Christians attend Cookstown gay pride parade event — both for and against
Christians were on either side of a gay pride event in Cookstown at the weekend.
More than one minister was seen standing in support of the second ever Rural LGBTQI+ event in the Co Tyrone town on Saturday, as were marchers sporting ‘Christians at Pride’ signs or logos.
A group of Christian protestors was also present in opposition to the event, behind a banner which read ‘Christians opposed to ‘rural pride’’.
The parade walked from Fairhill Car Park through the centre of the town.
It then returned to the car park.
