Punk Rock Farmer Friday: Art Meets Fashion, Inclusion Center, Gayest Bake Sale Ever, Utah Valley Permaculture, Earth First Organix Urban Farm, and Live Music from The Hips

Hosted by Lara Jones and Aldine Strychnine, KRCL's Punk Rock Farmer, tonight's RadioActive included:

  • Heidi Greiss of Art Meets Fashion Foundation on their runway event this weekend, featuring 10 local designers. Special Guests: Avant Garde Designer Elena Slivnyak and Floral Fashion Designer Shelly Huynh.

  • Heba Geiang and Abed Alsolaiman of the Inclusion Center for Community and Justice. KRCL was named the ICCJ's Humanitarian Organization of the Year earlier this week! Congratulations to Ted Wilson and Dr. Jacqueline Thompson (Davis School District Educational Equity), who were also honored for their work in the community.

  • Musician and activist Hillary McDaniel, who has organized The Gayest Bake Sale Ever in response to the LDS Church and local state senators who have signed friend-of-the-court briefs in support of a Colorado baker who, citing religious convictions, refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding.

    • The Gayest Bake Sale Ever is happening Monday, Sept. 18, from 5:00-7:30 p.m. at City Creek Park, which is on the northeast corner of North Temple and State Street, SLC.

    • All money raised by the bake sale will go to the Utah Pride Center’s new “LGBTQ+ Youth Survivors of Suicide Support Group.” ‚ÄčThis group's specific purpose is to provide support and community for youth (ages 16-20) who have attempted suicide. 

    • For those unable to donate, organizers still encourage you to come and have a treat at no-cost to show support and learn more about volunteer opportunities to uplift and support local queer youth.

  • Al's Urban Farm Report, featuring Denise De Vynck and the food forest of Utah Valley Permaculture and Kevin Nash of Earth First Organix Urban Farm.

  • Live music from The Hips.
