Submitted by Columbia Valley Pride
Columbia Valley Pride, founded in 2017, is run by a small group of dedicated individuals. Kristopher Murrell, Tara Woods, Mike Gray, Timothy Richards, and a new group of volunteers, have been working hard to make the dream into a reality. The organization was formed to celebrate the LGBTQ2IA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, two-spirit, intersex, asexual, etc.) community, and create a safer and more diverse atmosphere within the Columbia Valley. While the focus is on the LGBTQ2IA+ community, Columbia Pride is for everyone.
The Pride events will be held on Saturday, September 22nd. A family-fun afternoon will be held at Lakeshore Resort & Campground from 12-4 p.m., which will include a variety of entertainment, games, face painting, a barbecue, and local vendors. Please bring cash for the barbecue and vendors.
After the sun goes down, the stars come out. Local drag queen legend April Storm and her fellow superstars will be gracing the stage at Horsethief Creek Pub & Eatery. Tickets will be $20 and can be purchased in advance through the Pub at 250-347-6400. This event is 19+.
Columbia Valley Pride is currently looking for volunteers to help for the Family Fun Afternoon.
