PIERRE HABIS: Hello, I’m Pierre Habis of Union Bank. Diversity is one of our most closely held values. This is why we’re proud to honor local heroes in celebration of LGBT Pride Month. Let’s meet one of our honorees. LARRY BAZA: I’m Larry Baza, I have been involved in the civil rights movement, an activist in the arts community and as an LGBT person in the struggle for civil rights. I truly believe that the arts create a vibrant society and healthy communities and public art is yet another powerful tool in creating livable cities. A good public art project says this city cares about a livable space. That’s the reward for me; when I feel like there is something that the community is going to benefit from.
