Programs, functions, and actions of the Mens CircleEdit
The Mens Circle is a visible entity in East Central Minnesota. It lobbies for support of LGBT-positive bills and works to build an LGBT-friendly atmosphere in rural Minnesota. The organization is most notable for hosting East-Central Minnesota Pride, a gay pride held in Pine City, Minnesota each June since 2005.
History and leadershipEdit
The Mens Circle was established in 2000 by RAAN, which stands for Rural Aids Action Network. It has been meeting in Hinckley, Minnesota since then, although many of the active members of the group reside in the Cambridge and Pine City areas.
