On Friday, August 20th, the Arizona Jewish Historical Society (AZJHS) will host a special virtual presentation by Judy and Dennis Shepard, the parents of Matthew Shepard, a gay American student at the University of Wyoming who was murdered in a hate crime in October 1998. Matthew’s death moved many thousands of people around the world to attend vigils and rallies in his memory. The Arizona Jewish Historical Society will help to honor Matthew’s memory by making a humanistic/emotional connection via his parents.
Judy and Dennis decided to turn their grief into action and established the Matthew Shepard Foundation to carry on Matthew’s legacy. The Foundation is dedicated to working toward the causes championed by Matthew during his life: social justice, diversity awareness & education, and equality for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.
The AZJHS will virtually host Judy & Dennis Shepard as part of our Surviving Humanity series, which expands our emphasis on Holocaust Education to examine other acts of hatred, genocide, and persecution. “These speaker seminars are very important to help the student to learn from the primary source,” says Dr. Lawrence Bell, Executive Director of AZJHS.
This series is part of a larger campaign by the AZJHS to create a permanent Holocaust education center on its current campus. This new Center for Hope, Humanity and Holocaust Education will provide an inclusive and collaborative space to inspire new ideas, encourage open dialogue and promote hope, human dignity and respect.
If you would like to participate in this program or future programs as a part of this series, please contact AZJHS Education Coordinator, Tony Fusco at email@example.com

The West Valley’s first blues and jazz nightclub is now open
PHOENIX- (July 8, 2021)- Westside Blues and Jazz, a locally owned and operated nightclub specializing in live blues and jazz music, announced today that it is now open to the public. Located in Glendale, Arizona, Westside Blues and Jazz is the first and only full-service nightclub in the Phoenix-metro area specializing in live blues and jazz, and the first live music lounge to open in the West Valley.
As the first and only nightclub in the Valley specializing in blues and jazz, Westside Blues and Jazz is a full-service nightclub and music venue that hosts live, professional entertainment every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The club’s live music features local, Arizona-based musicians that are nationally recognized in the blues and jazz industry, including Francine Reed; Beth Lederman; Cros; We3 & The Sahnas Brothers; Bluesman Mike; Diana Lee; Alice Tatum; Nolaz Band;Sandra Bassett; Big Pete Pearson; Ike Ramalho; Ratio Band; Sugar Thieves; Chuck Hall; and Charles Lewis Quintet, just to name a few.
To celebrate its grand opening, Westside Blues and Jazz will be hosting live musical performances starting Thursday, July 8, 2021, featuring The Ratio Band, WE3 and Sandra Bassett. The Ratio Band is one of Arizona’s premier bands specializing in rhythm and blues and is recognized as the “Best Jazz Band in Phoenix” by the Phoenix New Times and the “Best Blues Band” by the Arizona Republic. On Friday, July 9, Westside Blues and Jazz will host WE3 and Todd Chuba, a leading female group that pays tribute to timeless tunes with new and familiar interpretations of popular jazz, swing and blues. The weekend will also feature performances by the Nolaz Band, a New Orleans groove and soul musical group, and Sandra Bassett, a Motown, jazz, and rhythm and blues singer.
Owned and operated by Valley residents and longtime jazz enthusiasts, Paul Vincent Perez and Cindi Jackson, Westside Blues and Jazz is launched with the mission to build a vibrant jazz community in the Valley, keeping alive America’s original art form through music education, community involvement and quality live music by top musicians.
“Owning a blues and jazz nightclub has been on my “Bucket List” for more than 25 years and has always been a dream of mine,” said Westside Blues and Jazz co-founder, Paul Vincent Perez. “After retiring in 2019, I decided to turn my dream into a reality and open Westside Blues and Jazz. I want to expose blues and jazz to a wider community and provide a friendly and casual social scene with high quality music for all to enjoy.”
With a professional soundman on-site every night, Westside Blues and Jazz features a professional-grade sound system, lighting system and stage that provides a superior musical experience that rivals large concert venues and music halls. The nightclub also features a 2,500-square foot lounge-style seating area, dance floor, full-service bar and an outdoor patio.
