My partner and I just recently moved to Newport from out of state. One of the first things I researched when we moved here was if they hosted a yearly Pride. I was so excited to learn that we would be here for the first Pride celebration this September. 

I am a member of the LGBTQ community, and I know this is an opportunity to support those who live and work and contribute in our community. Pride to me is an opportunity for those who feel on the outskirts of a community to be able to be recognized and supported for who they are.
