Frequently Asked Accessibility Questions

I need an ASL interpreter in order to attend an event!

If you need an ASL Interpreter to fully participate in meetings, trainings, workshops, and other Pride events open to the public, please put in your request at least one week prior to the event. Email all requests to [email protected]. Cancel at least twenty-four hours prior to the event if you are unable to attend. Pride is charged if we do not cancel the interpreter with at least twenty-four hours’ notice. Please be on time if you have requested an interpreter. Interpreters will wait twenty minutes after an event’s start time, and if the person requesting the service has not arrived, the the interpreter will leave. Note that Pride will still be charged the full cost.

I can't find my accommodation need or have a specific accommodation request!

Please contact [email protected] for any accommodation requests not listed on this page.

What is a service animal?

Service animals perform tasks for their handlers related to the individual’s specific disability. The person does not need to have a physical disability to have a qualified service dog. Dogs that are exclusively emotional support dogs, however, are not trained to perform a specific task related to a disability. Instead, they benefit a person with a disability simply by the unique nature of the bond between canine and human. Such dogs are not legally granted the same rights as service dogs. Recognizing that some individuals with certain disabilities may need their canine companion to fully participate in events at Pride, Pride will admit an emotional support dog that has documentation of the role they play in their handler’s life.