Inspired by traditional Chicago-style night clubs, Perez and Jackson designed Westside Blues and Jazz to have a speakeasy atmosphere with Prohibition era décor, including industrial designs, exposed red brick walls, plush lounge chairs and sofas, vintage high top tables and bar stools, and dim mood lighting.
“Jazz is in my blood,” said Westside Blues and Jazz co-founder, Cindi Jackson. “As the niece of Arizona saxophonist Lou Garno, I was empowered to open a jazz club that celebrates and honors the history of blues and jazz. We also opened Westside Blues and Jazz out of necessity; we knew there weren’t any full-service blues and jazz clubs in the Valley that offered live music in a traditional lounge setting. We wanted to change that.”
The club’s full-service bar and lounge serves premium liquor and signature craft cocktails, such as its Miles Davis, Lady Ella and Westside Hurricane, that offer a unique twist to classic cocktail recipes. It also serves tapas and desserts, such as Bangers and Mash, Bavarian Pretzel Bites and Cod Sliders. Happy Hour is served daily with $5 food and drink specials.
Westside Blues and Jazz is located at 17045 N. 59th Ave. Suite #104, Glendale, AZ, 85308. Live music is hosted every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. (doors open at 5 p.m.), Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m., – midnight (doors open at 6 p.m.) and Sunday afternoons 2 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (doors open at noon).

TEMPE, Ariz.— It’s true. People in the LGBTQ+ community have experienced being denied from some avenues of donation based on current exclusion criteria. It’s also true: Organ donation is regulated differently than other types of donation. There is no age limit nor health requirement to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor on DonateLifeAZ.org.
Donor Network of Arizona (DNA) celebrates Pride Month and the contributions LGBTQ+ Arizonans have had in the gift of life. A person’s sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression does not prevent them from donating organs—deceased or living—according to Donate Life America.
A person’s sexual orientation and gender identity or expression also have no determination over whether they receive an organ transplant. A national system matches available organs from the donor with people on the waiting list based on blood type, body size, how sick they are, donor distance, tissue type and time on the list. Sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, race, income, celebrity and social status are never considered. Plus, HIV, which has historically impacted the LGBTQ+ community, as well as hepatitis C infections no longer prevent the possibility of lifesaving organ donation.
WHY IT MATTERS: For Pride Month 2021, we encourage the LGBTQ+ community, and everyone, to register their wishes today and offer hope to the 108,000 people on the national organ waiting list.
Arizonans can join the DonateLifeAZ Registry when they apply for or renew a driver’s license or state ID at an ADOT MVD office. They can also register online at DonateLifeAZ.org.

For this LGBTQ SMB owner, it’s the level of commitment needed to start a non-profit.
Warren Davis, principal of Warren Davis Consulting, is the recipient of the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) grant, funded by UPS as a part of the Be Unstoppable campaign, Proudly Unstoppable.
Meet Warren Davis
He’s made a career of giving back. With more than 25-years of working in the nonprofit sector, Warren knows the ins and outs of the nonprofit world —from idea inception to purpose expansion to postmortem on success. He knows how to navigate and overcome obstacles faced by many non-profits.
“I’ve always gravitated towards organizations struggling with purpose and scope that needed to get unstuck,” says Warren.
It became clear to Warren early in his education to be wary of silos. “I tend to be a generalist and follow broad interests instead of working in just one specific area.”
He says people should make an intentional effort to see beyond their local group or area perspective. “Being eclectic is a good thing.”
Warren says people tend to compartmentalize others.
Whether intentionally or not, they assume the role, circumstances, or job a person has, is because it’s what they want, or even worse, all that an individual may be capable of achieving.
Expanding his ability to help others, in 2017, Warren became a small business owner. “Rather than work for one organization, consulting allows me to help multiple organizations and causes,” says Warren.
Targeting the small to medium non-profit startups, Warren Davis Consulting provides advisory services, help with writing grant and sponsorship proposals, project management, and short-term staffing. Warren says COVID-19, which has wreaked havoc on many nonprofits, forced them to re-evaluate their purpose and goals.
