If you ask 25 people what “pride” means, you’ll get 25 different answers. That’s exactly what we did; to celebrate the amazingly diverse LGBTQ community here in Philadelphia, we queried (queer-ied?) our gay and straight allies to describe “pride” in five words or less. The answers are as varied and interesting as the people who make up this great city. Check out their answers below:
Out State Representative Brian Sims is throwing his first town hall of his new term, where he will answer questions ranging from what he's done in office over the past year to the work he's got planned down the road. He's there to answer questions, too, so bring some tough ones—particularly those about how he plans pass statewide LGBT anti-discrimination laws and ones that protect the LGBT community from hate crimes. Thursday, February 12th, 6pm-7:30pm, free, Bonnell Auditorium at Community College of Philadelphia, 1700 Spring Garden Street.
