Mayor Bach - Issue proclamation for Colorado Springs PrideFest


Colorado's second-largest city (population 380,000), Colorado Springs is just an hour or so south of Denver and has a quite conservative reputation compared with the state capital and many other parts of the state. Indeed, this city edging the Rockies is home to a number of conservative religious and political groups, including the infamously homophobic Focus on the Family and the New Life Church. 

The city's pride Center is hosting Colorado Springs Gay Pride it's 21st anniversay on Saturday and Sunday, July 16 and 17, 2011. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette The Mayor has rejected to issue a PrideFest Proclamation!-
