Even though it (might) not be raining, the colors of the rainbow are shining particularly bright this weekend. It is the last weekend of Charleston Pride Week, and we are pulling our tutu’s and rainbow tights out of the closet and going big for these last few days. Come out, show your pride, and don’t plan on going home because there’s always an after-party.
