Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement in Support of 2014 Pride Weekend in Burlington, VT

“Since the year after Stonewall in 1969, Pride Weekends have played a huge role in the transformation of America into a country that is more inclusive and accepting of LGBTQ people.  We are fortunate to have the tradition of Pride Weekend being continued in 2014 in Burlington.  I encourage Burlingtonians – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allies – to take part in the celebratory and community-building activities planned for this weekend and next in Burlington by our local organizations.  Whether you attend Outright Vermont’s 11th Annual Fire Truck Pull next Saturday (9/20) on Church Street or the Vermont Pride Festival and Parade on Sunday in Battery Park (9/14), you will send a message of support in solidarity with our entire community as we work towards greater equality and acceptance for everyone.”
