We need Spring Prides; forget the Summer.

Halloween Kills (at least if there’s Michael Myers), but Summer kills more. Many cities/parts of the Central Valley can get uncomfortably hot, with temperatures of over 100 on some days or even for several days of a week. As a Fresno resident, I have stayed indoors or minimized being outside on the many 100+ or near 100 degree days, so color me surprised that Fresno and other cities within the valley still have summer prides. There are several major cities whose pride takes place in the winter, fall, or spring, which is crucial for cities with unbearable temperatures like Miami and Tampa Bay. I’m no event organizer, but I think having a Pride in any season but Summer would be welcome by everyone.
