June 2017 – This month we are celebrating the tomato in all its’ glory, with pride.
Tomatoes, like people come in a variety of sizes and colors, with unique characteristics and since June is gay pride month we’d like to celebrate the variety of human diversity specifically the LGBTQIA community.
We therefore are calling this months episode…Gay-zpacho!
** NEW 2021 EDIT + Bonus interview with Zarah Bone of NW Queer Chorus & their music!
We’re making the Spanish soup Gazpacho after a quick cultural lesson from Spainard & hairdresser extraordinaire… Antonio Diaz! http://www.bryanbantry.com/antonio-diaz/
We’ll discuss the multitude of varieties and tips on how to care for your own tomato plants with Lori Vollmer, co-owner of Garden Fever, a fabulous NE Portland gardening store. http://www.gardenfever.com
Music this month is a selection of songs from Pedro Almodovar’s movies and we close the show with an orginal piece by our own “Little Bear” – Jai Hurdle titled… “Cherry Tomato”! www://soundcloud.com/jai-hurdle
Go plant your tomato plant with Pride! (a little late in the season but not out of the question)
The heat is here – time to make a nice big bowl of Gay-zpacho!
Peace, Love and (of course) Soup!
