Tammy Duckworth: 🌈Today, Buffalo Grove will hold its first #Pride parade! Let me tell you why...

🌈Today, Buffalo Grove will hold its first #Pride parade! Let me tell you why itís so importantÖ Molly Pinta is a 7th grader from Buffalo Grove. Last year, Molly started her schoolís first gay-straight alliance, coming out to her friends and family a short while later. 1/

She & her family drove an hour to attend a #Pride parade that year, but she didnít want other LGBTQ+ youth to have to travel that far to celebrate who they are, so she got to work. Molly figured out the permitting & raised money by getting local businesses to become sponsors. 2/

Molly successfully organized Buffalo Groveís first-ever #Pride parade. Putting together such a special event is an incredible accomplishment for someone so young. But thatís Molly. I was lucky enough to meet her a few months ago & I couldnít be more proud. 3/3








Molly, you are a shero!

2. Boy did these tweets trigger some folks!

I'll have to be satisfied with pointing and laughing at them since I don't have a Twitter account to do so online.
