It may only be the middle of Summer, but we’re updating the information for Pagan Pride Day (PPD) events around Florida. Are you looking to participate in Pagan Pride Day events in your area, but aren’t sure when or where they might be? Or are you planning to attend a PPD event and want to know if members of EMLC will be there so that you can meet us and see if you want to join our Local Council (here’s a hint – you absolutely do!) We will be keeping this page up to date with PPD events around Florida, and noting which ones will have EMLC’ers attending. Keep checking back as we will add more events as we hear about them!

Can you have a Pagan Pride day closer to Fort Myers, Florida? I bet there would be plenty of people to come to it.. blessed be..
Melyssa, EMLC itself doesn’t host any Pagan Pride Day events, but we’re always on the look-out for being able to connect people with PPD events in their area. Often there’s a CUUPS chapter that is involved. You might want to check out the CUUPS Ft Myers page for any possible PPD events they are hosting: http://cuupsfm.org/
