AUDIO POSTCARD: Pageant Attendees Reflect On Coming PrideFest, Stonewall Anniversary

Trevor Hook/KBIA

Last Friday, a group of LGBTQ+ community members gathered in Columbia for the annual Mid-Missouri Pride Pageant.

The occasion also marked 50 years - to the day - since a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, widely regarded as a catalyst to the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement. 

KBIA caught up with these community members to hear their reflections on the anniversary and get a look forward to Mid-Missouri’s coming 2019 PrideFest.

This audio postcard features the voices of Steven Devore, Janet Davis, Latresa Steve and Shirley Moffit. Mid-Missouri PrideFest 2019 is slated for August 24.
