Proud to be Out & Partying in Pittsfield

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsOn Friday night at the City of Pittsfield’s Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, Mayor James Ruberto issued an official proclamation—proudly held (left) by Jason Verchot and Dana Bixby of the Berkshire Stonewall Community Coalition— declaring it Out in the Berkshires Weekend. It began: “Whereas the city of Pittsfield prides itself on being a welcome, open and supportive community to all of its residents and visitors, gay or straight, of any race or ethnicity, religious background or economic class and, Whereas the city of Pittsfield is proud of its many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender residents . . .” There were thunderous applause for the mayor after he read the entire proclamation at the opening reception for the “Out in the Berkshires” art show, which featured the art of regional LGBTQ artists.
