Happy Pride to Cidiot listeners. We have much to celebrate, remember, and yes, still fight for. Please double-check details and dates in case I got anything wrong or the organizer changes the plan. And please be careful indoors and in crowds (i.e., mask, distancing). There’s still a dangerous pandemic going on.
