FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Members of Fort Wayne's LGBT community went out Saturday to clean up Lawton Park on the two year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
Fort Wayne Pride does several events throughout the year, and this is just one way they're giving back. All ages attended the event, as well as straight allies.
Volunteers said they're all about loving the community and working to make it better.
"Of course we want to celebrate pride because we want equality just like everyone else, but we also want people to know that we're just a part of the community too, and it's important for us to give back because we care about our community just as much as anybody else does," said Kristy Lindeman.
