Fresh City Life will be celebrating Denver PrideFest this Saturday with a lemonade stand and button making station on Acoma Plaza. This will be our second annual stint hosting a refreshment stand in the name of one of the greatest GLBT authors in history -- Oscar Wilde. During a promotional tour in 1882, Oscar actually came to Denver and lectured at the opera house here and in Leadville. He stayed as the guest of Horace Tabor and was well-received by most of Denver's citizens.

Then I heard it on the radio or somewhere like that... who knows, could have been Spotify, a car driving by, Pandora, elevator music.
