Pride week reflections

It was incredible to be part of the Pride March last Saturday with thousands of others. It was even more powerful to listen to Chasten Buttigieg speak both at the march and the day before at the State Theatre. Thank you, Traverse City, for offering such a warm welcome home to someone who embodies hope, love and caring and who I hope will become the first gentleman of the United States with his husband Pete Buttigieg elected president. Please consider looking into his campaign, as Pete Buttigieg is a top-tier candidate and his husband grew up here.

Thank you to all the organizers and nonprofits at the event who put in so much work and thank you Traverse City leaders for helping build an inclusive community.
