Fresh off of being named the “Activist of the Year” at Baltimore Pride, Sharon Brackett will be the principal speaker at Frederick Pride on Saturday. Brackett, a Laurel, Md. resident, will discuss transgender issues.

In 2010, Brackett was selected by Washington SmartCEO Magazine as one of Washington’s Smart100 CEOs for 2010 and then again, after transition, in 2011. She is a founder of Gender Rights Maryland, a trans civil rights organization, and serves as its board chair.

The festival takes place from 12-6 p.m. at Carroll Creek Park in the downtown area of Frederick.
