Cleveland cancels Pride out of security concerns

Cleveland Pride has canceled Pride for 2016, out of security concerns. The Washington Blade has a detailed story.

Pride has been postponed from its usual time for the Republican Convention.

This seems to be the first cancellation since the Pulse attack in Orlando on June 12.
I am somewhat familiar with the city from boyhood summers in Ohio in the 1950s. The city should have been back to normal right after the convention. The Washington Nationals split a series with the Cleveland Indians (many of whose games I saw in the old stadium) the following week. I was last there in August 2012, with a quick night visit to the grounds of the Rock-and-Roll Museum.
