First Annual Columbia County Pride Parade and Festival

UPDATE:┬áBecause of the oppressive heat and horrible breathing conditions, the planning committee has decided to cancel this year’s Pride. It WILL happen, just not this year.

The First Annual Columbia County Pride Parade and Festival will be held on August 12, 2017!(Flyer is attached). The goal is to create an event that promotes solidarity and equality in our community. The Pride movement has been one of extreme importance across the nation, and we want to bring the benefits of this celebration to Columbia County. This event will increase awareness, support, and healing for LGBTQ people who have been marginalized, discriminated against, and harmed in this and neighboring areas. It will provide an opportunity for allies to identify themselves as supporters to the LGBTQ community. And, of course, it will provide a safe atmosphere for people to connect and build new friendships. Columbia County Pride will bring an influx of people into the community, increasing revenue for local businesses. The benefits of this event are endless for everyone!

Columbia County Pride envisions a community in which LGBTQ people and allies are affirmed, respected, and included in the full social and civic life of the place they call home, free from fear of any discrimination, rejection, and prejudice. The goal is to foster diversity, unity, visibility, and dignity; creating a safe, family-friendly environment in which everyone can commune and raise their kids.

Weekly community meetings for event planning, volunteer sign-up, information, etc. will be held on Thursdays at 6:30pm at Medicine Wheel Recovery Services 58147 Columbia River Highway, Suite C, St. Helens, OR. 97051
