Northern Virginia Pride 2018 held today; Governor of Virginia spoke
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam spoke at Northern Virginia LGBTQ Pride today, in Bull Run Park, in Fairfax County, but near Manassas and near the Bull Run monuments.
I only recorded the few ending seconds as I did not realize he had mounted the stage. He arrived and left by helicopter. The Washington Blade also reports that Terry McAuliffe spoke.
The appearance reminded me of former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg’s appearance at an HRC dinner a few years ago.
Earlier a female speaker criticized societal expectations of gender roles and mentioned Thursdays Senate Judiciary hearings as very difficult for women.
Later a rock group called Wicked Jezabel performed.
The Washington DC Gay Mens Chorus had a booth, and offers a concert Oct. 10 “Ropebuan 2: Guaridans of Equality”.
