Letter: Radio station breaking some boundaries, building bridges

July 18, 2013 

I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and thanks to the local radio station Power 99.1 for having "Same Love" by Macklemore on their playlist. Not only are the song and artist two of my favorites right now, the subject matter is so important but so difficult to find in our politically conservative community.

If more major artists, more local radio stations and more small towns start showing their consideration and support for the LGBTQ community, we'll have fewer needless suicides, more good people living true to themselves, more happy marriages and more successful families and communities.

Thanks Tri-Cities for showing your love!
