LGBTQ DAYTON PRIDE CELEBRATION - Fri, MAY 31 – Sun., JUNE 2

  • June is LGBTQ PRIDE Month – the biggest annual event and celebration in the LGBTQ community. PRIDE is held in June to commemorate the Stonewall Inn Riots that sparked the modern LGBTQ movement for equality. This year, 2019, is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and so PRIDE celebrations will be larger and even more fun than usual! Public Health Dayton & Montgomery County is one of the PRIDE sponsors and will be helping to staff the First AID tent, and we also will have our mobile unit in the parade. Come out and join the LGBTQ community for a weekend of fun. Everyone is welcome – even children.
    • If you would like to help in the First AID tent or walk/ride with Public Health in the mobile unit in the parade, please contact Jerry Mallicoat, LGBTQ Health Initiatives Project Manager at 224-3727 or . It would be great for Public Health to have a strong presence, especially on June 1.
