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.
NW PA Pride Alliance will be accepting design entries through March 1 for the 2017 Pride logo. The theme for 2017 Pride is "25 Years of Pride!" We hope that your design will include the official Pride theme. This year’s Pride Picnic will be the 25th anniversary
