Black Pride Awards Reception. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President and Chief Executive Derrick Johnson receives the President’s Award. The 2019 Welmore Cook Awards go to Bishop Allyson Nelson Abrams, founder prelate and pastor of Empowerment Liberation Cathedral, her spouse, Bishop Emerita Diana Williams, and Dr. Dii-Quartelai Quartey of the National Association of Retired Persons (NAARP) and the Robert H. Smith School of Business. Steven “Kahos” Wilson, Founder and CEO of Ovah the Top Productions and Executive Director of the OASIS Dance Company, receives the Unsung Hero Award. Black Pride recognizes True Colors United Senior Program Officer Kahlib Barton with the Leadership Award. ShiQueeta Lee, noted DMV Drag Entertainer and costume designer, is honored with the Earline Budd Award. Black Pride acknowledges U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Impact Specialist Derrick
Câoméi “Strawberry” Cox as the Charlotte Smallwood Volunteer of the Year for 2019. Gail Oliver and Nana Amuah-Afenyi VI (born Peggielene Bartles, known informally as “King Peggy”), chief of Tatum Ghana, receive the Curtis L. Etherly, Jr., Ally Award. Michael Beale of Mb Staffing Services, LLC, receives the D.C. Black Pride Small Business Award. This year, Black Pride initiates the Alan Sharpe Award for contributions to art by awarding it to its namesake, Alan Sharpe, Founding Artistic Director of Washington, D.C.'s African-American Collective Theater. Black Pride continues through Memorial Day with town halls, educational workshops, a poetry slam hosted by Mary Bowman, an interfaith worship service, and social events, including breakfasts, brunches, dinners and happy hours. D.C. Black and Lesbian Gay Pride Day began my first year in Congress. On Sunday, May 26, 1991, 800 people gathered at Banneker Field on Georgia Avenue. I have watched it mature from an ad hoc event to one of the world's preeminent Black Pride celebrations. Now D.C. Black Pride draws more than 50,000 participants from the United States, Africa, Europe and the Americas to our nation's capital. D.C. Black Pride fostered the beginning of the Center for Black Equity (formerly known as the International Federation of Black Prides, Inc.) and the “Black Pride Movement,” which now consists of 53 Black Prides on four continents. I commend the volunteer Advisory Board that assists Earl D. Fowlkes, Jr., Jeffrey Richardson, Michael S. Hinson, Jr., C. Hawkins, Kenya Hutton and Genise Chamber-Woods in the planning and execution of D.C. Black Pride. As Black Pride comes to town, I also take this opportunity to inform the celebrants and to remind my colleagues of the various limitations Congress has placed on the District of Columbia. Despite paying more federal taxes than 22 states and paying the highest per capita federal taxes in the United States, the residents of Washington, D.C. still do not have full voting representation in Congress. I ask the House to join me in welcoming all attending the 29th annual D.C. Black Pride celebration.
Our week started on Tuesday, May 21 with the DC Black Pride 2019 Awards Reception at The Park at 14th. This year’s honorees are Allyson N. Abrams, Diana Williams, Nii-Quartelai Quartey, Queen Adesuyzz, Kahlib Barton-Garçon, Steven Wilson, Derrick Johnson, Derrick “Strawberry” Cox, Shi-Queeta-Lee, Michael Beale-Mb Staffing Services, Peggielene Bartels “King Peggy” Gail Oliver and Alan Sharpe. This is just a sample of the 2019 offerings we will have through the Memorial Day weekend. Review the schedule in this guide and download our app (dcblackpride.org/app) for a complete listing of all our activities. As we enter into the spirit of DC Black Pride, the Center for Black Equity must acknowledge the sudden passing last week of Mary Bowman who was the coordinator of the now renamed DC Black Pride Mary Bowman Poetry Slam. While our hearts are heavy with sadness and grief, we are inspired by Mary’s dedication to our community as we continue to fight for LGBTQ equality and celebrate our heritage and culture. Mary is gone, but not forgotten. We welcome you — our sisters and brothers — to our Nation’s Capital and the world’s first Black Queer Pride. Enjoy yourself, have fun and stay safe!

