Tomorrow, June 12, District 7 City Councilman Patrick Dowd and Pittsburgh City Council will present Sharon Needles with an official proclamation declaring June 12, 2012 “Sharon Needles Day in Pittsburgh” for her accomplishments as a LGBT public figure. Sharon is no stranger to NakYouOut, as we’ve covered her in the past, from her initial casting on RuPaul’s Drag Race to her climb to the top. We’ve even interviewed her partner, Alaska Thunderfuck a while back. These two are quite the pair. The schedule for the event is as follows:
10AM- Council Meeting officially begins in Council Chambers on the 5th Floor of the City-County Building – 414 Grant St. Pittsburgh, PA 15219
11AM- Sharon Needles is presented with a proclamation in Council chambers. This will be read into the official record and presented on Pittsburgh Public TV.
11:25AM- Council Meeting adjourns.
11:30AM- Post-Council Meeting presentations and Q&A.
They would also like to note that the public is welcome and encouraged to attend both the official Council meeting and the press conference afterwards, so exercise your civic rights while you celebrate the accomplishments of one of Pittsburgh’s most well-known members of the LGBT community. YOU GO GIRL!
