“In many ways, One Lost Day builds on the Indigo Girls’ well-established authenticity of voice and narrative. The album tells stories of loves never realized (“Elizabeth”) and loves left behind (“Learned It On Me”). There are also stories of dealing with grief (“Happy in the Sorrow Key”), addiction (“If I Don’t Leave Here Now”), as well as political accounts such as “The Rise of the Black Messiah” centered on Herman Wallace of the Angola 3. Throughout their career, the Indigo Girls have been known for songs that focus on self-awareness as well as social action.”
According to The Pride Center website, the upcoming discussion will “facilitate an open dialogue on ‘women born women only politics’ and its impact on the relationships between lesbian and transgender women.”
A professional panel will inform the conversation with their experience and insights: Denise Spivak, President of Women in Network (WIN); Robin Schwartz, President of Aqua Foundation for Women; Tori Bertran, Activist/ Board Member of Aqua Foundation for Women; and Diana O’Brien, Activist/ AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) Coordinator.
