Kingsburg pride celebration

Despite a set back with their local board voting against raising a rainbow flag at city hall in honor of June being nationally recognized as LGBTQ+ pride month the fight continues. Kingsburg will be hosting a pride celebration at a local park to honor and commemorate gay pride! Here are the deets:

Kingsburg’s inaugural pride celebration will be held at Coffee Pot Park on June 26th at 3pm. Coffee Pot Park is located at 1460 Marion Street in Kingsburg, California 93631.

Urgent support needed in Kingsburg, California tommorrow

It looks as though a fight is brewing in Kingsburg, California over an LGBTQ+ pride month resolution that will go before the city council. The pride proposal has caught the attention of the Fresno County Republican Party and its chairperson. This is hot off the press from Fresno Stonewall Democrats…

Kingsburg City Council Woman and Fresno Stonewall member, Jewel Hurtado needs our support! Republicans are organizing to defeat her Pride proposal. LGBTQ voices need to be heard, even in Kingsburg, because we are everywhere! Please get the word out!

Marsha Conant, Fresno Stonewall President

It seems as though the anti-gay (Republican) party chairperson, Frank Zanderhoof, has tomorrow’s city council meeting in his target scope. Check out the statement he sent out today regarding the local pride proposal…

To all Conservatives:

•There is an urgent need to attend a Kingsburg City Council meeting tomorrow, Wed, May 19th (1401 Draper St. Kingsburg, CA 93631)

•LGBTQ activists (many from out of town) are planning to ask the Kingsburg City Council to establish one full month to honor the LGBTQ community, including a parade and flags on City Hall

•In these types of meetings it is common for a City Council to be pressured into voting for the requests/demands of the group that has the greatest number of people attending.

•Speakers are needed, however, even if you don’t speak your presence is very important.

•The meeting begins at 6 PM, but it’s a good idea to arrive around 5 PM.

You’re welcome to spread the word!

Thank you,

Fred Vanderhoof, Fresno County Republican Party Chairman
