GLBT Pride Festival fighting Park Board on free speech issue

Body: 
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Twin Cities GLBT Pride are at odds over the festival’s attempt to set up a “free speech zone” at Loring Park where groups opposing the festival’s message would be stationed.

GLBT Pride is seeking an exclusive use permit from the Park Board, but Park Board staff has recommended that the Board of Commissioners deny that permit and instead give the organizers the same non-exclusive permit they have had for the past 38 years.
