Despite the weather, Roanoke Pride was a marvelous success! We got to hang out with a lot of old friends, made some new ones, and enjoyed a day of embracing attitudes in the heart of Roanoke, VA.
Some highlights include a concert set by Brody Ray, an exceptional musician and vocal advocate for transgender rights, cupcakes from the LGBTA of Virginia Tech, and lots of hugs from the great folks at the Roanoke Diversity Center. Of course, we can’t neglect to mention PFLAG, who meet monthly in our small sanctuary.
It was a wonderful day to walk past protesters (yes, some where there) into the loving embrace of a supportive community.
