In Idaho, it is still permitted to deny LGBT people access to housing, employment and public accommodations. Friday and Saturday, mix salt and sugar at the Boise Pride Festival, a two-day event that will call for LGBT protections in Idaho law and get people dancing 'til they drop. Join the Boise Men's and Women's choruses on the Capitol steps Friday for the Capitol Lighting and festivities in nearby Capitol Park starting at 6 p.m. Stay rested for the annual rally Saturday at the Capitol to hear from lawmakers, advocates and victims about how Idaho can do better. Kick high spirits into high gear with the always-impressive Pride Parade, which begins at 11:15 a.m. Saturday, and will feature floats, music and LGBT celebrities, and round out the day with more festivities in Capitol Park.
