LGBT Truckers Ride With Pride, Raising Awareness Around Country

 |

At the wheel of the Rainbow Rider, a semi-tractor truck wrapped in a rainbow-hued road map, the LGBT Truckers can’t help but attract attention. And that’s their intention. The online support group, representing more than 4,500 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender truck drivers nationwide, is on a mission to spread goodwill and promote awareness of the growing number of LGBT truckers around the country. Throughout this year, the Rainbow Rider has made appearances at events from San Francisco on the west coast to Washington, D.C. on the east. But this week the truckers are wrapping up their whirlwind tour closer to home. Their last stop of the year will be at a drag show fundraiser at VFW Post 39, 2599 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, where Tampa Bay entertainer, author and artist Victoria Michael has been working with the post to raise money to restore the VFW’s 175-seat theater.
