An increase in over 100 participants from last year, the Gay 5K promotes healthy activities for the community. The Gay 5K, “is a healthy activity that is fun and draws different people from the community,” says Justin Azzarella, Buffalo Pride Volunteer Organizer. “About half of the people here are straight allies that want to show their support for the LGBT community.”
The winner of the 2014 Buffalo Pride Gay 5K was Robert McMillan, 25, from Chattanooga, TN. He is a straight ally and has been running races since he was 12 years old.
The Buffalo Pride Festival continues this week with several events. Friday, May 30, is the Chroma Art Opening. Saturday, May 31, is the Dyke March and Allen Street Festival. Then, the finale on Sunday, June 1, with the Pride Parade and Pride Festival at Canalside. For more information on these events, visit www.buffalopridefestival.com.
