‘LGBT Days’ is officially in motion in Cathedral City. The city hosted a kickoff celebration Friday evening in downtown that honored the city’s LGBT community and diversity.
The ‘LGBT Days’ weekend is dedicated to celebrating the lives, history, and accomplishments of the LGBT community.
“There is the first ever LGBTQ veteran memorial here in the community and this year the city said ‘we want you to make that memorial in the state record,'” said Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia.
Garcia carried that legislation to Sacramento.
Many of the attendees of Friday’s event shared pride in a weekend of acceptance.
“You’re supported in every way, people aren’t looking at each other strange,” said Gus Zozayn, a Cathedral City resident.
“It’s a real, real amazing feeling to feel so supported with who I am as a person in a community that feels and knows the same way of the hardships and struggles and the same common purpose of just wanting to be accepted in a community,” said Jonathan Mugridge, a Palm Springs resident.
Cathedral City is hosting free events all weekend long. For more information on all this weekend’s events, click here.
