LAS VEGAS PRIDE CELEBRATES 25TH ANNIVERSARY
National & Local Celebrities Converge For Las Vegas PRIDE Festivities
Las Vegas, NV, April 15, 2008: This year marks the 25th Anniversary of Las Vegas PRIDE. As in years past, this year the diversity and pride of the Las Vegas gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) community will be celebrated over the course of two weeks of events culminating with the annual Las Vegas PRIDE Night Parade on May 2nd and Pride Festival on May 3rd.
PRIDE’s 10th Annual Night Parade promises to be grander than any other PRIDE parade ever held in Las Vegas! Join us on May 2nd from 8 to 10 p.m. in downtown Las Vegas for the most glamorous, glittering spectacle ever created by the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community of Southern Nevada. This year’s PRIDE Night Parade features Las Vegas’ gay and straight business community, nonprofit organizations, GLBT service agencies, civic groups and churches as well as our newly crowned adult and youth PRIDE royalty. Nevada Assemblyman David Parks is the parade Grand Marshall. The parade route begins at West Charleston Blvd. and heads north along 4th Street to Ogden Avenue. The parade main stage is located at 4th Street and Bridger Avenue just two blocks south of the Fremont Street Experience.
Celebrate Diversity at the PRIDE Festival where everyone is welcome.