A member of the LGBTQ community
“People are more likely to stand up and defend a person who is gay or lesbian if they know a person who is gay or lesbian,” says Warren.
He believes this is the main reason why advocacy and inclusion are so important. And that LGBTQ businesses should work towards certification with the NGLCC.
“It’s about representation and being able to see others like yourself that are successful.”
He says hopefully, one day, there will be no need for an organization like the NGLCC. “Just like today, gay bars are becoming obsolete because younger generations see no need for it —they are inclusive of all diversities and minorities.”
He also understands the power business has to open minds and doors.
“People want to know that the companies they work for and the businesses they frequent are inclusive of the communities they live in,” says Warren.
A heart for a cause

PHOENIX (June 17, 2021) – In celebration of Pride Month, The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation has donated $1.5 million to GLSEN. The three-year grant will be allocated between the Phoenix Chapter ($1 million) and the National Organization ($500,000) and will support the organization’s mission to ensure that every member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
“In our personal lives and through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation, one of our overarching goals is to be champions of inclusivity,” said President and Executive Creative Director of PXG Apparel Renee Parsons. “Every person deserves to feel whole, equal and welcome.”
GLSEN research has found that six out of 10 LGBTQ students have felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation and nearly eight out of 10 have avoided school functions because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable. The level of harassment these students experience negatively affects their ability to learn due to increased absenteeism and lower educational aspirations. The anti-LGBTQ bias can also have a profound impact on a student’s overall health and well-being.
“Many LGBTQ youth face cruel, often unbearable levels of bullying and discrimination,” said PXG Founder and CEO Bob Parsons. “GLSEN is working to help all K-12 students feel safe at school and accepted for who they are.”
GLSEN has developed four focus areas to help schools cultivate an inclusive, safe and supportive environment for all their students, especially those of marginalized identities.
Activating supportive educators, who are crucial to creating LGBTQ-inclusive classroom environments
Advocating for inclusive & affirming curriculum, which not only offers support to LGBTQ students but raises the awareness of all students
Passing and implementing laws and policies to ensure that LGBTQ students can learn and thrive in safe, inclusive, accepting schools
Supporting student-led clubs because student leaders are integral to creating community and pushing for change
“We are filled with gratitude for this generous grant from The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation,” said Melanie-Willingham-Jaggers, GLSEN’s Interim Executive Director. “It is because of allies like Bob and Renee Parsons that organizations like GLSEN are able to work towards making the world a safe and celebratory place for LGBTQ+ children and young people. In addition to financial support, it’s incredible to have partners who focus their power, reach and influence to lift up our community”
“This transformational gift will enable GLSEN Phoenix to mobilize even more school communities, so that all of our children get to be and become who they ought to be,” said GLSEN Phoenix founding co-chair Madelaine Adelman, Ph.D. “Feeling safe at school means having a sense of belonging, being respected, learning about yourself and others — this is simply the best way to learn.”
In addition to celebrating this grant during Pride Month, GLSEN Phoenix is launching a legacy monthly giving program.

About GLSEN Phoenix
Founded in October 2002, GLSEN Phoenix is part of a national GLSEN chapter network that works to ensure that each student in every K-12 school is valued and treated with respect, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We believe that all students deserve safe and inclusive K-12 schools. LGBTQ students who feel unsafe and unsupported at school are more likely to have been victimized and discriminated against at school, and thus, more likely to have high absenteeism, more likely to have lower GPAs, less likely to participate in school activities, more likely to have lower self esteem and a lower sense of school belonging, less likely to graduate from high school, and less likely to consider going to college. We invest the community’s time, talent, and treasure into four evidence-based interrelated areas of activity: supportive teachers, protective policies, inclusive curriculum, and empowered, student-led Gender/Sexuality Alliance (GSA) clubs. To learn more about our local programs, visit: glsenphoenix.org, facebook.com/glsen.phoenix, instagram.com/glsenphoenix, twitter.com/glsen_phoenix
GLSEN works to create safe and inclusive schools for all. We envision a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, and/or gender expression. Each year, GLSEN programs and resources reach millions of students and educators in K-12 schools, via action at the national, state, and local level. Over nearly three decades of work, GLSEN has improved conditions for LGBTQ students across the United States and launched an international movement to address LGBTQ issues in education and promote respect for all in schools. Find more information on GLSEN’s policy advocacy, student leadership initiatives, school-based programs, research, and professional development for educators at www.glsen.org.
