HIT: To the LGBTQ Pride Rainbow Rally held Saturday at the downtown Auburn NYS Equal Rights Heritage Center.
This event, which celebrated progress in the efforts to secure civil rights for LGBTQ people and raise awareness about the work that remains, drew a strong crowd to the new city attraction. It also capped a week's worth of dynamic and powerful programs around the city held in conjunction with Pride Month.
The rally truly showed Auburn at its finest as a center for championing equal rights, with the heritage center providing a superb venue to put it all in a historical context. We hope this event continues and grows bigger and even better in the future.
