Gay Pride Day Set for Saturday at Westport's Unitarian Church
Westport's Unitarian Church will be the setting Saturday for the third annual Fairfield County Gay Pride event sponsored by Fairfield County’s Triangle Community Center.
The Norwalk-based group is in its 13th year serving the Fairfield County lesbian/gay/bi-sexual/transgendered community.
Last year’s event drew more than 700 people. With recent intense media coverage of the same-sex marriage debate, the group decreed this year's Pride theme to be "Our Time is Now."
Speakers at the Saturday event will include Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy, Congressman Chris Shays, State Sen. Andrew MacDonald, State Sen. Bill Finch, State Rep. Bob Duff, and Westport First Selectwoman Diane G. Farrell.
There will also be live music, children’s entertainment, table vendors, food, volleyball games, and, for the first time, a Pride dog show. The event will be held rain or shine.
