Sheryl Rich-Kern

This past Saturday at Manchester’s Veterans Memorial Park, more than 500 people showed up to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

It was the first New Hampshire gay pride festival in 15 years.

But the lead up to this year’s festival was overshadowed by a donation from Nashua's Chick-fil-A. 

“We’re fabulous, come march with us. We’re here, we’re queer, we’re fabulous."

On this hot and humid Saturday, New Hampshire’s LGBT community turned up the volume on its fight against discrimination.

Sam Evans-Brown

SeaCare Health Services

Dana Trahan was uninsured when she started to lose her vision, but did not realize that this was the result of a brain tumor. SeaCare Health Services helped her get the care and treatment she needed – quickly.

Dana: I would be watching my son’s baseball games and I really felt as if I needed to keep blinking my eyes to get focused on him, so I thought it made sense to have my eyes checked. Knowing that I didn’t have the health insurance, it was important to me to figure out a way to make this an affordable experience, and that brought me to SeaCare.

The sixty five year old race-walker and one time Olympic trials qualifier is pumping his arms, his hips are swaying wide and as everyone else bounces, Keating seems to glide around the perimeter of the track.
