Pride 2017 is coming up soon – Saturday, September 16, 2017! LGBTQ Grant County, PFLAG Silver City, and Western New Mexico University’s The Center for Gender Equity & Social Justice will be hosting a festival in Gough Park to celebrate and educate the community concerning gender and sexual diversity in Southwest New Mexico with music, dancing, community and craft booths, and anonymous HIV testing.

The schedule is just about finished, and will include more fun with drag queens, the Doggie Drag Show, and a Saturday night dance with the Illusion Band! Please think about VOLUNTEERING or DONATING if you can to help us make it happen. Also, we need to borrow sun and rain canopies from anyone who has one to share!

We really need vendors for the fair, so please spread the word! Nonprofits pay $15 for a booth space, for-profits pay $30 and food vendors pay $50 (includes utilities).

Our biggest need is to raise funds to pay for entertainers and equipment! You can donate to us via the #RuralPride Campaign via GoFundMe https://www.gofundme.com/help-us-have-p ... ilver-city!

Help us have a great PRIDE festival on September 16th, 2017 in Silver City by helping us find vendors, canopies and by donating cash. We can also use gift certificates from area businesses and prizes for both the raffles and winners of the Doggie Drag Show!

LGBTQ Grant County is a 501C-3 category nonprofit that provides services to the LGBTQ community of southwest New Mexico. The Holiday Inn Express of Silver City (575 538-2525) will provide conference rates for lodging for participants who mention ‘Pride 2017’.
Contact: Ted Tufares, Event Coordinator & LGBTQ Board President, tedtufares@gmail.com or 575 654-3851 for more information or to register.

Vendors & Volunteers: Please call Lauren Dazey at 720 384-6969 or lauren.dazey@yahoo.com.
