Notes

Organized by the Democratic Women of McDonough County.
"We seek to provide a safe space for all attendees to enjoy the freedoms all should enjoy with gender expression/gender identity until such time that every space is made safe and validating for all members of our community.
We pledge our support and allyship to that end, that all may live, work, play, and visit here, free from being targeted by those individuals who have yet to address their own issues. Those who project homophobia, transphobia, and ignorance onto others in our county will be confronted and held accountable with real-world consequences.
We will no longer silently tolerate ignorance which contributes to a toxic culture which puts members of the LGBTQIA at risk."
