Happy June!

Summer is finally here, and we’re excited for all that’s in store! The Harvey Milk Celebration in May marked the fourth year of this great community event. We very much enjoyed continuing a tradition of our community by honoring those that have made a significant impact. A huge thanks to all for being a part of this event, especially our sauce competitors! Check out many more pictures of the event online and on Facebook!

The Carnival After Dark is happening on Saturday, June 10th, from 7-11pm at Jensen & Co. Salon. This great event will feature a fashion show, live music, DJ and more! You’re invited to come out, as all proceeds benefit Our Center.

Finally, don’t forget the Worldwide Equality March for Unity and Pride on June 11th at 11am. We’ll meet at Reno City Plaza and march to the arch! This event is just one of thousands taking place around the world!

Equality March – Reno

Equality March – Reno


· Hosted by Northern Nevada Pride Festival and Community Parade and Our Center

Sunday, June 11 at 11 AM – 1 PM
Downtown City Plaza

E 1st St, Reno, Nevada 89501


Prepare to meet at Reno City Plaza at the BELIEVE sculpture, and then we will march to the Arch!

This is part of the worldwide solidarity marches happening with the National Pride March in DC.

Locally, the annual Northern Nevada Pride CommUNITY Pride Parade, March, and Festival will still be on Saturday, July 22, 2017! This National Pride March is in ADDITION to our annual local parade.

Get your signs ready. Stand up for yourself, your friends, your family and our community.

The Pride March in Reno is sponsored by Our Center and Northern Nevada Pride.

Immediatly following the March will be a PULSE Memorial service.
More details to come.

Update from National Event Organizers:
The outreach and response to this March is staggering and inspiring. What started off as a proposed March in Washington, DC on June 11th, has quickly morphed into a national movement, as well as a global one. Austin(TX), Portland(ME), Indianapolis(IN), Seattle (WA), Sydney (AU) are just a few of the cities who have announced solidarity marches. And there are MANY others who are in the initial planning stages around our country and the world.

For those who can not attend the March in DC, we URGE all our community members, their families, friends, and allies to reach out to their local Pride organizations to help coordinate additional solidarity marches. Use these organizations to help bring your local communities together. The issues that face our community are not just national, but local as well.

In short time, all the pop-up solidarity marches to this main Pride March page.

Let’s make this truly a “National Pride March” that spreads from coast to coast and shows solidarity through our Pride movement. Although at the pace we are going, we might have to change the name to the “Global Pride March!”

Finally…we want to keep building off the mometum and follow the leadership that Black Lives Matter and the Women’s March have created in this new era of activism.Equality March 11 June Reno
