Pride and Prejudice in Brevard
Thursday, October 12, 2017, 06:30pm - 09:00pm

Please  join us for our SECOND Thursday event, October 12th, 2017 at the Front Street Civic Center -- 2205 Front St., Melbourne, FL 32901.  We respond to the Florida Today challenge to take a closer look at the complex and virulent prejudice against lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people across our planet -- and right here on the Space Coast. Some bias is innocent enough, yet many Americans still suffer from a deep ignorance of, and alienation from, their LGBT neighbors. Please come to learn about these issues and support our LGBT community!

It seems like only yesterday that the Supreme Court finally recognized marriage equality. Sadly, the highest court in our country cannot quench the fires of hatred that still linger in the minds of people that feel threatened by change.  State laws that legitimize discrimination against LGBT people persist.  "Wedding Cake Laws" and "Bathroom Bills" are bad enough, but President Trump's ignorant ban on transgender military enlistment has just thrown fuel on those fires of hate.

Florida Today's Editor, Bob Gabordi, challenged our community to examine and face these issues, and that's what we will do.  Please join us, and join the discussion!
