Pride Week

I apologize I’m a little behind the ball on posting on Pride Week. And there’s already been big news! The Review Journal has endorsed SB283, the Domestic Partnership Bill. I don’t know if this means Hell is freezing over or that the small contingent of gays at the RJ staged a coup. Either way, it’s a victory for equality that the newspaper with the largest circulation in the state (at least I think it does, it’s been dwindling for so long I can’t be sure) has endorsed this bill. So suck on that Gibbons!

There are a lot of events happening this week to celebrate PRIDE. You can see the full list here.
