Brady McGill, President, Las Vegas PRIDE

As we celebrate 40 years of Las Vegas PRIDE, we are saddened by the trends in laws limiting drag performance and expression. These narrow-minded laws adversely affect our community, especially those who have other expressions of gender. We are so lucky to have activists fighting for rights in Nevada. Please share love and support for our friends at Silver State Equality, Gender Justice Nevada, and the Trans Pride Center. We also are so PROUD of our Nevada elected officials, Senators Pat Spearman, Dallas Harris, and Melanie Scheible, along with Assemblywoman Cecelia González, who have sponsored Senate Bill 163. This Bill seeks to require health insurance to cover the treatment of certain conditions relating to gender dysphoria, gender incongruence, and other disorders of sexual development.

We must stand strong in supporting diversity and fighting for equity, equality, and justice for all individuals!
