The NW PA Pride Alliance, Inc. works to improve visibility of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersexed and Ally/Asexual (LGBTQIA) community. It also facilitates communication and collaboration between groups and individuals within the region's LGBTQIA community and the greater region's community, while respecting individual and group identity.
The Erie County HIV Task Force will be offering FREE rapid HIV, syphilis and Hepatitis testing at Pridefest from 2:00pm-4:00pm. Pridefest is sponsored by NW PA Pride Alliance. Look for the testing tent sponsored by the Greater Erie Alliance for Equality. Thank you Community Health Net and the Erie County Department of Health for providing the testing. SAME DAY RESULTS AND IT'S FREE!
Individuals are very much welcome to be in the parade as well!
See you there!
On August 2, 2014, NW PA Pride Alliance was proud to once again staff an LGBT info table at the Annual Blues and Jazz Fest in Frontier Park. The Blues and Jazz Fest is organized by Erie Art Museum and other organizations and is attended by over 20,000 people.
The table also had info from Erie Sisters and Mental Health Association of NW PA, as well as cards from Equality PA in support of HB 300/SB 300 for Equality PAs campaign to pass anti-discrimination legislation at the state level.
Thanks go out to Brian Davies, Johauna, Melanie Shubitowski, Julie Flagella, Alex Sphon, Daniel Thomas, Will Koehler and Rex Apps.
