In the last month, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered and non-gender identified people have marched and demonstrated in the streets to continue the fight for the human rights to live and love. From San Francisco to Berlin and the United Kingdom, millions of people demonstrated for everything from the right to marry to the right to avoid persecution from their governments based on their sexuality. The gay power movement began out of the Stonewall riots in New York in 1969, but today many gay activists express outrage over the commodification of queer culture into a giant target market. This year, COORS was dropped as the sponsor of many parades, based on its anti-gay policies.

Just before 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, a jubilant and colorful crowd gathered on the west side of the Fayetteville Square awaiting the start of Northwest Arkansas Gay Pride���s first Gay Pride Parade. The event was held in solidarity with many more being held around the United States this weekend and this month as June has been designated as Gay Pride Month. According to parade participant Jori Costello, the event was organized in order to show that ���we are proud of being who we are.��� Costello went on to say, ���Diversity is the key. Diversity is tolerance - letting people be who they are - loving individuals. As long as you harm no one there should be no harm come to you.��� The parade and march, while a significant and new event in Fayetteville, was not the only scheduled Gay Pride activity for this festive weekend. For Saturday night, festivities were scheduled for Ron���s Place on Poplar Street. Activities would begin at 6:00 pm with outside things for kids to do. Then, at 7:00 pm, there would be live singing featuring Sarah Hughes. At 9:00 pm a drag show would be the happening thing. The show was to spotlight Raven Blue & Guest. For the later part of the evening, starting at 10:00 pm, Grandpa���s Goodtime Fandango was set to provide two hours of live band music. At midnight, the entertainment was set to shift gears into two hours of dancing with a live DJ. Finally, a Gay Pride Picnic is scheduled for Agri Park on Rt. 112, in Northwest Fayetteville on Sunday afternoon (today)from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. As parade participants and floats gathered together to begin their trek around the square, down East Avenue to Dickson Street, and finally to Powerhouse Seafood, Universal Unitarian Fellowship of Fayetteville minister and long-time supporter of gay rights, the Reverend Rhett Baird, delivered an inspiring message to both participants and by-standers. What follows is the full text of his message:
