Open Door Pride holds online celebration

A rainy Saturday didn’t stop the city of Sturgeon Bay from getting prideful. Open Door Pride held its annual festival online. The group was presented with a proclamation from elected officials on the Sturgeon Bay Common Council. Representing the council were Dan Williams, Spencer Gustafson, Seth Wiederanders, and Helen Bacon. Representative Joel Kitchens also spoke at the event, commending Open Door Pride for their focus on acceptance. 

 

 

Other speakers and performers also took the stage. Along with the virtual ceremony, there was a ribbon project display at Martin Park where people could stop by during the day. There they could write what they are proud of on ribbons. Chair of Open Door Pride Cathy Grier discussed the definition of pride.

 

 

Grier and others applauded the progress that’s been made with acceptance towards the LGBTQIA+ Community in recent years. Grier also acknowledged the strides she plans to make in the future. 

 

 

The festival can be found on the Open Door Pride Facebook page.
