Press release submitted by the Greater Quad Cities Area PRIDE Fest

The Greater Quad Cities Area PRIDE Fest ‘09 celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (“LGBT”) Pride with a variety of events during PRIDE Week, Sunday, June 21 – Saturday, June 27. The international theme for PRIDE this year is “Your Rights, Our Rights, Human Rights.” Says QC PRIDE co-chair, Rev. Rich Hendricks, “We’ve expanded on that theme locally by playing on the possibilities for change in Iowa/Illinois law and with a reminder of last years’ quite windy PRIDE day in coming up with a QC PRIDE ’09 theme of ‘Winds of Change.””
