    • Please come out and show your support! This event has been getting bigger and PROUDER every year and everyone is welcome. It is amazing to see the community come together and have a fun time. Bring your friends and family…

      • If it’s going to be anything like the San Francisco hedonistic clown show, no thanks. Pride should be about Gay poets, writers, artists, scientists, academicians, contributors to a better society. Watching a bunch of writhing half naked males gyrating upon a float or stage does zero for the meaning of pride. And males claiming they are females is about as ludicrous as it gets. It’s in the water is my guess.

  1. Looking forward to supporting the community!

  2. Who cares about a group of self-centered exhibitionists parading around wearing falsies. Think I’ll plant a garden instead. I agree with Devon.

    • Every year the LGBTQ+ community grows in the community, just like your garden! Best wishes with the gardening…

      “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers” (Galatians 6:9-10)

      • Well I’m sorry Mr or Mrs but you are twisting scripture. You may want to read what the Bible says about this and what will happen if it keeps up.
        The Bible says repent and turn away from your sin.
        Not saying you have to hate them but you have to flee from the sun and this is a sin!
        Just saying!

        • “Read the bible” and I the other commenter was the one quoting scripture.

          In the end it’s all just a bunch of hocus hocus. Christianity is a form of social control that has been used by elites for centuries to enslave the lower classes.

          Nothing awaits you after death, only the crows to pick upon your bones.
