Las Vegas, Nevada, March 19, 2014 — For the very first time in the organization’s history, Las Vegas Pride will produce their own “Guide to Las Vegas Pride 2014” in-house. “We are really working hard to make this year’s pride guide different. In the past, we have never had 100% control of the content and design,” said President of Las Vegas PRIDE Ernie Yuen. “We are excited to open this new chapter for our organization. Las Vegas PRIDE was one of the few west coast pride events not producing their own guide.”
The new approach is expected to produce a stylish event guide with a focus on creating a guide that everyone in Las Vegas can be proud of. The first noticeable change will be in the publication’s size; with a change from last year’s digest size to a full-color standard size magazine. This will provide greater value to our sponsors and advertisers. Full page, half page and quarter page ads are available. Early bird discounted rates will be offered and pricing is affordable. Release of the Guide is also scheduled for early August with a distribution across the west coast. Twenty-five thousand copies are scheduled for print.
Guide to Las Vegas Pride 2014 will be filled with details on our annual events, the PRIDE Festival, PRIDE Night Parade, various activities, entertainment, sponsors and supporters. We will also include Festival and Parade route maps. The Guide is also expected to include a variety of articles that focus on education and current issues facing the LGBT Community.
The guide will be a community-based publication read by thousands of Las Vegas locals. Local authors, historians and community members have already agreed to provide articles and historical information for the project. In addition, sister PRIDE organizations have also agreed to assist with this exciting new endeavor. Please contact Prideguidelv@lasvegaspride.org for more information.
