We may not yet have our Pride festival in June, but there is an event this weekend that will give the Roanoke, Va. LGBT community the opportunity to show its Pride and make a statement.
There will be a Rally for Full Equality on Sunday, June 28th at 1:30 pm at the Franklin Rd. entrance of Elwood Park in downtown Roanoke.
Scheduled speakers include Sen. John Edwards (D. Va.), Rev. Joe Cobb of Metropolitan Community Church of the Blue Ridge, Len Rogers of The Stonewall Society and Rev. Steven Stanley of Christ Episcopal Church.
Don't wait until September to show the world Roanoke has Pride. I'll be there talking to people, taking pics and looking for stories.
My "Pride During Pride Month" poll is posted. Make your voice heard by casting your vote on the right side bar.
If you've got stories, pictures or information about upcoming LGBT events in or around the Roanoke region that you'd like to see on Rev. Steve's Cyber-Pulpit, email me at email@example.com
