Las Vegas, Nevada, June 25, 2013 — Las Vegas PRIDE is happy to announce that it has selected its theme for the 2013 PRIDE Celebration. Celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, “It seemed fitting to have a theme for this special celebration,” said Ernie Yuen, Las Vegas PRIDE President. “I think everyone remembers the President’s inauguration speech on January 22, 2013 when Mr. Obama announced ‘Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law… For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.’ The President’s speech was our inspiration. I think everyone has a part in this journey and it is important for everyone to be involved and to have a voice.”
The Las Vegas PRIDE Board has selected “Journey to Equality” as the 2013 Las Vegas PRIDE theme this year. We are all on a journey together. “Our hope is that, in the end, all people will be recognized as being created equal,” said Yuen.
Please join Las Vegas PRIDE as we celebrate our “Journey to Equality”. The Annual PRIDE Night Parade will be held on September 6th and the Annual PRIDE Festival will take place at the Clark County Government Center on September 7th.
