Re: “Acceptance lives at PrideFest

lets flip this coin over. on the flip side all I saw at the so called "pride Fest" was a bunch of half baked excuses for representations of the diversity in our community, hardly"acceptance living" And speaking of half baked, lets look at the idea of this being a more mature festival, and family friendly environment. OK so honestly who really thinks that pride should be a more mature event, that's not the idea of pride. What pride has the ability to do is give any and all members of our community a chance to be exactly who they are with no guilt, no matter how crazy they are, its the fun of it, and also the "pride " in it. It made me sick to see a pride fest go out of its way to not be a pride fest. There were no banners , there where no rainbow flags or any obvious signs saying what was going on in acacia park. So technically it should be called" family days for some gay people who don't want to be obvious, and some random wandering citizens with children ...fest"..Is it that much to ask of our so called leaders, that we can have an all out pride fest for once, if Denver doesn't want to have a true pride fest, and trust me , they don't want to (judging by the sheer number of vendors seen at all such events, and lack of community on display), then Colorado Springs has an amazing opportunity to do it up huge..just use memorial park, and have vendors and "family time during the day, and adult , crazy pride at night...just an idea for those who think we are all family oriented, submissive, quiet, no opinion gays..I want to show my" PRIDE"next year!

Re: “It's not too late, Mr. Mayor

I must say that i find the issue of a gay pride recognition to be completely off base from reality, as some on the radio say , "it is a great distraction". The facts of the matter are really quite clear, mayor Bach does not support the gay community in this city, or any segment of the city he does not find politically expedient to his office, we all knew that anyway, and the "GLBT"community leaders do not represent the GLBT community as a whole either. So we can move on past the part where Mayor Bach wont sign the proclamation, and move on to more important things. Things such as finding a common ground , not common differences.
