Polk Pride In Munn Park, Lakeland

Rainbow Ridge had two tents and the Supervisor of Elections were there to register new voter.

It rained in the morning to cool thing off allowing us to shine all afternoon. At the end of the day there were protesters, the Christian Right spreading hate. The Polk Pride Staff made a circle of love around them and the crowd yelled “LOVE WILL WIN!!”, drowning out the haters. We would like to thank the Lakeland Police and to the Polk Pride Staff for their courage and strength. Here are some pics…
