Happy Almost Weekend Everyone!
May is upon us, and with that means Gay Pride season is almost here. With events lining up back-to-back now is the time to mark those calendars to ensure that you don’t miss out on the fun.

Speaking of Gay Pride – BGHV is looking for a flatbed that we can borrow on which to create our float. Might you have a flatbed we can use? Do you know someone that does? If its attached to a business, we’re happy to make you the sponsor of our float if we can borrow it for a few weekends in May/June. If you’ve got a connection or two we should know about, please let us know.
In case you missed the Sunday Poughkeepsie Journal, they ran a great story about Gay Families here in the Hudson Valley. Give it a read online, and please be sure to let them know you appreciate their coverage by sending a letter to the Editor.
This weekend’s got some great things going on, so be sure to check out our calendar to stay a ‘mo in the know. And keep the event info coming – we got tons of great submissions this week! Drop us a line with your event info and we’ll put it online for all the community to see. Now get out of the house, enjoy the nice weather and have a big gay weekend!
