Pride 2009 in full affect!



We're off and running! It's Pride 2009 in the City and there's a slew of activities covering a much ground for the GLBTQ community and beyond. Of course, I don't want you to forget about the Pride Picnic in Allsop Park this Sunday, June 21, 2009. We are an official sponsor and been in full throttle to make this event a sure winner to conclude the week and as we welcome the first day of Summer 09! The Picnic committee jumped into action and we have been amazed at the creative power that has been unleashed by core members and those who have answered the call to action. Ryan Olson, CAR program director, demonstrated that we can broadcast our message in video and this forum book ended the effort with our "Pod Snap" sent out to our e-list, with the hopes that each of these new media mash ups will go viral! Did you pass it on? Personally, it's been deliciously fun even as time was of the essence and a "survivor" attitude quickly took hold. Thematically, the picnic will encourage each of us in attendance and those not, that we must began to find unity in our "six degrees of separation." Overall, it's the colorful ties that bind us, not indifference, insensitivity's or internal complexities that continue to fragment those determined to make a difference and the precious resource necessary to fuel these efforts. I urge all of you to attend what you may of the activities happening in the area, but please heed my plea for your attendance at this Sunday's event. If you haven't had a chance to donate or show your support, you still can. Call 244-9690 or hit me up here in the comment section. Come see me as I look forward to seeing all you and meeting new faces. Won't you join me!
