Proud to be an American

Ashley Brundage, president of the Tampa Bay Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and one of this year’s scheduled Grand Marshals of the upcoming 2015 St. Pete Pride Promenade became the first known transgender person to speak at McDill Air Force Base on Monday, June 15. The luncheon speaking engagement was the first pride event ever held at the military installation. The event is the result of a remarkable memo sent to all base commanders under Department of Defense stationary naming June as Pride month in the U.S. Armed Forces. Brundage speaking at McDill was one of many steps military installations took throughout the states to show LGBT support including hosting Pride festivals and flying the rainbow flag at various installations.
