No ducks, just geese
Elizabeth Rodriguez and her son, Carlos, 6, introduce the family’s latest addition, 9-month-old Jake, to a gaggle of geese last Sunday. The family was strolling in Byrd Park, feeding the ducks and geese.

The two-day event, designed to educate, embrace and celebrate the unique experiences of Richmond’s black LGBTQ community, drew several hundred people despite rain that moved the event indoors. Featured were speakers and workshops on a variety of topics, entertainment and a worship service Sunday at Third Street Bethel AME Church. Intern Tariq Crumbly, a recent Virginia Commonwealth University graduate, helped with the event.
