We define our community without consideration of race, sexual preference, or religion," said Lindsey Beddard, who is helping to coordinate the happy hour from the Longs Peak side. "Pride Happy Hour is a natural fit for Longs Peak Pub because we seek out and embrace any chance to be a gathering place for all people".
