The Michigan Pride Festival and the
eighth-annual "Remember My Name"
AIDS memorial service will be held at
the state capitol in Lansing this Saturday.
The Pride Festival, centered on
Michigan's march for lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgendered rights, is
hosted each year by the Michigan Pride
Michigan Pride treasurer Erin

increase homosexual awareness.
"It's an event to show Michigan just
how many gay people there are," said
Pride Festival events will be held at
the Washington Square Pedestrian Mall

beginning Friday night. The march will
take place from 1- 2 p.m Saturday.
Stonestreet said the march will
include floats and an ROTC rifle corp
in order to "make it noisy and let peo-
ple know we're out there."
Rev. Mel White is scheduled to pre-
side over a same-sex mass union at 2:30
p.m. that afternoon. White is a former
ghost writer for Jerry Fallwell and Pat
Stonestreet said that 27 couples have
registered for the mass union and that
anyone is welcome to participate on the
day of the ceremony.
The "Remember My Name" Aids
memorial service will also be held in
Lansing on Saturday from 8:30 a.m.
until noon. Committee chairperson

Jean Dukarski estimated that some
2,800 names of AIDS victims will be
submitted by friends and family to be
read on the capitol steps.
For each name read, a ribbon will be
placed on one of 12 poles to be carried in
the Pride March that will take place fol-
lowing the name reading.
Seven panels from the Names Project
quilt, a national quilt made to remem-
ber AIDS victims, will be available for
viewing at the service.
Dukarski said the point of having the
memorial service is to ensure that people
don't forget about AIDS victims.
"All of our friends and loved ones are
still dying of AIDS. Our goal is to make
sure that these people are not forgot-
ten," Dukarski said.
