WPAFB, Ohio (WDTN) – A gay pride event at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has been rescheduled.

Bad weather last Friday forced organizers to cancel the 5K Pride Run.

The run will now happen Wednesday, June 25. Registration begins at 2:00 p.m. The race begins at 3:00 p.m.

The event sparked controversy earlier this week. Critics say the base should not support such an event, but base spokespeople say diversity strengthens our military.
