AMHERST (POP. 9,500), MY HOMETOWN, COMES OUT OF THE CLOSET WITH ITS 1ST PRIDE PARADE EVER

Everyone pitched in for AMHERST, Nova Scotia’s & Cumberland County’s first-ever Gay Pride Parade on June 3/2017.

From my sister who lives in rural Nova Scotia: “They had a lot of support from various groups, unions, organizations, businesses in town and one that Mom would like I’m sure – the Anglican Church. The Y’s Men helped with traffic control. The Parade Marshall was transgendered – one of the hottest chicks in town according to the straight guys.”
