This weekend men and women alike will visit the Central Park Fountain Plaza in Warsaw, pickets in hand, to support a cause they are passionate about. Unlike other causes however, those in attendance will not be disputing a point, but promoting acceptance of all.
Celebrating its second year, the Warsaw Diversity Rally will be hosted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will feature a variety of speakers promoting understanding of those from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life. From religious diversity to acceptance of LGBT and those with body modifications, diversity will be celebrated for all.
Speakers include: Brittany Kusserow, religious diversity; Chris Blackshire-Evansky and Christina Evansky, LGBT; Alisha McDonough and Kaylee Denney, body modification and physical appearance; Steve Possell, socioeconomic issues; Lachelle Tullis, labels; Devendra Gorhe, culture and faith.
Guests will also be able to enjoy performances from area performers also seeking to promote diversity. Performances will be provided by the Warsaw Community High School Gay Straight Alliance Group, Marena Moonflower and Hans and Brittany Kusserow. Organizers note food vendors will not be available at the event.
The rally will conclude with a celebration march around downtown Warsaw from 12:30 p.m. until 1 p.m. The public is welcome to attend this peaceful event that celebrates all different aspects of diversity.
