Thunder Bay City Council has thrown it's support behind "Thunder Pride" week. Councillor Andrew Foulds says we should be embracing these type of initiatives because it helps the lives of teens and adults living alternative lifestyles. The week long event will celebrate gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people. Mayor Keith Hobbs says he's proud to support the initiative and notes the community needs to embrace the LGBT community. Hobbs says one city councillor has received nasty comments over the Pride week. The celebrations are scheduled for June.
