Hi everyone,

This evening (June 8) is the time to join with Albuquerque Pride and other members of the GLBT community for the commemorative walk and the dedication (groundbreaking) of a GLBT memorial as part of the Arts in the Park city project at Morningside Park.

Morningside Park was one of the first places Pride was held back in the 1970's and is recognized as the birthplace of Pride here in Albuquerque. Walkers will come from places where Pride started or ended over the years and arrive at Morningside park by 8:00pm. There will be a powerful candlelight vigil and a look back and forward at the GLBT Community. Reception to follow. The city of Albuqeurque Arts in the Park project worked with Pride to create the memorial.

If you want to be part of the commemorative walk from prior years Pride Parade sites to Morningside Park be at the park at 6:30PM. (Rides will take you to the start sites.)

If you just want to be present at the dedication and vigil it starts at the park at 8:00 PM.

Remember it's our history we talking about.

Hope to see you there.
