For the fourth year, villagers may celebrate local diversity with a series of events during the 2015 Yellow Springs Pride weekend, which honors the local LGBTQ community.

“We want people to come together to honor being themselves and being accepted in Yellow Springs,” organizer Ann Simonson said this week.

On Friday, June 26, The Winds Cafe will host an evening of special Pride drinks, along with the regular menu, from 4 to 10 p.m. Also on Friday, the Little Art Theatre will show Pride-related films, including The Birdcage at 4 p.m., Brokeback Mountain at 7 and Appropriate Behavior at 9:40.

Events continue on Saturday, June 27, with a family picnic at John Bryan Community Center at 11:30 — participants should bring a dish to share. Tracy Walker will perform at noon, and vendors, speakers and original music will continue throughout the afternoon. Rev. Aaron Saari of the First Presbyterian Church will deliver the keynote address at 4 p.m.and interested persons will begin assembling at 4:30 for the sidewalk parade downtown, which will take place at 5 p.m.

That evening, a documentary on the Dayton-based Rubi Girls will be shown at 6 at the Little Art, with questions following. The group will perform at Peach’s Grill that night at 10 p.m., preceded by the Soul Fire Tribe at 8:30.
