You go girls!:

“We truly believe that this week, South Carolina is ‘so gay,’ ” said Ryan Wilson, president of SC Pride.

The annual South Carolina Pride Festival and Celebration is being held in Columbia this week. Events include a film festival, parade and appearance by entertainer and female impersonator RuPaul. Wilson said he expects about 7,000 to attend.

For the record, it seems like we always miss out on Pride. There’s always something going on somewhere. This year, we’re in town for family stuff. But don’t let that stop you. Get on up to Columbia and shake your rainbow.

Geez. So much going on. Here’s a link to the larger calendar. I’ll be posting about particular events later.
