Official Statement from the GLCCB:
We are extremely proud of the representation of diversity, solidarity and PRIDE at yesterday’s parade. However, we are aware and dismayed by the fact that 2 to 3 individuals who inserted themselves into the parade without knowledge or approval from the Pride committee, espouse views that are opposed to everything that we at the GLCCB stand for.
We hear your concern. We share your frustration.
We are being proactive in our conversations and open in our communications with members of the LGBTQ/SGL community who are affected by the unsanctioned individuals and their divisive messages.
Our mission is, and will always remain, to support, protect, and value the many identities and viewpoints within our community.
We will NEVER stand with those who attempt to divide, demean or threaten these values.
— The GLCCB Board of Directors
