Why Pasco Pride?
"We saw a need for resources and activities for the LGBT Community in Pasco County and set out on a new mission. Working with two local organizations willing to sponsor a Peer Support group for the LGBT Community it quickly turned into a 250+ local member Social Club. Realizing the need for even more, we set out to bring a Pride Festival in Pasco County. Finding support with the local governments and having the support of the community we have been able to get the permits needed for a history making event, a Pasco Pride Festival being held on October 6, 2018, in Sims Park, downtown New Port Richey, for the first time ever! Pasco Pride Inc, has been born. We're young, eager, learning and growing, join us on our path of making diversity a positive and accepted thing in Pasco County."
