Here is the content of yesterday's proclamation:
WHEREAS, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people across the nation celebrate pride in their culture and community in the month of June; and
WHEREAS, the whole community is strengthened and enhanced through the contributions of all its diverse citizens; and
WHEREAS, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in Johnson County will celebrate Pride Month in June with a parade and festival on June 15, 2013.
NOW, THEREFORE, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors, do hereby proclaim the month of June 2013 to be:
and encourage Johnson County residents to recognize the many contributions that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals and communities have made to our County.
I know that some people are upset that this wasn't a unanimous vote. For better or worse, the BOS has been torn on this type of resolution in the past. It's important to note that the resolution passed.
