FRANKLIN, Tennessee – Gabrielle Hanson, who is a Franklin alderman-at-large, told The Tennessee Star that her office and the offices of her peers are being flooded with outraged complaints about the June 4 “Franklin Pride” event and Mayor Ken Moore’s woke proclamation that was read at the event that included drag queens and children.
“Our phones and emails have been blowing up,” Hanson said.
Franklin Vice Mayor Brandy Blanton read a woke “Pride Month” proclamation on behalf of Mayor Ken Moore alongside City Administrator Eric Stuckey and “Franklin Pride” board president Robert McNamara at “Franklin Pride” on Saturday.
The event, which was a celebration of the “LGBTQ lifestyle,” took place on June 4 from 12pm to 7pm at Harlinsdale Park. The event reportedly had drag queens in attendance as well as other expressions of the woke lifestyle.