SATURDAY WORKSHOPS 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Building the Tribe: An Intergenerational Dialogue on Building Trusting Communities Presenter: Dr. Ikeranda Smith Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 3 The purpose of this workshop is to illustrate the need for building trusting communities for African Americans who identify as LGBTQIA. Our community has historically been (and continues to be) discriminated against and has very unique needs that warrant a level of sensitivity. Through open dialogue and thoughtful activities, Dr. Ikeranda will discuss how to build solid support systems especially when family of origin is absent. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of the need for healthy dialogue about issues that are important to those who identify as LGBTQIA, strategies on how to build trusting and supportive relationships and an understanding on the self-work necessary to be able to live their best lives.
11 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
Resume Writing & Interviewing Facilitators: Booz Allen LGBTQ+ employees Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 2 Your resume is a snapshot of your professional brand and expresses your interest in a specific job that aligns most closely with the position description. It’s important that this document speak to the skills and talents you possess. Work side-by-side with a Booz Allen LGBTQ+ employee to gain valuable tips and insights to best showcase your current and past experiences and stand out as an applicant.
11 a.m.–1 p.m.
Black, LGBTQ and Christian Facilitator: Earl D. Fowlkes Jr. Panelists: Bishop Allyson Nelson Abrams, Rev. Melvin Poindexter-Miller, Rev. Dr. Dennis W. Wiley Renaissance Washington, Congressional A A panel of esteemed LGBTQ and Ally clergy will examine the stigma and seemingly inherent conflict that has been often associated with being Black, LGBTQ and Christian in our Western social construct.
TALK CTABLE E T E D N U Undetectable means reaching a point where the amount of HIV in your blood is so low it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be measured. It is important for your health and it makes it very unlikely to pass HIV to a partner. Learn more at cdc.gov/StartTalking and cdc.gov/DoingIt
Ask the Docs: Understanding Health and Wellness Presenters: Dr. R. Jones, MD FACOG; Dr. Theo W. Hodge Jr., MD Renaissance Washington, Franklin Square Watch it Live. This workshop will be streamed on facebook.com/dcblackpride Black and Brown Queer and Transgender people encounter barriers to health care that include concerns about confidentiality and disclosure, discriminatory attitudes and treatment, limited access to health care and health insurance, and often a limited understanding of their health risks. The goal of this workshop is to provide an informative and non-biased symposium on health, for Black and Brown Queer and Transgender people. Anonymous questions can be submitted via mobile phone throughout the workshop.
Introduction to Government Consulting Facilitators: Booz Allen LGBTQ+ Employees Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 2 Join Booz Allen LGBTQ+ employees as they speak on a panel about their experiences in government consulting. Topics will include consulting in general, supporting clients, being African American and/or LGBTQ+ in the workplace, and disclosure in the workplace. There will be a Q&A after the talk for audience members to ask questions related to the conversations.
Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Town Hall Facilitator: Taylor Lianne Chandler Presenters: Ian Brown, Bianca Rey, Maverick Hill, Monika Nemeth Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 6 What can we truly do to create an inclusive community? This conversation will be led by a dynamic team of community activists that have donated hours in ensuring the transgender community is a better place for everyone under the umbrella.
COMING TOGETHER WITH THE COMMUNITY TO HELP END THE HIV EPIDEMIC
We are united with the community— rallying together to correct misperceptions, erase false beliefs and to make prevention a priority for all those affected by HIV. This common goal is what unites us to never give up until the end of the HIV epidemic. GILEAD IS PROUD TO SUPPORT DC BLACK PRIDE

I AM IMPACT: It’s OVAH for Me - Story Telling Presenters: Terrance Payton, Ken Pettigrew, and Health Impact Specialists Renaissance Washington, Franklin Square In order to see community, you have to see the individual. No longer waiting on others. I am the IMPACT I needed to see. I can’t wait to see you too.
Substance Use, HIV and Suicide Among Black Queer Communities “A Community Perspective” Presenters: Kenya Hutton, Demetrius Smith Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 7 Meth, alcohol use, HIV and Suicide, has reached crisis proportions among the Black Queer community. Stigma, shame, isolation, and issues related to being black and queer often times lead to substance use and suicide. This session will explore this phenomenon in deeply personal terms. In the case of the Black Queer communities, already bearing the burden of HIV, meth and alcohol use can be devastating to a community already struggling to find resources. By bringing awareness to this subject, we can begin to shift attention to meet needs of an overlooked community. Looking ahead, members of the Black Queer community have opportunities to engage broader audiences with mechanisms that prioritize value and emphasize impact. This session will bring much needed information to the Black Queer community to empower them on how to make impact in this area and provide information to be prepared for this epidemic locally.
Trans and Non-binary Youth Town Hall Renaissance Washington, Meeting Room 6 DC Black Pride will feature a panel of young trans and non-binary youth and young adults. This town hall is open to trans and non-binary people under the age of 29. The panel will be a moderated discussion about issues affecting our community. Topics will include life experiences in your identities, healthy relationships, intimate partner violence, having a fun and healthy sex life, and community activism for trans and non-binary millennials. There will be a Q&A and audience participation is encouraged. Bring a friend(s), love(s) or partner(s).

“I personally had been
sitting there every year of my life saying, ‘I’m not going to live to see the next year ‘cause I have AIDS.’ But I don’t have AIDS. I’m just HIV-positive. That’s a big difference.”
An Oral History Collection: The Intersection of HIV and Whitman-Walker Health in Washington, DC “I went in Whitman-Walker and I asked them – I literally told them I didn’t have no insurance and I wasn’t working and that I had AIDS and that I needed to try to get insurance. The guy that worked with me – I can’t remember his name – was as good as gold. Then he signed me up with Dr. Martins. Dr. Martins ran all the tests and actually after the tests came back he said, you are HIV-positive; you don’t have AIDS. You’re just HIV-positive. There’s a big difference in that. That made me feel better because I personally had been sitting there every year of my life saying, ‘I’m not going to live to see the next year ‘cause I have AIDS.’ But I don’t have AIDS. I’m just HIV-positive. That’s a big difference. I didn’t learn that until I went to Dr. Martins. To this day, I praise Dr. Martins for everything he has done for me and everything that he is still doing for me – each and every day of my life.”
