Pride season is here and I wanted to send you, a personal note to invite you to join our team for some really important outreach we're doing this weekend at St. Pete Pride. Here's the plan:
I know you've seen the headlines about how Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, who is running for Governor, paid the notorious homophobe George Rekers $120,000 to testify in favor of Florida's shameful adoption ban. Then Rekers got caught traveling with a male prostitute.
Well, we want to demand McCollum apologize for hiring Rekers and pay back the wasted money.
We're trying to build a huge team of Pride volunteers to collect 2,000 signatures to send to Bill McCollum. Can you be on our Pride Team? Every one of our pride volunteers will receive an Equality Florida T-shirt!
St. Pete Pride is being held this Saturday, June 26th. Please sign up for the team by clicking here: http://eqfl.org/pride/stpete/
Also- we're kicking off Pride on Friday, June 25th, with a volunteer and member appreciation party at the home of Joe Morrissey & Mark Montgomery (845 16th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL 33704). Please join us on the eve of St. Pete Pride for a relaxed BBQ as our way of saying thanks for your support! Everyone is welcome. You can RSVP by clicking here: http://eqfl.org/pride/stpete/
Thanks again for being such a strong advocate - I hope we get to work together at Pride!
