CFN Quote of the Week

Gazette staff June 29th, 2011

“It’s just people celebrating life and accepting everyone for who they are, accepting our diversity. That’s indicative of a ‘big-league city’— to celebrate our diversity that everyone is accepted here, everyone is protected here. It is a human rights issue.

“It’s also an economic development issue. As we recruit companies like Boeing and others, trust me, there are large amounts of gay and lesbian employees in all of these organizations, and they want to know that Oklahoma City celebrates its diversity, that Oklahoma is going to protect all of its population. And I think that OKC Pride is a very strong statement that we do celebrate our diversity.”

—Ward 2’s Ed Shadid, speaking about the 24th annual OKC Pride festival at the June 21 Oklahoma City Council meeting
