Sitting at a restaurant in Atlanta’s gay district or strolling through the park in Columbia during the South Carolina Pride Festival, gay and lesbian Charlestonians often wonder why we don’t have something similar in the Holy City. That’s not a swipe at our gay bars (we love our gay bars), but we need something more. Organizer Lynn Dugan has rallied a group of passionate volunteers to get a local event for the LGBT community. The energy right now is split between coordinating a solid event and a number of fundraisers to make sure the effort can pay for itself.
