One shouldn’t hide or stay quiet when the first Pride was a riot! To sing! Rejoice! Lift up your voice and chance a dance! The joy to be, not a tall ask! To live freely, why’s it a task for so many when love’s plenty is there to share!?

Pre-pandemic the local Pride-Fest would be the first week-end in June. It was canceled last year and is scheduled for October (LGBTQ+ History Month) this year, provided it can happen. The picture is from the 2019 Festival.