About The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation
The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation offers support to nonprofit organizations successfully working to empower, educate, nurture and nourish people during what is often the darkest time of their lives. Founded in 2012 by philanthropists and business leaders Bob and Renee Parsons to provide hope and life-changing assistance to the country’s most vulnerable populations, The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation offers critical funding at critical times to those in need. The Foundation’s giving is driven by the core belief that all people – regardless of race, religion, roots, economic status, sexual orientation or gender identity – deserve access to quality healthcare, education and a safe place to call home.

Local community organization teams up with The Pemberton to bring a mini-pride gathering to Downtown Phoenix with resources, LGBTQ+ organization, yoga, Live DJ & more.
PHOENIX (June 15, 2021) – Only Human, a community-based organization that exists to make the world a better place by celebrating the things that make people “only human,” has partnered with local community and retail space The Pemberton to host a local Pride Night in an effort to bring the LGBTQ+ and ally community together as in-person events open back up.
“With COVID shutting down over 80+ pride events we planned to attend and/or host in 2020, we’re eager to offer a safe and joyful space for our local queer community and allies to gather together in-person as away to celebrate Pride Month and strengthen our community. This sort of “mini-pride” gathering will be casual with tabling from LGBTQ+ organizations and business alongside a Pride Yoga session and more,” stated Crissy Saint-Massey, an owner of Only Human.
While Only Human has grown rapidly over the past 5 years to become a leading global LGBTQ+ give-back community, the organization was founded in 2016 in Phoenix by Bree Pear where it has since built physical Headquarters and regularly hosts LGBTQ+focused and friendly events. The organization is queer-owned, qeer-operated and here to bring together our local community in impactful ways that foster lifelong connections and sustainable change in Phoenix and beyond.
LGBTQ+ Tabling 7pm-10pm Pride Yoga: 8pm-9pm Live DJ
This event is free to attend and/or table at. Please reach out with any questions if you are interested in having a presence.
About Only Human
A female-owned company founded in 2016 by local Phoenician, Bree Pear, with incredible growth alongside now business partner Crissy Saint-Massey, Only Human has evolved quickly as tens of thousands of good humans around the world have rallied behind the movement on social platforms and at Only Human community cause events across the country. The organization gives 10% of its profits to a new charity each month while hosting community cause events, international give back trips, and more.

Washington, D.C. – Today Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, joined with Senator Edward J. Markey (D-MA), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to introduce the Greater Leadership Overseas for the Benefit of Equality (GLOBE) Act.
The GLOBE Act, H.R. 3800, would establish equality and justice as key components of U.S. foreign policy; affirm that discrimination, hatred, and violence against LGBTQI persons will not be tolerated by the United States; and assert that the United States government will treat LGBTQI rights as human rights throughout its foreign policy, development assistance, and immigration programs. The bill would also establish a permanent Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQI Persons at the State Department.
“No person should suffer from discrimination because of who they are or whom they love,” said Congresswoman Titus (NV-1). “Under the leadership of President Biden and Secretary Blinken, the United States has the opportunity to set an example for the rest of the world by protecting the rights of LGBTQI people at home and abroad. The GLOBE Act equips the federal government with the tools and personnel it needs to promote LGBTQI rights around the world and punish regimes that persecute people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. I’m grateful to Senators Markey, Shaheen, and Merkley for their partnership on this important legislation.”
