Mayor’s Reno Pride Party

Hi, NALA friends!

We’re so excited to announce NALA’s 3rd Annual Mayor’s Reno Pride Party in collaboration with Mayor Hillary Schieve and FacesNV.
 
The party will take place in two weeks on Saturday, June 22, at 9 PM!
 
It’s going to be a fun event to celebrate our Reno Pride during National Pride Month. Yes, we are a PROUD city, and our Mayor is an awesome ally! She’d love for you and all your friends and colleagues to join her in celebrating our LGBTQ community. She’ll also be handing out her Rainbow “R” Awards.
 
Come on down to FacesNV for lots of fun: dancing, drag, drinks! And a Mayor Schieve Look-a-like Contest. Haha! You’ll win $250 if you’re the best Hillary!
 
Entry at the door is $5 to help defray costs of putting on the event. The door will cover you for the after-party drag show.
 
Please share the attached flyer with your own organizations and networks. See you there!
 
Happy Pride!
Sean
For NALA
 
PS. The Northern Nevada Pride Festival and Parade are scheduled for Saturday, July 27. Please inquire with Our Center for details. :-)
