Proud to be at Pride?

Proud to be at Pride?

It’s just been Manchester Pride this weekend and, for the forth year running, I attended the Big Weekend event.  This, in itself, is a contentious issue for some people.  I get that.  Paying to get into the Village to then have some venues charging an entry fee as well doesn’t tend to go down so well.  A lot of public resources go into policing pride and the majority of the money doesn’t go to…

Make Your Move is an effort from Missoula’s Intervention in Action Project, a group of community organizations dedicated to ending sexual violence. Its campaign’s goals are to: 1) Engage men and women as allies to prevent sexual violence by increasing awareness and education about the dynamics of sexual violence and 2) Encourage bystanders to foster healthy non-violent relationships and interrupt attitudes, language and actions that support sexual violence.
