In dedication to and in memory of Stonewall, Heritage of Pride welcomes the participation of all - regardless of age, creed, gender, gender identification, HIV status, national origin, physical, mental or developmental ability, race, religion or sexual orientation.”

According to Catherine R. Laporte of Catz Entertainment, “We are delighted that so many have embraced Taborah’s inspirational lyrics. The song has been striking a chord with females and the GLBT community because of its straight forward lyrics of encouragement. The song is attractive to anyone who has the self-confidence to be who they are with comfort, ability and strength and in the spirit of the 2005 Heritage of Pride theme, “Equal Rights – No More…No Less” Taborah is pleased to be a part of the events this year! Produced by KTU resident DJ/Mixmaster Johnny Rocks, “I AM” (the rising) is uplifting, fun and thought provoking".

Singer/songwriter Taborah has lots to celebrate with a new single release, a new songwriter contract with performing rights leader, BMI and her return to the stage. With lyrics like, “I’m gonna make my own set of rules and be just who I want to be” and “I control my destiny”, the disc is released on Independent label, Catz Entertainment and available during the shows. A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the Heritage of Pride programs.

Taborah is no stranger to the record charts, as she received a FIMI Award, Italy’s equivalent to the US Grammy Award and landed on the Billboard charts for 30 consecutive weeks and Hit Parade and Musica e Dische charts with number one hit songs in the 90’s under the name Blackwood. Taborah previously released hits including “Ride On The Rhythm” and “My Love For You”, which were dance club hits in Europe. Taborah says, “I am thrilled to be able to speak for so many people through my lyrics and I am delighted to be back on the stage! “I AM” enjoying every minute of it”!
