More informtion about Pride in the Plaza on July 8, 2018
Originating in 1996, Central Coast Pride is organized and supported by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance of the Central Coast. Located in San Luis Obispo’s historic Mission Plaza, Pride in the Plaza is the highlight of pride weekend on the Central Coast. The festival is free to the public and features a full afternoon of live entertainment. Come together with your community.
The Mission of Pride:
CELEBRATE – our lives on the Central Coast and our accomplishments as a community;
EDUCATE – the public about our culture, our place in society, and our issues of concern; and
DEMONSTRATE – our diversity, our normalcy, our numbers, and how proud we are to be who we are.
The Growing Together Initiative Fund will be hosting a flower pot painting booth once again this year. Join us on July 8th as we grow together as a community.
