Thanks for writing about Pride


To the editor:

I want to thank you for the editorial you wrote regarding Gay Pride (Saturday, June 15, 2024, issue of the West Plains Gazette). My neighbor brought it to my attention this morning. She said it brought her to tears and felt I would appreciate your thoughts.

I moved here 40-plus years ago and was made very aware of the disgust and fear prevalent  here concerning gays and lesbians. I was delighted to hear you and your wife have felt comfortable and accepted. I applaud your courage writing and sending your message.

I drove down to see and thank those participating in the Pride events Sunday. It’s a leap in the right direction. Pray your family remains safe and enjoying life in the Ozarks.

Sincere thanks,
Anne Moody,
