Re: Showing their true colours (June 6). Never mind my dissatisfaction with the Pride parade's occurrence on the Christian day of worship. My strongest objection is to the patently promotional and demonstrably false statement that was your story's final paragraph: "The family friendly event welcomed kids in strollers and little dogs on leashes. With the temperature hovering in the low teens, there were no scantily clad drag queens and just one young woman wearing a bikini and rainbow body paint."
On the same page, just to the right of this final paragraph, was a full-colour picture of a pair of drag queens, one of whom turned to the camera in an intentional display of as much skin and body hair as possible.
Whether other parents consider such an event to be appropriate for their children is not my business, necessarily. I would simply ask that the Winnipeg Free Press provide more factual and accurate reporting and less advocacy for this or any other so-called event.
