Being Seen - Being Heard - Being a Community [Exhibit Panel]


Pride is among the ways Gay people have created a public presence. For the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered (GLBT) community worldwide, Pride is a party, a protest, or both at once. Pride demands and defends the civil rights of GLBT people. Pride celebrates and remembers a minority group that once lived in the shadows of the larger population, but is now out, visible, and here to stay.

For more than 30 years, Pride has provided a forum for people- Gay and straight- to speak out on civil rights, politics, the AIDS epidemic and other issues. It also is a venue for GLBT political activity and community building. From its first years, Pride has been a place where community organizations and institutions could showcase their activities and attract new members.
