Inaugural gay pride event planned for Westminster on July 7th, 2018

Inaugural gay pride event planned for Westminster on July 7th,
2018 By Kevin Dayhoff

Westminster, Md. June 4, 2018 - - After months of meetings
and preparations, a group of Carroll County citizens have formed to develop
plans to hold an inaugural gay pride event, The Westminster Pride Festival, in
Westminster. The newly formed Westminster Pride Planning Committee is a
consortium of civic, business, nonprofit, and church leaders who have joined
together with community leaders and members of the LGBTQ+ community and their
allies.
 
The planned event, The Westminster Pride Festival is
believed to be the first of its kind in our community. It will take place on
July 7, 2018 from noon to 5 p.m. in the 200 block of East Main Street, between
Church and Court Streets. Permits for the event have been issued from the City
of Westminster.

All
proceeds from The Westminster Pride Festival will be donated to the Westminster
Pride Festival Fund, which is a fund of the Community Foundation of Carroll
County. The fund is the very first LGBTQ+ fund at the Community Foundation with
a specific focus on the LGBTQ+ community.

According to information from the planning committee, The
Westminster Pride Festival seeks to raise the visibility of the LGBTQ+
community in Westminster and Carroll County. “It is time we showed our pride in
our community,” said Jason Garber, who along with his husband Lance Garber have
been planning this event with a core group of dedicated volunteers.

“We have made Westminster and Carroll County our home,” said
Garber, a McDaniel graduate and former president of McDaniel chapter of Allies.
“My husband and I enjoy living in this very close knit and accepting community,
and we want to celebrate Pride Month with all the friends, family and allies we
have.”

‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month’ - LGBT
Pride Month is currently celebrated annually in the month of June to honor the
1969 Stonewall Inn civil unrest in New York City, otherwise known as the
“Stonewall Riots,” that took place following a police raid on the Stonewall
Inn, a gay bar at 43 Christopher Street, in Manhattan. In subsequent years,
marches, parades, festivals, and events have been scheduled in the spring to
shed additional light on the civil rights of the gay and lesbian community.

According to various media accounts, ever since the initial Christopher
Street Liberation Day on June 28, 1970 marked the first anniversary of the
Stonewall riots, the participants have encountered very little resistance from
onlookers.

This year, in Carroll County, it was decided by the
organizing committee that in order to be respectful of other Pride events that
are taking place in Baltimore, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Frederick, MD,
The Westminster Pride Festival wanted to kick off its inaugural year with no
calendar conflicts. “People do generally celebrate pride with more than one festival,
especially on the east coast where it is easy to make it to various pride parades
and festivals.” said Garber.

Founding sponsors of The Westminster Pride Festival include
Random House Penguin, MerMaids, and Birdie’s Café. The committee is made up of
over twenty volunteers, who have dedicated many hours to ensure the success of
this event.

The mission of the Westminster Pride Festival, according to
the planning committee, is to assure the success of a yearly festival that includes
information, support, music, art, food and overall acceptance and solidarity
within the LGBTQ+ community, their allies and the Carroll County community.

According to the planning committee, The Westminster Pride
Festival looks forward to creating a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community to
express and affirm themselves, increase visibility and foster respect for those
who want to express their own sexual and gender identity.

“We endeavor to make this a yearly event that will
ultimately lead to scholarships for the education of LGBTQ+ students,” said
Sherri Hosfeld-Joseph, owner of Birdie’s Café and founding member of the
Westminster Pride Festival. “This is something our community is clearly longing
for… We look forward to an outpouring of support from our community in support
of our LGBTQ+ friends, family members and loved ones.”

Vendors will include local restaurants including Maggie’s,
Bud’s at Silver Run, The Food Chick, Starry Night Bakery and many others.

Entertainment will be provided by local bands, Henry and the
Big Sleazy, The Flying Faders, Brinjal Band, The Dune Flowers, Faceplant and DJ
powerline.

