Your Pride listing totally ignored the African American celebrations throughout the Country. How could you not mention Atlanta on Labor day, D.C. on memorial day, L.A. Beach party on the 4th of July, and Chicago on the 4th of July. The list goes on and on. I would hope that you would be more inclusive in the future.

What's Your Opinion?
Do you celebrate LGBT Pride in your city or town?
Yes! I'm out there every year with my rainbows on.
No! I'm over it -- Pride is for tourists, politicians and the newly out.
I would, but there are no Pride events or celebrations in my area.
What's Pride?
