Oscar Wilde's Pink Lemonade Stand

Fresh City Life will be celebrating Denver PrideFest this Saturday with a lemonade stand and button making station on Acoma Plaza. This will be our second annual stint hosting a refreshment stand in the name of one of the greatest GLBT authors in history -- Oscar Wilde.

He stayed as the guest of Horace Tabor and was well-received by most of Denver's citizens.
