As we face a global pandemic, we must ensure LGBTQ+ safety

The Board of Directors of Space Coast Pride has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Festival out of caution in keeping the community safe from the ongoing Pandemic.

Your incredible support is what allows us to do the work we do, including youth programs, food drives, annual events and even the support of other community groups.

We are planning to postpone the Rainbow Run 5K. Stay tuned for more information,

If you have any questions or would like to discuss these details please don’t hesitate to contact Justin Cercone, President, at president@spacecoastpride.org.

Once again, thank you for your support! Please be safe and respect and support others as we all continue to face this World Pandemic.

Gratefully,

The Board of Directors, Space Coast Pride

You don’t have to be LGBTQ for people to decide you do not conform to their personal binary standards——and face discrimination just the same. If you value having the ability to choose your own hairstyle and what colours you get to wear, then supporting equality is the way to go! This impacts all families!

Thank you! Sharing!!

I'll be there. I think it's totally BS how they have the meeting during school so teachers can't express their own opinions.

LAST CHANCE: Today is the last day to submit a public comment to the The Florida Boards of Medicine and Osteopathy. They're in the process of passing rules that restrict gender-affirming care. Medical decisions should be made between providers, young people, and their families — not politicians. But Governor DeSantis’s unrelenting transphobia and the state agencies he’s weaponized for his own political gain are putting the lives of trans youth at risk.

We need to SPEAK OUT against these proposed rules and protect trans care. Submit your comment: act.eqfl.org/a/bom-gender-affirming-care-custom

Official Statement From Rose Dynasty Foundation,

As the organizer of the Celebration of the Arts event, a fundraiser for a local charity, we were saddened and alarmed at the presence of Nazis protesting our event. The moment I was informed, we immediately took action on how to keep everyone safe. Lakeland Police Department showed up quickly to ensure the safety of our venue. They had several officers visibly patrolling the perimeter, making sure that our doors were locked and secured. The protesters, while holding Nazi flags, were yelling slurs at both adults and children while video recording, holding offensive signs and projecting inappropriate content onto the side of the building all while concealing their faces. The police did their very best and kept them away from our community.

This is an example of how the climate that we are in today has pushed extremists and given them a voice.

Rose Dynasty Foundation will continue to provide a safe space for all people - it's just a shame that these are the type of things we have to worry about. You are Loved, Accepted and Wanted! We are not going anywhere!
-Jason DeShazo/Momma Ashley Rose

Not even 5 days after this notice from the Department of Homeland Security was released. We really are under attack.

I don’t even know what to say. I’m disgusted and horrified. Nazis! The worst of humanity, right here. Dear God 😟

State Representative Randy Fine you have the right to not support the LGBTQ community. However, the rhetoric that you and other politicians spread, help to fuel this kind of hatred.

Thanks neo-gop

Cowards . Each one a coward!

Trumpism is POISON !!
