If you missed the past few years, here's what people had to say about the events:
I think it is an awesome opportunity to see friends, vendors and be entertained at a nice venue.
I think the BR gay community is being VERY well-served by the Pride Fest and I already look forward to next year's event.
If people want to go to any event of their peers and have a good time and fellowship...this was it!
Wonderful opportunity to meet and view other alternative families and show my child that we're not alone in not “being the norm.”
The Pride Fest was a terrific source for information.
You guys did an amazing job. Please continue to stress the family friendly part of the event.
My favorite part was being able to see so many in a small community come together for equality not just gay pride.
Seeing gay people from all walks of life coming together to celebrate themselves was an incredible experience.
The food and music, actually everything, was so awesome.
When the minister blessed the relationships, it was a beautiful, touching moment that I watched in awe.
I felt welcome, and the music and people were amazing.
There are resources available that I was not even aware of.
PrideFest is a fabulously educational, resourceful, entertaining and social rendezvous.
It was good entertainment. It was also a good place to see friends you have not seen in a while and also a good place to get information. Overall, it was an excellent event.
I would encourage others to attend because it lets others (straight and gay) see what we are about and that we are PROUD of who we are.
It's a great community event!
Even more, nearly EVERYONE who responded to our 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 surveys said they would attend Pride Fest again and bring their friends. Be there with them this year!
