ROCHESTER, Minn. - On the sidewalk in front of the Rochester Public Library, the library hosted a "Celebrate Pride" event.
People had the opportunity to participate in family-friendly activities such as adding to a community Pride mural, creating paper unicorn horns, and checking out LGBTQ books.
Rochester mom of 5 Mandee Gary brought her kids to the event.
"Parents are the ones to tell kids how to treat people. If you don't show kids what is considered normal, then they will not know. If you tell them that something is wrong, then that's how they'll take it," explains Gary. "So if they're here, and they're participating in activities that are fun for them and they see people together that may be same-sex couples, then they'll know that that's okay."
