Lambda shows its pride at St. Petersburg events
The Lambda Legal Society at Stetson participated in the annual St. Petersburg LGBT Pride Parade, on June 27 in St. Petersburg. The weekend parade followed the Supreme Court’s historic decision regarding gay marriage on June 26.
Stetson students participating in the parade event shared their perspectives.
“It’s Fantastic,” said 2L Nathan Perry. “Everyone is smiling, everyone is colorful and the weather is perfect for a celebration. It’s like God wanted this to happen.”
“This is pretty phenomenal,” said 2L Christina Hartman. “Stetson has been a big part of this parade for many years and so the fact that we can be here after such a historic decision has come down is not only great for Stetson but for the community as well.”
The LGBT Pride Parade, spanning the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood and Grand Central District in St. Petersburg, featured more than 150 organizations and businesses supporting and celebrating the Tampa Bay LGBT community.
The parade is one of the largest of its kind in Florida, drawing more than 200,000 people.
Stetson’s Lambda also offered tickets to Pride Night during the Rays v. White Sox baseball game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on June 12 to all members of the Stetson community.
