Sioux Falls Pride is a vibrant diverse community celebration that honors lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) culture. Sioux Falls Pride has grown from around 500 around 15 years ago to nearly 9,000 attendees last year. Sioux Falls Pride hopes that numbers continue to grow as events, volunteer opportunities and community partnerships increase.

Sioux Falls Pride 2018 has expanded its month long line up of events that take place all over the city, planned entirely by volunteers and local businesses. All events are low cost, or free to participate with most for all ages.

I encourage my readers to attend this event if you never have. I have always had a blast and has been a wonderful learning experience. Plus the vendor booths are worth the visit alone!

Drag queen story time at the library. Imagine your outrage if this were a bible reading story time by a priest.

LJL. LOL. That would never happen, Catholics don’t read the bible.

You’re using too cheap of bait to hook me.

We need to add a constitutional amendment stating” the government will establish no sexual orientation”.

So why the outrage that the mayor is not attending? Being gay is a lifestyle choice why do they need the city to endorse it? If a man and women start dating does the mayor need to go on their date and read a proclamation that he is for it?

WP – I’m not upset he isn’t attending. He has plans with his family for Father’s Day. I think that is a fair excuse. Even if he didn’t oh well. But I do disagree with you, while I think some people choose sexual orientation, I think that number is very small. I think most are born that way. There have been thousands of studies about it for over 60 years.

I maybe misspoke, it is not really a choice people make but it is a lifestyle people live. I just don’t see why the city has to endorse it. Some people like Star Wars but if they had a Star Wars convention here and the mayor did not attend would it make the Argus Leader?

#8 White Panther on 06.15.18 at 3:24 pm

I maybe misspoke. People don’t really choose to be gay. I am just saying its a lifestyle not a race or ethnic background. Why does the city need to endorse it?
Some people like Country Music some don’t but did the mayor have to speak at Garth Brooks’ concert?

I know for me I was born transgender . People are born this way .A man comes from a woman a clitorious is a undeveloped penis . Not to get to Graphic but on males theres a scar underneath scrodem where the vaginal has closed up and a developed penis was formed during pregnancy. You cant wake up one day and say I’m goona be transgender.

There are gay transgenders heterosexual transgenders bisexual a sexual and the list goes on. There shouldn’t just be a label on every thing . We all humans theres no wrong way or right way to have sex and to love .
