Happy Monday, everyone. And happy Pride Month, which got underway while we were off. That's why we're only now bringing you this photo of the congresswoman in a rainbow bunting-decorated Chevy Camaro. There's a Pride myth that, years ago, this car and Louise never stopped driving and waving for the entirety of Pride Month. Of course, it's false. This photo is from the 2015 Rochester Pride parade. 

If you're interested in exploring the city of Rochester's Pride roots, Lev Earle, special collections processing archivist for Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation (RBSCP), shared personal commentary on a few RBSCP collections they organized. Take a look. 

Have a great week! ∎
