Durham Pride this year was an amazing and beautiful experience. It was full of community support, greater than I have ever seen. So many local organizations, youth groups, churches of all denominations showed up and showed out in terrific numbers. There was love to be seen all day. After last year’s cancellation catastrophe. I was in total awe of the huge turnout. Durham made a strong showing of unity for our community. For the very first time in my memory, there was no protesters dragging a cross and condemning the participants and attacking the mood of unity that Pride provides for so many.—Chrystal Kelly
