Pagan Pride DayIt 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!
