Prideful Reflections: 4 Years of Leading a Connecticut Municipal Pride Group 🏳️‍🌈

During our launch night, we had my friend and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman come be our Keynote Speaker. Nancy’s been a strong advocate and ally for the LGBTQ+ for many years.
We marched in Middletown’s Pride Parade — an initiative that we started!
For three years, so far, we’ve raised the flag and have lit up the Beehive Bridge.
Was such an honor to lead a great group of individuals.
We got involved in policy — from the Equality Act to the gay blood ban to education. We let our elected leaders know. where we stood on issues.
The moment after Mayor Stewart gave the go-ahead to start New Britain Pride
Thank you for the memories.
