Equality Prince William Pride is Back!
 
Prince William County, Manassas City and Manassas Park City, Virginia will once again have a local PRIDE event! May 18, 2024 is the big day!
 
Equality Prince William is again hosting this event in the heart of Historic Downtown Manassas at the Harris Pavilion. This PRIDE event is successful because of you: volunteers, families, allies, citizens, vendors, sponsors, local non-profits, businesses (small and large), and the general public. We plan on having a DJ, live musical performances, raffle prizes, and plenty of fun!
You can find all of the information you will need at https://www.equalityprincewilliam.org/equality-prince…/.
——————————
Equality Prince William is committed to recognizing the diversity of the Greater Prince William community. We don’t seek special privileges – only equality for all.
 
We believe that the LGBTQIA+ community in Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, needs a voice. We hope that you support our efforts to make PWC a more welcoming, more diverse, more inclusive place to live and work.
 
The LGBTQIA+ youth of PWC need to see that their county will support them and protect them. Please help us continue to fight for a better Prince William County, and support Pride 2024.
 
Equality Prince William is a non-partisan organization formed to address equal rights issues for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, questioning, intersex, asexual plus individuals (LGBTQIA+) from a local Greater Prince William County perspective.
 
We are committed to maintaining an organization that reflects the diversity of the Greater Prince William community, and building relationships with business and civic groups, community leaders, and our elected leadership.
