P.K. Weiss, President of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg, South Carolina is a vocal advocate for LGBT equality in her community. She has been working on LGBT Pride Day in Spartanburg, scheduled for June 4th. Recently, Upstate Pride SC asked the Mayor and the County Council to offer a proclamation in honor of the festivities, but the group was abruptly dismissed by the chair of the County Council.

Weiss, a heterosexual mother of four and former president of Upstate Pride SC, told the local news: “There was no salutation, no closing, no thank you for the invitation. Just ‘no,’ and I thought that was rude and dismissive.”

“Moral support from people with authority is important. It shows your efforts aren’t in vain,” she added.

Thank you, P.K., for possessing the moral authority that is absent in some of your elected leaders. You are truly standing on the side of love!

    Mayor White, mayor of the CITY of Spartanburg, SC did sign a proclamation making June 4, 2011 LGBT day in the city. This is the second year in a row that he stood on the side of love in the face of many homophobic constituents in his city. So, while the COUNTY was dismissive, Mayor White stood with us. Thank you, Mayor White!