“Today, millions of people can once again see the Pride flag fly outside of U.S. embassies around the world, affirming the United States’ commitment to protecting LGBTQI rights everywhere,” said Senator Markey (D-MA). “LGBTQI rights are human rights, and we must take further steps to ensure that equality, justice, and non-discrimination policies are embedded throughout our foreign policy. President Biden and Secretary Blinken have committed to making the protection of human rights a key pillar of our work abroad, and I look forward to working with them to ensure these rights are extended to all people, no matter who they are or who they love, first and foremost by a swift appointment of the Special Envoy for LGBTQI Rights. I thank Senator Shaheen and Merkley, and Representative Titus for their leadership on this legislation and their commitment to upholding LGBQTI rights around the world.”
“As the U.S. restores its role as the global leader in promoting human rights, LGBTQI+ rights must be a top priority. We must double down on our commitment to protect the right for people to love freely and express their truest gender identity – regardless of where they live in the world,” said Senator Shaheen (D-NH). “I’m encouraged by the Biden administration’s efforts to ensure LGBTQI+ rights are integrated within our foreign policy goals, and I look forward to working with them to ensure this bill’s passage to establish a dedicated Special Envoy. We must not back down on our push for equality and justice on the global stage.”
“We are living in a moment where governments around the world continue to make dangerous threats to our LGBTQ family, friends, and neighbors,” said Senator Merkley (D-OR). “America cannot remain silent in the face of that discrimination and abuse. Every person—regardless of who they are, whom they love, or where they live—has the right to be treated with decency and respect. That’s why I’m urging my colleagues to join us in passing the GLOBE Act, to send a clear message that the United States is committed to defending those rights for the American people and for people around the world.”
“The GLOBE Act is landmark legislation that provides legal, diplomatic, and financial tools to advance human rights for LGBTQI persons globally,” said Council for Global Equality Chair Mark Bromley. “It honors the Biden Administration’s foreign policy commitments and allows U.S. embassies to offer targeted support for some of the most marginalized communities around the world.”
“President Biden and this Congress continue to make progress on protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination at home and abroad, reversing the worst actions of the previous administration,” said Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David. “The GLOBE Act to Protect LGBTI Rights Worldwide is a critical step in combating bigotry and prejudice worldwide. This legislation sends a clear message: the United States is redoubling its commitment to advancing human rights around the globe. We thank Senator Markey for his leadership and advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ people.”
“We applaud Senators Markey, Shaheen and Merkley and Representative Titus for introducing legislation that promotes a vision of justice for LGBTQI+ people who have been marginalized and criminalized by their governments,” said American Jewish World Service Director of U.S. Advocacy Rori Kramer. “For too long, U.S. foreign policy has not centered the rights of LGBTQI+ people – the GLOBE Act will change that. Addressing the wide-ranging nature of LGBTQI+ rights from foreign aid, to asylum and immigration, to global health, the GLOBE Act would ensure that the United States leads the fight to protect and promote LGBTQI+ rights around the world.”
Specifically, the GLOBE Act:
Codifies the State Department Special Envoy for the Human Rights of LGBTQI Persons in law;
Requires the State Department to document human rights abuses and discrimination against LGBTQI people around the world;
Restricts entry into the United States for foreign individuals responsible for abuse and murder of LGBTQI populations;
Ensures fair access to asylum and refugee programs for LGBTQI individuals;
Requires engagement with international organizations, including the United Nations and the World Bank, to protect international LGBTQI rights; and
Protects the rights of U.S. LGBTQI citizens serving their countries overseas at diplomatic and consular posts.
In the House, The GLOBE Act is co-sponsored by Representatives David Cicilline (RI-01), Joaquin Castro (TX-20), Chris Pappas (NH-01), Raul M. Grijalva (AZ-03), Mark Takano (CA-41), Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01), Karen Bass (CA-37), Adriano Espaillat (NY-13), Jesus “Chuy” Garcia (IL-04), Sara Jacobs (CA-53), Jan Schakowsky (IL-09), Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC-00), Brad Sherman (CA-30), Andy Levin (MI-09), Jared Huffman (CA-02), Jim McGovern (MA-02), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Stephen Lynch (MA-08), Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Suzan DelBene (WA-01), Darren Soto (FL-09), Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11), Mark Pocan (WI-02), Ted Deutch (FL-22), Grace F.
