“This has been a difficult decision to make, but our highest priority has always been the health and safety of Pride attendees, performers, volunteers and staff,” said OutFront Executive Director Amy Hunter in an article on MLive. “Kalamazoo Pride attracts thousands of attendees and gathering a crowd of that size any time this summer would not be a responsible choice.”
