Phoenix Pride works diligently all year round to provide members of the LGBTQ+ community with the opportunities, tools, and education to excel, despite obstacles they may encounter. From Phoenix Pride's Facebook page: “Our lives are dedicated to creating a unified community where diverse individuals are celebrated and able to thrive as their authentic selves. All of this love and support leads up to our largest weekend of the year where we provide the safe space for these individuals to be themselves.
“This year, Phoenix Pride was nothing short of phenomenal. We laughed. We cried. We loved. And one of us even proposed. No matter your culture, your interest, or your background, there was room for everyone to come together as a community and be reminded all just how strong we are together.
“Thank you to our volunteers for helping to put on such a flawless show.” (Including Berlin, Kristine W., Los Chicos, Bebe Rexha, Los 5, Thelma Houston, and David Hernandez.)
“Thank you to our community for coming out, loving yourselves, and celebrating who you are!”
