Pride Week 2017 is September 15th to 24th – Mark your calendar and join the celebration!
The theme of the 2017 Pride Week is “Out for Good” which speaks to the need to ensure that we are free to live as our whole selves our entire lives and not face discrimination at any time especially as we age. It also is a reminder that many who identify as LGBTQ play vital roles in social services and good work that help make our community a better place to live.
Pride Week is a collection of community run events book-ended by the Flag raising on Friday September 15th and the Parade and Park events on Saturday September 23rd.
You are invited to propose events to be included in Pride Week. For more information and to learn about help to make your event a success go to this link: Create an Event
