South Carolina Gay PrideExuberance, a statue of a woman at the entrance of Barnet Park, stands with her head thrown back in joy. On Saturday, she held two bunches of rainbow-colored balloons as Upstate Pride SC, a local nonprofit promoting equality and respect for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, held its third annual festival there.

Brandi Dice held a rainbow banner as she prepared to join two other marchers holding state and American flags for the walk downtown. Police estimated about 2,000 people attended the event.

“I think everyone should have equal rights,” said Dice, whose partner, Kristi Ward, is president of PFLAG Spartanburg. “We’re all in this world as one, and we might as well get along.”

Author: , May 16th, 2011

Charleston PrideCharleston Pride Festival Grand Marshall “Miss Brooke Collins,” an entertainment icon in the Southeast’s gay community since 1985, drew fans to the stage at Riverfront Park in North Charleston on Saturday. As he lip-synched three songs, including “It’s Raining Men,” fans instantaneously started shoving dollar bills into the drag queen’s hands.

In just one year since the first Charleston Pride Festival, leaders in the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community say that momentum for change and acceptance is building in the Lowcountry.

The three-day celebration, sponsored by Absolut Vodka, concluded Saturday in North Charleston with a Pride Parade and Rally in the morning, a festival at Riverfront Park in the afternoon and the “Absolutly Born This Way” after party at 10 Storehouse Row in the evening.
