This weekend in fun progressive times — it’s the Portland PRIDE Festival!
One of our favorite events of the year, the PRIDE Festival is always a fabulous time.

Our friends over at Basic Rights Oregon will be marching in the parade on Sunday, hosting a Gaylabration dance party on Friday night and hanging out at waterfront park all weekend long!

The Portland Pride Festival will be going on all weekend, this Friday through Sunday on Waterfront Park in downtown. The Pride Parade will step off at 11:30am on Sunday, June 17.

We hope to see you there! We’re at a critical and exciting time for LGBT rights. A few recent successes – the President’s recent endorsement of marriage equality, local Oregon groups being recognized for their great work in the New York Times, the first openly transgender person to testify before the US Senate did so this week, repeal of DOMA in California and so many more. People across the country are working for justice and equality — join them and show your pride in support!

If you go, make sure to say hi to Basic Rights Oregon volunteers… and to us! Our campaign to reform the corporate kicker and send money to Oregon’s K-12 schools will be out and about, so make sure to sign the petition when you see someone!
