HUGO A GO-GO gets FIERCE!

My hunky huzbear HUGO A GO-GO is such a trailblazer.  He started an all inclusive LGBTQ2+ gay group here called FIERCE Merritt.  This town had never seen anything quite like it.  The local press got wind of HUGO A GO-GO'S idea and he was featured on the CBC News in Kamloops hosted by Shelly Joyce and on Q101 Merritt's station.  He had a meet & greet at a local cafe and then proceeded to have the first community gay picnic ever held here.  It was a great success but it wasn't without controversy. This was followed by a series of get-togethers at the Conyat Friendship Society..as a safe place to gather.  That came to an abrupt end when the person that approached us to start the group there quit her job. We were already thinking whether or not to do a picnic again this year but it seems the Covid virus made that decision for us. There is a website with some more pics of the events we had.  http://www.fiercemerritt.simplesite.com
