To kick off Pride month, gay Howard County Register of Wills Byron Macfarlane will host a rally on behalf of Democrat Courtney Watson, a candidate for county executive. LGBT individuals have been invited to show their support for Watson and her efforts to secure transgender rights in the county.
The event will take place on June 1 between 1-3 p.m. at Azul 17, 9400 Snowden River Parkway in Columbia. To RSVP, call Anna Mudd, 301-848-5173 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I’m thrilled to be joining her to celebrate LGBT Pride Month with colleagues in government and a host of community leaders,” Macfarlane told the Blade. Watson’s opponent is Republican Allan H. Kittleman whom many LGBT activists regard as a champion of marriage equality.
