So this was one of my favorite River Days … partly because I got to share it with Leslie Harris and Mitch Michaels but mainly because it was such a wonderful vibe and brought so much positivity to the City of Aurora after what had been such a difficult year.
Free Mom Hugs is a group of affirming parents and allies who love the LGBTQ+ community unconditionally. They are dedicated to educating families, church, and civic leaders encouraging them to not only affirm the LGBTQ+ community but to celebrate them. The River has always been about love and music … so this seemed like a no brainer for us all to get involved in. Scott and Danielle mc’d the Pride Parade and Leslie, Mitch and I gave out hugs … We had some really lovely hugs that day and met some really lovely people. Yes there were a few haters there but Leslie Harris doesn’t suffer fools and she took care of them!
Hanging with some of my favorite people … Mitch Michaels and Lisa Jordon
Lovely Leslie Harris and one of her super fun friends
