Our Appreciation…

Our thanks to everyone who works diligently to make all that Pride does accessible to everyone in the LGBT family. From Pride’s staff to our legions of volunteers, both during our July celebrations and throughout the year, everyone has shown a commitment to including all our community members by dedicating their time and talents to our efforts. All that we do would not be possible without these individuals and we appreciate each and everyone.
