Congregation Beth Am will be in the Tampa Pride Parade!
On Saturday, March 28th, Congregation Beth Am gets to be a small part of a big moment in history.
We all know that one of the great changes in our lifetime has been the advancement of acceptance and equality for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community. And now, for the first time in many years, Tampa will be holding a Pride Parade. LGBT people and their allies will be joining together to celebrate who they are, and to help move the cause even further forward.
Congregation Beth Am is honored to be one of the participants in the parade. Reform Judaism has long been a vocal force behind the advancement of LGBT rights, and CBA is committed to welcoming everyone into our community, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Marching in Pride is just one of the ways that we get to show our love and support for our friends and family members who felt excluded from our community for too long.
Anyone who wants to participate is welcome to join us for services at 9:00 am that morning, and then head down to the parade and street festival. Tampa Pride is a Family & Pet friendly event! Bring your pup or bring your kids.
T-Shirts will be available for Beth Am members. Contact Cathy Friedman asap to reserve your size! For more information about the parade, please go to the Tampa Pride website.
