This is the second year a Pride Month proclamation has been denied for Lovettsville. LOVETTSVILLE, Va. — Some members of the Lovettsville community are feeling shock and disbelief after the Lovettsville Town Council denied putting a Pride Month proclamation on its town council agenda. Council Member Renne Edmonston was the lone council member to make a motion to add it to the May 26 agenda. They decided that it wasn't worth doing and the signal they send is that we are not worth listening to.”Consaul said she proposed a similar Pride Month proclamation last year after their Pride Month flags were slashed and stolen. Despite the town not officially acknowledging Pride Month, Consaul said that isn’t going to stop Pride celebrations or the push for inclusivity.
