Pridefest coverage was disappointing

Thank you for your coverage on our Rochester PrideFest. However, I do have a few comments to make on the limited coverage.

The article did not mention this was our 11th year celebrating Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender Pride, as well as not mentioning the reason we celebrate.

It did not mention Mayor Brede was present and read a proclamation proclaiming the weekend GLBT Pride Week End in the city of Rochester and Rep. Tina Leibling entertained us playing her guitar and singing.

It failed to mention The Friend of the Family award was given to People of Hope Church for its support to the GLBT community and to the Rev. Gary Drier for his support of the GLBT community, nor did it mention the awards given to three people for their advocacy in the GLBT community.

The coverage was disappointing since we do have a long history of 28 years in the community.
