Local communities respond to the recent mass shooting in Orlando. We bring you to vigils held this week in Bangor and Belfast, Maine and then we talk with long time activist and former “Ism Prism” host Valentine King and open the phone lines for your calls. Valentine King is a cultural maven and independent thinker who has been based in Sommesville, Maine for the past 8 years. Originally from Philadelphia, he was active in the independent arts and queer cultural movement in the 1980s, and was part of the movement fighting for recognition of AIDS as a national health crisis at that time. For many years, he was a youth development worker at the Youth Health Empowerment Project, an agency devoted to promoting HIV prevention and youth leadership.
