(Lander, Wyo.) – If the first ever Lander LGBTQ Pride Picnic was a success a couple weeks ago, so was yesterday evening’s Pro-Marriage Picnic. According to organizer Kevin Roberts, the official head count was 330.
About half way through the festivities Roberts told County10 that the turnout “exceeded expectations.” The atmosphere of the picnic late Sunday afternoon was relaxed and friendly. Roberts said he thought there were attendees from just about every church in the Lander area, and he was hearing gratefulness from those who came that he had organized the event.
A few local politicians and candidates were in attendance, including Del McOmie, Dominick Weigel and Colton Crane.
While some people ate, other tossed a frisbee around. Additionally, attendees were invited to sign a petition to protect the sanctity marriage in Wyoming. Discussion talking point sheets were also available for the those who wanted to learn more about how to discuss the matter with people who are for same-sex marriage.
