Throughout the month of June, Pride is celebrated all around the world to campaign for recognition and acceptance of same-sex marriage, legal protections, and anti-discrimination laws and trans rights. 

There has been major progress made over the past few decades but there are still many obstacles to face.

So, let's have a KIKi, show our true colors & and celebrate freedom, because baby we were born this way!

Come DANCE, listen to MUSIC and MARCH together towards improving the visibility and acceptance of legal protections of our gay and trans brothers and sisters.

Bring signs, wear your most outlandish outfits and let your freak flag fly as we come together to celebrate the beautiful differences that make us all fabulous!

There will be live entertainment on three stages, a pride vigil to stand against violence and over 14 food vendors offering vegetarian options and (adult slushy) beverages.
