Detroit Pride Fest really was 'Hotter Than July'

LGBT Pride Fest Detroit July 2015

Hotter Than July!, the African American LGBT Pride Fest in Detroit, couldn't have been more aptly named this year.

Temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s greeted more than 2,000 participants at the July 24-26 20th anniversary event.

AARP sponsored breakfast on the opening day and volunteers staffed a resource table where attendees could learn about caregiving, AARP Fraud Watch Network, Life Reimagined and other topics.

Lisa Whitmore Davis, AARP Michigan Associate State Director for Multicultural Outreach, led a one-hour workshop on caregiving and the CARE Act attended by 100.

"This is a great opportunity each year for us to engage with the LGBT community in Detroit, reach people with our programs and spread the word about AARP," she said.
