Pride Our Way

What Is Pride Our Way?

For years, the disabled/chronically ill community has been excluded from Pride events. Not anymore. 

Pride Our Way is a two-day virtual event that includes exhibits by disabled artists, drag performances, giveaways, and more. 

Events will be simultaneously streamed on YouTube. You do not need a ticket if you prefer to just to be an observer at any and all events.
