“The Phoenix Pride Festival and Parade is more than just a weekend event,” said the President of the Phoenix Pride Board of Directors. Lands Smithsaid. “For many in the LGBTQ + community, Pride is the only time of the year when they can be themselves and express their identity and culture openly and confidently. The lack of that moment over the past year has been keenly felt by many in our community and even as we prepare for an amazing celebration in November, I want to remind all members of our LGBTQ + community and our allies that you are not alone and We are all still connected as a community.
“If you need resources, help, or just a friendly touch, please reach out to a Phoenix Pride employee or board member. We will do our best to connect you with anything you need at this difficult moment.”
