OUTFEST FUSION FILM FESTIVAL, UTLA RALLY AT GRAND PARK, AND MORE UPDATES
A reminder for this evening and then some.
First up, the Outfest Fusion QTBIPOC Film Festival takes over Los Angeles online and in person starting next Friday; the festival is the largest of its kind for LGBTQUIA+ communities in the city and features “dramas, comedies, documentaries, short films, special events and more.” Mara Tatevosian (@maratatevos) (she/her/hers) is a fellow for Outfest Fusion’s 2022|2023 Film Programming Fellowship and a queer Armenian-Iranian-American filmmaker and curator. She has graciously volunteered her time to speak with us about Outfest Fusion tonight and you do not want to miss it.
Secondly, UTLA is having a rally this Wednesday, March 15th, 2023 at Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles. See you there, maybe?
Next up, on Thursday, March 23rd, we chat with none other than the Council Member for the 8th district in Los Angeles, Marqueece Harris-Dawson. Items for discussion include policies engaging homelessness in the predominantly Latino and African-American district, the new Destination Crenshaw initiative, L.A.’s relation to the city of Inglewood, and more. Set a reminder because it’s gonna be another one to remember.
Finally, we received our 2nd Listener Report for the new J.T. Weather Report!
Here are the four easy steps to take when calling into the new hotline:
I. Choose an interesting nickname for yourself to keep your anonymity.
II. Tell me which side of The City (or County) you’re calling from.
III. Tell me how you’re liking the weather, or if you’ve seen anything interesting through it like a downed power line, fallen tree, a pack of opossums, etc.
IV. Keep it under a minute! This helps us tune in to more reports rather than less.
***And if you’d like to keep your number anonymous as well, did you know that pressing *67 before you dial a number keeps your number blocked? That’s right!
Submit your voicemail to the J.T. Weather Report at (213) 458-5042.
