St. Cloud Pride '12
Saturday, September 15, 2012
The St. Cloud Pride Festival kicks off four days of activities with a 7 p.m. Sept. 20 marriage equality rally in Barden Park, opposite the Miller Center.
St. Cloud State's LGBT Resource Center is a lead partner for the Sept. 20-23 St. Cloud Pride Festival, which is an annual celebration for local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities and their allies.
Keynote speaker at the rally is Jim Graves, 6th District candidate for Congress. Music is by the award-winning Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus, a 120-member group with a regional reputation.
The rally will present arguments against the proposed constitutional amendment that would define marriage in Minnesota as a union between a man and a woman. The amendment is on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot.
A march will follow at about 8:30 p.m.
