NW PA Pride Alliance is proud to announce that the 2017 Pride shirts are here! Hot off the presses in your choice of black or antique red, both colors are available in both t-shirt and tank top styles in a cool, comfortable lightweight cotton just in time for spring and summer. This year's shirt commemorating 25 years of Pride events in Erie was designed by Alexandra DeSanti, our contest winner.
This year the Northwest Pennsylvania Pride Alliance Inc is already hard at work to make 2017 and the 25th year of Pride special for the entire community. We look forward to having our Pride Fest in June of 2017 during the traditional PRIDE month, and we have the Pride Picnic and other events planned throughout the summer and fall. The support of individuals and organizations in our community has been the catalyst for furthering the Alliance's mission: Improving the visibility of the LGBTQIA community and facilitating communication and collaboration between groups and individuals. We are asking for your support in 2017 as we celebrate 25 years of Pride in NWPA.
Pridefest will take place this year on Saturday, June 24, in the traditional Pride month. We will gather at The Zone Dance Club, 133 W 18th St, Erie PA from 12-1 and step off to march to Perry Square at 1. Once at Perry Square, we will have info tables and vendors along with entertainment including drag performers and many more. For the fourth consecutive year, we will also have HIV and STI testing provided by the Erie County HIV Task Force.
