Pride in the South Central Region

Pride was the first weekend in June in Kansas City. It began with a big ecumenical service in which the newly elected Province VII coordinator, the Rev. Susan McCann participated at a local MCC church on Wednesday evening, June 3, and continued throughout the weekend. Lots of activities. Lots of people. Proud Parish Partner, Grace, Liberty, served dinner at the AIDS Quilt dinner.

Fort Worth Pride planning committee moved Pride Day to October because of the heat in the Fort Worth area in June. However, Q Cinema is happy to partner once again with the Stonewall Democrats to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots with screenings of the excellent documentaries Before Stonewall and After Stonewall. Before screens at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 27, with After following at 4 p.m. Both films screen at the Fort Worth Public Library screening room downtown. The address is 500 W. Third St. Admission is FREE.

Celebrate Pride with Integrity at the Houston Pride Parade Saturday 06/27/09! Our starting point: Corner of Hazard & Harold We are #21 this year! Everyone in place by 8:00 pm.
