 Lexmaton Pride Week Planning Surging Ahead
by Ann Olliges
It is an exciting time for the gay community. With the recent overturn of Kentucky’s sodomy
law, the new presidential administration and all the new services/organizations which have
emerged, Lexington is becoming a better place to live for lesBigay people. Included in this
change is the formation of the Gay/Lesbian Services Network. Dynamic individuals
representing most of Lexington’s services/organizations have been meeting since November
to prepare for Lexington’s 1993 Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Pride Celebration. Various events
have been planned to appeal to our diverse community.
If you’ve ever thought about getting involved in our community, now is the time! Pride
Week will not be the same without your participation. Support is needed in all aspects of
production including donations of time and money. Pick an area of interest below and call
the contact person! Or, call Ann Olliges, Pride Week Coordinator, at 266—6568. One person
can make a difference. Come create the celebration!
