LAS VEGAS PRIDE CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY IN 2013
October 10, 2012, Las Vegas, Nevada: 2013 marks the 30th Anniversary of Las Vegas PRIDE, an annual celebration hosted by the Southern Nevada Association of PRIDE, Inc.
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 10 days of events culminating with the annual Las Vegas PRIDE Night Parade on September 6th and Pride Festival on September 7th.
PRIDE’s 15th Annual Night Parade promises to be grander than any other PRIDE parade ever held in Las Vegas! Join us on September 6th 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 crowned adult and youth PRIDE royalty.
Celebrate Diversity at the Las Vegas PRIDE Festival where everyone is welcome. GLBT families, couples, and singles along with their friends and straight allies join together for an entire day of fabulous fun at this great event. Las Vegas PRIDE Festival welcomes hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees at the beautiful Clark County Government Center on Saturday, September 7, 2013 from noon until 10pm.
