Military Memorial - Kansas City Gay Pride - 2012
9:15 am-11:00 am
Join us at the Liberty Memorial where we will join in celebrating the lives of our fallen soldiers.
With the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, this year will be even more poignant and memorable because we would ask that anyone associated with a family member, or have been active in the military wear their rainbow colors with PRIDE.

Film: The Right to Love - Kansas City Gay Pride - 2012
7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Join us at The Tivoli Cinemas at 7:00pm for The Right to Love - An American Family, a film which might change the minds of some doubters.
While the passionate debate over the legitimacy of Marriage Equality in the United States rages on, the LGBT community continues to fight for their slice of the American dream. Powered by media, religion and influential anti-gay organizations, the civil rights of marriage continues to be held out of reach for many LGBT citizens.
This film chronicles one story of courage born out of the highly publicized, controversial Prop 8 2008 election results in California. A Californian married gay couple and their two adopted children fight back against discrimination, Ignorance and hate through home videos posted on their YouTube channel, Gay Family Values.
As they pursue their American Dream, the opposing political, social and religious opinions that pervade society attempt to strip it from them.
