1,000 Marriage Equality Petitions Gathered at First Coast Pride
First Coast Pride week was this past week (July 29th-August 6th) in Jacksonville and all of the events were able to avoid rain, for the most part. Temperatures were the typical 90's of August, but that didn't stop thousands of attendees from having a great time! Equality Florida was able to gather nearly 1000 signatures for Marriage Equality and 7 of those who signed also expressed interest in volunteering in the future with Equality Florida. American Idol's Kimberly Locke was the headliner and she was amazing!
There's one more Pride in North Florida this year in Gainesville (October 1st.) I'm looking forward to gathering signatures there as well!
