Northhampton Pride 2013: ‘Our Journey is Not Complete’

On Monday, April 29th, 2013

pride 2012As reported by Masslive.com on Sunday, the 32nd Annual Pride March kicks off in Northampton, MA on May 4. The pride events in Northampton usually kick off the pride season around the country. Last year the events were inspired by President Barack Obama’s historic declaration supporting same-sex marriage and this year, through much progress, the theme will be “Our Journey is Not Complete.”

This year’s events will kick off with Mayor David Narkewicz’s customary reading of a proclamation dedicating the day to gay rights in the city and will feature a number of religious, political and inspirational speakers and its usual lineup of music, entertainment and fun for the entire family.

The Pride march will begin on Bridge Street and continue down Main Street and through downtown before ending with events at the Three County Fairgrounds where scheduled entertainment will include Karen Grenier who is a regular performer in Provincetown. Many local businesses, churches, organizations and school groups are expected to march in this year’s parade.

The parade will begin at noon and events are expected to continue until 5:30 p.m.

As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
