Each year the the Ark Valley Pride Purple People Powered Pride Parade (sponsored by Planned Parenthood) grows larger and larger. In 2018 over 500 people celebrated diversity by showing their support and walking in the parade.
Our goal for 2019 is to double those numbers with supporting organizations, members of the GSAs formed in Buena Vista, Salida, & Leadville, allies from the Ark Valley Equality Network, local politicians, youth organizations, out-of-town guests, and community members like you!
Join us again this year and participate in the Planned Parenthood Purple People Powered Pride Parade. Check out our events to help you get ready!
