The annual festival, which celebrates over 43 years of camaraderie and acceptance this year, will feature live music, food, and a family fun area. More than 50 companies and organizations have signed up to march from Fort Street to Hart Plaza during the Saturday parade. Additionally, there will be five stages of entertainment and more than 100 sponsor, nonprofit, and sales booths.
This time around, Pride is seeking to illuminate the diverse generations of the LGBTQ community’s past. Its activities will strive to honor the pioneers of the Gay Right movement after the Stonewall riots, in addition to those who initiated medical treatments during the early AIDS crisis and fought for workplace and housing equality.
