Better Together – Ready to Show Our Pride!

By Matt Hoffman

The annual St. Louis PrideFest celebration and parade will be held Saturday, June 28, and Sunday, June 29, at Soldiers’ Memorial in downtown St. Louis. The first PrideFest was held in St. Louis in 1981, and has grown in size and influence ever since. In 2011, for example, an estimated 85,000 people attended PrideFest throughout the weekend. In 2012, over 100,000 people attended, making St. Louis PrideFest one of the most highly-attended LGBT events in the Midwest.

This year, Better Together is proud to serve as a sponsor for the festival. We will be walking in the parade, which takes place Sunday at 11 a.m. and travels down Market Street, and hosting a booth all weekend. PrideFest runs from noon to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sunday – come check out a great event, and swing by the Better Together booth to learn more about our work while you’re at it.
