LGBT Pride 365 in Wilson Park

Posted:

The LGBT community celebrated in Wilson park Saturday with a pride rally.

Organizers say the event is called Pride 365 as a way to remind the LGBT community to be proud every day of who they are.

Bands, food, and face–painting helped rally goers have a good time. Kathy Kandt, the vice president of the Black Hills Center for Equality, says the attendance for the rally this year is a little it lower than last year probably because of the heat.

Kandt says it's important to hold celebrations like this because the LGBT community has been fighting battles for years to lay the foundation for future generations to be able to stand up for themselves. "Now we have kids who are openly gay in school and nobody thinks a thing of it and that's the way life should be," said Kandt. "That's why we celebrate pride."

Jordan Cuttrell says pride events aren't just for those who are LGBT. "Pride is a great opportunity for people who aren't gay, who don't know a lot about the LGBT community, to come and meet people, to get to know us, and figure out that we're just like everybody else," said Cuttrell. 


This is the tenth rally put on by the Black Hills Center for Equality.
