Pride Festival Celebrates Victories, but Challenges Remain

Chris Hartman is standing on a rainbow float being pulled by a white Chevy Tahoe. Pulling the megaphone up to his mouth, he yells to the thousands gathered for the Kentuckiana Pride Parade."Friends, give it up for elected officials who voted for Fairness!" yelled Hartman, standing next to those who voted for anti-discrimination legislation in 1999. "And the Fairness Campaign co-founders! And give it up for yourselves for coming out to celebrate pride!"The Pride Foundation chose Hartman to be the grand marshall of the parade, which serves as an annual celebration for the LGBT community.“So many of us have grown up together that this is really like a family reunion. We look forward to this day every year," said Darren Morgen, who is part of the Pride Foundation. “Chris Hartman, he’s doing a good job representing those people not necessarily receiving equality.”
