High On Pride: The Farm Presents Glitter (21+)

2015 has been a turning point for the LGBTQ community. In June, same sex marriage was made legal by the Supreme Court in all 50 states. This alone was one of the most extensive decisions for LGBTQ rights to date. In addition, there have been progressive changes made in South America, Europe, Mexico and Africa. The momentum created from these changes fuels us to continue to express, educate and advocate the LGBTQ movement.

Although we have a long way to go, we are making great progress. Moving forward, we must stand together and fight for our rights and the rights of all humans. The right to be respected. The right to be who you are without fear or prejudice. The right to express our love freely and openly. Now is the time that we must take this momentum and push forward towards full equality. We must stand tall and proud because together our voices are stronger and have more impact for change.

Pride Fest 2015 is an event to celebrate all that has been accomplished with the LGBTQ community, not just this year, but throughout history. It's a time to be around others who believe in being yourself and fighting for what matters. It's a time to recognize all of those that have fought for equal rights throughout history. It's a time to love one another and share our passion for progress and education.

For this year's Pride Fest we plan to celebrate full force! The Farm will be in attendance with our friend The OZ Box photo booth, so be sure to come by, bring your friends and make some silly memories. We will also be debuting our Pride Cow tank tops, so don't miss out on grabbing one before they're gone.

The Farm is beyond excited to a part of such an exciting time in our history. Out Boulder has been an important part of the community since 1992, providing a safe space for people to be who they are. We are honored to be able to show our support and respect at this year's Pride Fest. Thank you for letting us partake in the festivities. Now let's get high on pride!

Pat Donohue from "Prairie Home Companion"

Grammy winning fingerpicker Pat Donohue's devotion to acoustic guitar has made him an American standard, as he echoes the tones of Robert Johnson, Charlie Parker, Merle Travis or Muddy Waters. 

After wrapping up almost twenty successful years as the guitarist and songwriter on "A Prairie Home Companion" on NPR, Pat now turns to full time concert touring, presenting master guitar workshops and attending prestigious music camps.

Now he comes to Longmont as part of his national tour on Saturday, August 22nd! You can see Pat at Jensen Guitars in Longmont from 7-9 PM. More information here: http://outboulder.org/content/pat-donohue-live-jensen-guitars
