Capital Pride Festival 2013

My meetup group, Capital Region Atheists & Agnostics, will be at this year’s Capital Pride Festival on June 9 at Washington Park in Albany. If you’re in the area, drop by and say hello! I’ve got a bunch of atheism and LGBT-related goodies to give away to people at the event.

Last year, we had a few delightful religious nutjobs protesting the Pride Parade. One of them was even someone I recognized from the Reason Rally! The kooks sure do get around.

P.S.: I’m still alive! I don’t update this nearly as much as I ought to because I’m getting most of my atheism-related frustration out on Reddit nowadays…

Enjoy!

I’ll be at the Reason Rally!

For a while now, I’ve basically been planning not to be at the Reason Rally. Not for lack of trying – I reserved a spot on a bus about a month and a half ago, but until there were enough reservations, the bus wasn’t actually confirmed. Seeing how up until yesterday we still needed 11 more people to sign up – and the rally is this Saturday – I had resigned myself to experiencing it vicariously through people who went.

But what do I see when I hop on Facebook today?

You’re damn right I like this! I reserved long enough ago that I got my ticket with the discount. $45 is getting me down to DC and back in style. Woot! Many thanks to CDHS!
