Rogue Valley Pride is the largest PRIDE parade and festival in Southern Oregon. This year, it is being hosted by a great LGBT advocacy group called the Lotus Rising Project, and amBi Southern Oregon is the main sponsor of the festivities!
This is no small deal. As far as we know, this is the first time a bisexual group has been the main sponsor of a regional PRIDE parade and festival.
This year's Southern Oregon PRIDE represents a remarkable collaboration between a respected local LGBT group (Lotus Rising) and our own growing bi social club.
Considering that just a few years ago, bi people were being excluded from the leadership of PRIDE due to biphobia, it's fair to say this is a hugely positive sign of progress.
We are thrilled to be able to offer support to the team hosting Rogue Valley PRIDE. And we are honored that the Pride leadership saw fit to nominate Kaylee Walker (lead organizer of amBi S.O.) as Pride Grand Marshall!
We sincerely hope that this will represent years of great colaboration between amBi and Lotus Rising to come.
The parade and after party are this Saturday. Click here to join us!
