The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
Last Saturday, July 30th, Blount Pride hosted a Pride Festival at the Jack Greene Park in Maryville, Tennessee that featured a Rainbow and Drag Queen story time for children, followed later by “educational and connection-building activities” led by a local high school teacher.
The city of Maryville arranged for a designated area for protesters with their own parking, away from the festival attendees and a group of Christian Tennesseans showed up to demonstrate.
According to our source, a worship leader and a pastor were in attendance.
Several people were also in attendance that joined in prayer and the singing of worship songs.
Others carried signs, including one that said, “GROOMERS ARE EVIL”.
Our source snapped a photo of their view of the event from their designated protest area.
In one of our previous stories regarding the event, we used an image that was shared by Libs of TikTok.
One of our readers found the full video clip that can be viewed here.
Following the event, Blount Pride indicated they will soon start planning next year’s event and is seeking donations to make that happen.
