Although the Open Door Pride Festival was canceled this year, the sponsoring organization did present a special award this past Saturday in Sturgeon Bay. Martin Park was the setting for the 2020 Sandy Brown Award to Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP). Cathy Grier, the founder of Open Door Pride, says TAP exemplified their mission of celebrating our diversity with inclusion for all.
Establishing the first PFLAG chapter in Door County, Brown, the first recipient now has her name bestowed on the award. Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward formally declared June Open Pride Month with a Pride Flag flying over Martin Park. Plans are to hold the Open Door Pride Festival on Saturday, June 26, next year.
