DUE TO COVID
Due to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution, the YS Pride 2021 festivities will be abbreviated. Our goal is to continue our tradition of celebration, but with safety protocols in place. We appreciate your support and look forward to your attendance. There is still much to celebrate, and we will continue to be proud of our individuality & diversity.
THE LATEST NEWS
Yellow Springs, OH has a long history of inclusion: Welcoming, accepting, and supporting people from all walks of life - regardless of race, sexual orientation, religious preference, and gender. Equality for ALL and advocating for LGBTQ+ rights remain at the forefront of community initiatives.
To celebrate authenticity, individuality, and the right to the pursuit of happiness for ALL, Yellow Springs hosts an Annual #YSPride Event on the last Saturday of June. This fantastic gathering is to educate, learn, dance, sing, listen, and enjoy each other's diversities in a warm, friendly, affirming, and inclusive environment where ALL are welcome.
Each year, community members, non-profits & businesses are invited to participate in the festivities by supporting through sponsorship of cars, floats, prizes for contests, finances, in-kind gifts, volunteering time, and other needed resources to make this event the absolute best that it can be. In addition, LGBTQ+ artists, vendors, musicians, and allies are highlighted (when available) throughout the event.
The goal of YS Pride is simple: Create intentional space for members of the LGBTQ+ community to know that they matter, that they are valued, that they are seen, that they are supported, and that they BELONG! #BeYourselfHere #YSPride
YS Pride continues to provide a safe space for people - both in the LGBTQ+ community as well as allies - to express themselves. Our inclusive, diverse community supports the rights of each person to freely be themselves:
No judgment. No discrimination. No hate.
Join us as we remain committed to celebrating equality for ALL.
