President Augusta Pride
We’ve come a long way from 50 years ago, when one could be arrested for going to a gay bar. Augusta Pride has also come a long way since I attended the first Festival eight years ago. I’ve cheered on its growth and was energized to join the committee four years ago to keep the festival growing. While the LGBT movement has had many successes in recent years, there are still issues our community needs to address. Workplace and housing discrimination, transgender rights, and adoption rights are just a few battles to be won, while new achievements could slip away with the stroke of a pen or new Court appointment. When you stand up together to be counted, your voices can’t be ignored. The first Stonewall anniversary was about visibility and showing the world that we are your neighbors, your friends, your coworkers, and your family members. I hope to see you this weekend!
