First ever Pride Day held in Lead

Note: The article is about a week old, but if an event like this can happen in a western South Dakota town with a population of about 3,000 then we are winning the battle for the hearts and minds of many in this country

LEAD — The newly formed Lead-Deadwood High School Democrats hosted Lead’s first ever Pride Day celebration at Manuel Brothers Park Sunday.

“We’re just designed to bring the community together in what ever way possible, also encouraging political activism,” said Daniel Egemo, chairman of the Lead-Deadwood High School Democrats. “So getting people out to vote, obviously, but also making sure people feel comfortable within their own beliefs.”

Egemo, who will be a senior at Lead-Deadwood High School this year, said that the group of about 10 to 15 students started in April and in May held their first fundraiser bringing in nearly $500.

“It was a dinner that we hosted, and it was totally donation based so there was definitely a lot of interest in people coming out and donating to us,” he said.

After the fundraiser, the group decided they wanted to host a Pride Day event.
