This year I manned the Community of Hope’s booth at Pride fest, whose theme was Pride 365. I had a little more time to prepare so our display seemed to blend in well. As last years, I got the deep impression that Pride in Las Cruces is much more inclusive than other communities. Seeing all the young and older folks together, families and allies, surrounded by businesses and food vendors and non-profits sent a really strong message about the unity growing in this city. Although we all have much work ahead, it is uplifting to be part of a diverse movement of people investing in and preserving civil and human rights for all of us.
Thanks to all the organizers for another great event, and see you all next year!
