A group of Soldotna residents are planning a counter rally to affirm the traditional Judeo-Christian view of human sexuality and marriage during the Soldotna Pride March on June 17.
The Pride march will begin at 5:45 p.m. from the Soldotna Sports Complex (538 Arena Ave.) to Soldotna Creek Park (44149 Sterling Highway). Following the march LGBTQ activists will hold a Pride picnic that includes drag queen performers. The event is set to conclude at 10 p.m.
The counter rally aims to give witness to God’s vision for marriage and love. Participants are encouraged to bring banners and signage reaffirming the traditional view of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
Counter rally participants will gather at the Funny River, K-Beach traffic light around 5:30 p.m. and relocated to the entrance of Soldotna Creek Park.
All residents who wish to affirm this traditional view of human sexuality and marriage are encouraged to attend.
