A self-described “former leftist lesbian," Rosaria Butterfield, has a lecture tonight on the USF Tampa Campus.

Luke Blankenship, president of the P.R.I.D.E Alliance, says he hopes Butterfield's message doesn't influence young minds confused about their sexuality.

Hillsborough County Commissioners unanimously voted today to lift the ban on county promotion of gay pride events.  

But one opponent to repealing the ban was Bianca Perez.

"As a mother and as a resident of Hillsborough County, I do not want my tax dollars being used to promote a lifestyle that the Bible clearly says is wrong," she said.

She continued to quote two scriptures from the Bible.
