I marched in the Pride Parade with the Green Party of Minnesota, 5th Congressional District on June 24th, 2012 (photos below).  I marched holding my new lawn signs for my campaign.  We also had the signs of the Green Party’s 10 Key Values.  I support diversity, and the rights of the LGBT community, as does the Green Party.

It was a wonderful day of getting out and supporting causes that I strongly believe in, such as the vote NO on the marriage amendment campaign for this fall in the State of Minnesota.  I support the rights of all people to marry who they want to, and that marriage does not have to be just between a man and a woman only.  I support love.

There were so many people out for Pride Festival this year, despite the brutal heat.  We measured the temperature at 100 degrees as we marched down Hennepin Ave.  (one of our members brought a thermometer – that pavement was HOT!).

It was an honor to be out representing my party and to be marching with them as an endorsed candidate.  Cam Gordon, Minneapolis City Council, Ward 2, and Green Party member, marched with us also.  It was a fun day with lots of sights, as Pride always is!
