Kwanzaa Celebration

Last night we had our second annual Kwanzaa celebration at Jesus Metropolitan Community Church, the largest GLBT church in the midwest. This year we had performances by The Urban Vibes drum troupe as well as a presentation by Mr. Kamau Jywamza. Mr. Jywanza is the city wide Kwanzaa celebration director. The celebration was inspiring and uplifting and we have committed to doing it again next year. Although we understand the principles of Kwanzaa derive from African history and culture, the messages of unity, self determination, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith are universal and can be applied to all of our lives.
As a black gay man I am both honored and blessed to be able to incorporate the Kwanzaa celebration into not only my life as a black man, but my life as a gay man as well!!

Today we meditate on UJAMAA- cooperative economics. To build and maintain our own stores and businesses and profit from them together.

Thats whats going on!!