Information on healthcare, counseling services, and
resources for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies will be available as well.

Families are encouraged to attend with children to enjoy
food, games, activities and a day full of information and affirmation.
Merchandise commemorating the inaugural event will be for sale on the planning
committee’s website as well as the day of the festival.

For more information on how
to become a vendor or sponsor, email the planning committee at

This just in from the latest edition of the SPJ newsletter



This just in from the latest edition of the SPJ newsletter

July 4, 2018

“And, in light of the tragedy at the Capital Gazette in
Annapolis, Maryland, let us not forget that the willingness to sign your name
to an article, a column, a masthead continues to require an uncommon bravery we
often take for granted.” -- Christopher Carosa, president of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, for USA Today.

WHAT'S HAPPENING

People are still talking about Annapolis after a man armed
with a shotgun and smoke grenades stormed into the newsroom of a community
newspaper chain in Maryland’s capital on Thursday afternoon, killing five staff members, injuring two others. It
prompted law enforcement agencies across the country to provide protection at
the headquarters of media organizations.

You can help honor the memories of the Capital Gazette
journalists by acknowledging a moment of silence. At 2:33 p.m. EDT Thursday,
SPJ will join journalism groups and newsrooms around the globe in a moment of
silence to honor the five employees who were killed.

To help newsrooms protect their journalists, ASNE and APME
have created a tip sheet explaining how to react if an aggressor enters the building.

In another act of violence against a journalist, Crime
Reporter José Guadalupe Chan Dzib, who was murdered Friday night in Quintana Roo, had been threatened
but was not provided with official protection, the United Nations Office
of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico (OHCHR) revealed.

High school educators across the country have been clamping
down on students who publish articles on protests, sexuality, and other
hot-button issues. The killing of the opinion piece on the National School
Walkout protest was the third instance of conflict between John Burdett, the
principal of Prosper High School in Prosper, Texas, and the school’s news
publication, Eagle Nation Online.

CafePress, an online retailer, was in hot water for selling T-shirts emblazoned with the
phrase “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.” CafePress pulled the
shirts soon after the outcry began, but then the question shifted to why it
carried them in the first place. The message has been seen on t-shirts at Trump rallies for almost two years. But the fury over
the message has increased since last week, when five journalists were killed in
a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in
Annapolis, Maryland.

CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta has appeared in
at least one advertisement for his brother’s Democratic congressional campaign,
raising questions about his objectivity in reporting on the
president’s health. At the very least, experts say, it creates the perception
of bias. (And we all know what the SPJ Code of Ethics says about that.)

The Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times killed 21 people

The Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times killed 21
people

In its recent newsletter, the Society of Professional Journalists
has taken the opportunity to remind us about the Oct. 1, 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times building.

The 1910 bombing of the Los Angeles Times has been the
subject of books and film. By CAROLINA A. MIRANDA SEP 22, 2017 http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/miranda/la-et-cam-esotouric-los-angeles-times-bombing-20170922-story.html

The weapon: 16 sticks of dynamite and a windup alarm clock.

The target: The old Los Angeles Times building, an 1886
brick-and-granite edifice known as "the fortress," on Broadway and
First Street, across the street from where The Times is located today.

The bomber: J.B. McNamara, who was linked to an ironworkers
union that ordered the attack — part of a radical bombing campaign to go after
anti-union strongholds in the early days of the 20th century.

Twenty-one people died in the early hours of Oct. 1, 1910,
when the explosive device ripped an entire wing off The Times building. A night
editor and a telegraph operator were among the dead, and dozens of others were
wounded and maimed. A report published in The Times two days after the incident
described the scene as an "awful pit of death."

Heralded as the "crime of the century," the
bombing has been the subject of books (such as "Deadly
Times"
by Lew Irwin) and it has figured in documentaries (Peter Jones'
"Inventing L.A.: The Chandlers and Their Times").
