“Powered by people ready to see authentic representation in the Heights, our event is an ode to the historic efforts made by the fierce LGBTQIA+ community who have fought to be seen and heard. The LGBTQIA+ community is near and dear to me- I’m a proud ally and friend to amazing humans who’ve brightened my life with love, joy, and wisdom. We must continue to support our friends and family members by being a vocal advocate and educating ourselves on the history of the gay liberation movement. This includes acknowledging the erasure of Black, Brown, Indigenous, two-spirit, and trans communities who to this day face systemic violence and discrimination. Let’s promote a just and equitable city where ALL residents can thrive,” says Freire.
