Thousands of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people and their supporters will gather Saturday morning and afternoon for Denver's 32nd annual Pride Fest.

Previous events have drawn up to 200-thousand people to the Civic Center.

It commemorates the launch of the modern gay-rights movement during New York's Stonewall Riots in 1969.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and his predecessor, Wellington Webb, have been supporters of gay rights and sponsors say it is one of the ten largest in the nation.

    The more gay people come out of the closet, and march in things like gay pride parades, get involved in politics, etc, the more the middle of the road fence sitters, both religious and non-religious, will realize how homophobia is one of the terrible shames of our society. Forget the religious fascists - e.g. much of the southern right wing churches, who just need someone new to hate, now that African Americans have been able to break free of slavery's successor, Jim Crow, not that its all fixed yet. And remember from a str8 married person who attended gay pride in Milwaukee (we just happened to be visiting our daughter that weekend), as well as Baltimore and DC where we live in the metro area, you can have a good time, and spend your visit asking yourself how you can get involved in politics to further ending the shame of homophobia in America
