It was a very special moment for Carden because he saw a local teenager at an event in the city. The teenager told him this was his first LGBT event and he was having a great time.
Carden realized that he could no longer hold the event in his backyard, so he created a permit for a picnic in a nearby park that he had created himself. He got permission for them to get off and picnic in nearby parks, reached out to the city and asked local vendors to set up booths to support the events, and a DJ also offered his services. Within the first week, more than 50 people had attended the event and Carden could not believe how many people were there.
