Pride is dedicated to bringing LGBTA events to the area throughout the year. We provide resources and information to the community and opportunities for learning. Many of our events are open to all ages because we are committed to the youth of our community. Some past events include: bimonthly Gay Straight Alliance meetings, seminars, Pride Night @ TinCaps, Pride Skate, drag shows, Rainbow Bowling; LGBT dinner/discussions, LGBTA prom, and many more. Pride also helps to promote and co-sponsor events with community organizations. Stay up to date with our events and check back often.
